Our shield and our defender

I was humming this hymn to myself yesterday.

We rest on Thee, our Shield and our Defender.
Thine is the battle, Thine shall be the praise;
When passing through the gates of pearly splendor,
Victors, we rest with Thee, through endless days.

It’s a great reminder of the confidence Christians can have in God’s oversight of our lives even in hard times. Apparently it was sung by the 5 missionaries martyred in Ecuador in 1955 just before they were killed.

Here’s one rendition of it.
