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?

The Lord is with us, Amen.

Each day, Lord,

Your mercy is new,

You watch us, prepare us,

And make us renewed.

Even when we,

So weak and so frail,

Fail to see You,

You pick up our souls,

Our minds are made fresh,

Our souls are refreshed,

The Lord is with us,

Amen.

This is a poem I wrote after Election Day, it doesn’t really rhyme, but the words are true.
