Excellent Expectations

"There failed not ought of any good thing which the LORD had spoken unto the house of Israel; all came to pass" (Joshua 21:45).  "Surely there is an end; and thine expectation shall not be cut off" (Proverbs 23:18).  "Seek ye the kingdom of God; and all these things shall be added unto you.  Fear not, little flock; for it is your Father's good pleasure to give you the kingdom" (Luke 12:31,32). 

God's blessings on us have prevailed;
His promises are never broken.
There's not a single thing that failed
Of everything the Lord has spoken. 

We know that there will be an end
To every fleeting thing we see,
Yet we are sure we have a Friend
In Christ for all eternity. 

We rightly have an expectation
That God abundantly will bless
Each one who seeks His exaltation,
His kingdom, and His righteousness. 

O risen Lord, how excellent
Our expectations are from You! 
In You alone we rest content,
Assured Your promises are true.
