Toplady: The Work, which his Goodness began
In all my prayers for all of you, I always pray with joy because of your partnership in the gospel from the first day until now, being confident of this, that he who began a good work in you will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus.
—Philippians 1:4-6 (NIV)
The Work, which his Goodness began,
The Arm of his Strength will complete;
His Promise is Yea and Amen,
And never was forfeited yet:
Things future, nor things that are now,
Not all things below nor above,
Can make him his Purpose forego,
Or sever my Soul from his Love.
... Augustus Toplady (1740-1778), Hymns and Sacred Poems, London: D. Sedgwick, 1860, p. 140 (see the book)

Quiet time reflection:
Lord, You have marked Your people with a indelible guarantee.
