Able To Keep

*Pastor’s Note: A.B. Simpson was a very well respected Canadian preacher, theologian and author who lived from December 15, 1843 to October 29, 1919. My prayer is that you will be blessed and inspired by his poetry as much as I am.

Able To Keep

“Now unto Him that is able to guard you from stumbling, be glory.” – Jude 24-25.

I was so weary of sinning and faltering,
   Ever repenting and sinning again;
But there is One who can keep me from stumbling;
   Glory to Jesus forever, Amen!

Oh, how my failures have stumbled Thy children,
   Plunged me in darkness and wounded me sore,
Grieved and dishonored my Saviour and Master!
   Saviour, henceforth may my stumblings be o’er.

Once I believed I must always be stumbling
   For my old nature was poisoned with sin;
Now there’s a mightier Power upholds me,
   Cleansing and keeping and dwelling within.

Jesus is able to keep me from stumbling,
   And to present me some glorious day
Faultless and spotless before Him in glory
   Where I shall trust Him and praise Him always.
