Run to the Father

The next card on my list is the Fathers card, based on the song by Colonel Edward Joy.

Is there a heart o’erbound by sorrow?
Is there a life weighed down by care?
Come to the cross, each burden bearing;
All your anxiety, leave it there.

CHORUS:
All your anxiety, all your care,
Bring to the mercy seat, leave it there;
Never a burden He cannot bear,
Never a friend like Jesus.

No other friend so keen to help you;
No other friend so quick to hear;
No other place to leave your burden;
No other one to hear your prayer.

Come, then, at once; delay no longer;
Heed His entreaty, kind and sweet;
You need not fear a disappointment;
You shall find peace at the mercy seat.

Salvationists know the gift of physically going to the ‘mercy seat’ to talk with God, but we also know that our Father isn’t tied to a wooden bench.

We can, at anytime, run to the Father with our needs, hopes and concerns.

The image in the card is that of a child running to the Father

Inside the card is the words of the hymn as well as a bible verse

“Cast all your anxiety on Him because he cares for you.”

1 Peter 5:7

Again, if you want to buy the card here is a link to the Etsy shop.
