A child of god is one who is blessed
with eternal life
, because they have made a choice to accept their status as an extension of the Body of Christ
. They need never fear
the flames of hell
, because they are saved
, and, because they have chosen, it is as if they had always been one of God
Words: Fanny Crosby, 1886.
Music: Ira D. Sankey
O child of God, wait patiently when dark thy path may be,
And let thy faith
lean trustingly on Him Who cares for Thee;
And though the clouds hang drearily upon the brow of night,
Yet in the morning joy
will come, and fill thy soul
O child of God, He loveth thee, and thou art all His own;
With gentle hand He leadeth thee, thou dost not walk alone
And though thou watchest wearily the long and stormy night,
Yet in the morning joy will come, and fill thy soul with light.
O child of God, how peacefully He calms thy fears to rest,
And draws thee upward tenderly, where dwell the pure and blest
And He Who bendeth silently above the gloom of night
Will take thee home where endless joy shall fill thy soul with light.
