A.W. Tozer compiled, in The Christian Book of Mystical Verse some of his favorite devotional verse to share with us. He says “it has been carefully and lovingly prepared for those God-enamored persons who … lack the gift that would enable them to express their feelings adequately.

While the word mystic is used in Eastern religion, and has crept inappropriately into some churches, to A.W. Tozer it refers to an evangelical Christian “who has been brought by the Gospel into intimate fellowship with the Godhead.”

Today, I share with you All Must Be Well, Mary Bowley Peters, 1813-1856

Through the love of God our Saviour,
All will be well;
Free and changeless is His favor,
All, all is well;
Precious is the blood that heal’d us,
Perfect is the grace that seal’d us,
Strong the hand stretch’d out to shield us,
All must be well.

Though we pass through tribulation,
All will be well;
Ours is such a full salvation,
All, all is well;
Happy, still in God confiding,
Fruitful, if in Christ abiding
Holy, through the Spirit’s guiding,
All must be well.

We expect a bright tomorrow,
All will be well;
Faith can sing, through days of sorrow,
All, all is well;
On our Father’s love relying,
Jesus ev’ry need supplying,
Or in living or in dying,
All must be well.

Lord Bless, Keep, Shine. . .
