Lyrics

I love hymns.

I really do.

I’m going to post some sections of some songs I love below.

“We read thee best in Him who came
To bear for us the cross of shame;
Sent by the Father from on high,
Our life to live, our death to die.

We read thy power to bless and save,
E’en in the darkness of the grave;
Still more in resurrection light,
We read the fullness of thy might.

O love of God, our shield and stay
Through all the perils of our way!
Eternal love, in thee we rest
Forever safe, forever blest.”

“Behold the Man upon a cross,

My sin upon His shoulders

Ashamed I hear my mocking voice,
Call out among the scoffers

It was my sin that held Him there
Until it was accomplished
His dying breath has brought me life
I know that it is finished”

“Merciful God, O abounding in love,
Faithful to keep us from falling;
Guiding our ways with Your fatherly heart,
Growing our faith with each testing.
God speed the day struggles will end;
Faultless we’ll gaze on Your glory.
Then we will stand overwhelmed by the mercy of God.”

"No condemnation now I dread; 
	Jesus, and all in him, is mine; 
	alive in him, my living Head, 
	and clothed in righteousness divine, 
	bold I approach th' eternal throne, 
	and claim the crown, through Christ my own. 
	Bold I approach th' eternal throne, 
	and claim the crown, through Christ my own."

"Were the whole realm of nature mine,
That were a present far too small;
Love so amazing, so divine,
Demands my soul, my life, my all."

 

These sections are just a few of the many songs I love.

 

What are your favorite songs?
