A precious life faced imminent peril
In a fallen world inherently evil
Can the unrighteous be saved
From earthly designs so depraved
God’s faithful Son is ever true
In Him all things are made new
For there is only one holy King
Of whom all the angels sing
His Providence in Jehosheba’s story
Preserved David’s lineage for His glory!
Redeeming this lost child for all eternity
By His wondrous grace and mercy!
“But Jehosheba, the daughter of King Joram, sister of Ahaziah, took Joash the son of Ahaziah and stole him away from among the king’s sons who were being put to death, and she put him and his nurse in a bedroom. Thus they hid him from Athaliah, so that he was not put to death.”
2 Kings 11:2 ESV
