March 22—Blessed Assurance, Jesus Is Mine

In celebration of the ways God has been speaking to you during this past week, use this Sabbath break during Lent to allow space for your soul to rest and mediate on Christ. Read the psalm, sing the hymn, and spend time worshiping your God.

Psalm 146

Praise the Lord!


Let all that I am praise the Lord.

I will praise the Lord as long as I live.

I will sing praises to my God with my dying breath.


Don’t put your confidence in powerful people;

there is no help for you there.

When they breathe their last, they return to the earth,

and all their plans die with them.

But joyful are those who have the God of Israel as their helper,

whose hope is in the Lord their God.

He made heaven and earth,

the sea, and everything in them.

He keeps every promise forever.

He gives justice to the oppressed

and food to the hungry.

The Lord frees the prisoners.

The Lord opens the eyes of the blind.

The Lord lifts up those who are weighed down.

The Lord loves the godly.

The Lord protects the foreigners among us.

He cares for the orphans and widows,

but he frustrates the plans of the wicked.


The Lord will reign forever.

He will be your God, O Jerusalem, throughout the generations.


Praise the Lord!


Blessed Assurance, Jesus Is Mine by Fanny Crosby

Blessed assurance, Jesus is mine!

O what a foretaste of glory divine!

Heir of salvation, purchase of God,

born of his Spirit, washed in his blood.



This is my story, this is my song,

praising my Savior, all the day long;

this is my story, this is my song,

praising my Savior all the day long.


Perfect submission, perfect delight,

visions of rapture now burst on my sight;

angels descending, bring from above

echoes of mercy, whispers of love. [Refrain]


Perfect submission, all is at rest,

I in my Savior am happy and blest,

watching and waiting, looking above,

filled with his goodness, lost in his love. [Refrain]
