In my William Jay’s reading, Morning Exercises, today this stuck out:
‘He will be our guide even into death.’ – Psalm xlviii, 14

“We resemble the Jews in the wilderness; we are not in Egypt, and we are not in Canaan, but journeying from on to the other. We are delivered from our natural state, but before we can enter glory, ‘We have this desert world to pass; A dangerous and a tiresome place.’ And as the Jews were not left to themselves, but had a conductor, so have we – ‘This God is our Hod for ever and ever; He will be our guide even unto death.’… In a journey it is unnecessary for the traveller to know the road, but the guide ought to know it; and when He is well acquainted with it, and we have full confidence in Him, we shall feel satisfaction, not withstanding our own ignorance.”

I am not sure if Dr. Jay adds hymnody to his devotionals that I am not acquainted with or if it is his own literary prose, but it adds a lot to his writings and I use them as a synopsis of the lesson.

He offers this in today’s reading toward the end,
“Oh, if my Lord would come and MEET –
My soul would stretch her wings in haste,
Fly fearless through Death’s iron gate,
Nor feel the terrors as she pass’d.”

Soli Deo Gloria!
