5. O that day when freed from sinning,
I shall see Thy lovely face;
Clothed then in blood washed linen
How I’ll sing Thy sovereign grace;
Come, my Lord, no longer tarry,
Take my ransomed soul away;
Send thine angels now to carry
Me to realms of endless day.

Oh my, Chris, this is near the top of my favorites. Strangely I have never heard verse five before. It’s not in my Hymn Book. It’s a blessing to me. Thanks so much for sharing it.

All That Thrills My Soul Is Jesus

Who can cheer the heart like Jesus,
By His presence all divine?
True and tender, pure and precious,
O how blest to call Him mine!

All that thrills my soul is Jesus;
He is more than life to me;
And the fairest of ten thousand
In my blessed Lord I see.

Love of Christ so freely given,
Grace of God beyond degree,
Mercy higher than the heaven,
Deeper than the deepest sea!

What a wonderful redemption!
Never can a mortal know
How my sin, tho' red like crimson,
Can be whiter than the snow.

Ev'ry need His hand supplying,
Ev'ry good in Him I see;
On His strength divine relying,
He is all in all to me.

By the crystal flowing river
With the ransomed I will sing,
And forever and forever
Praise and glorify the King.

20 And when he had so said, he shewed unto them his hands and his side. Then were the disciples glad, when they saw the Lord.

I have a bunch of songs from our homechurch that we sang.I was thinking about making a songbook. I will try and think of them all, here is one:

They are real easy to remember.

From Psalm 20:5-7

Some trust in chariots and some in horses but we will remember the name of the Lord our God,

Now know I that the Lord saveth His anointed,

He will hear us from His holy heaven,

With the saving strength of His right hand; they are brought down and fallen but we are risen and stand up right,


I want to pass these on because they have been such a blessing to me. :-)

We used to just sing these with a guitar and tamborines.I find myself singing these at work and in my car. :-)

Here's three more:

I saw the Lord,

I saw the Lord,

And He was high and lifted up and His train filled the temple,

He was high and lifted up and His train filled the temple,

The angels cried holy,

The angels cried holy,

The angels cried holy is the Lord,

Beloved Let Us Love One Another,

For love Is Of God and everyone that loveth Is Born Of God and Knoweth God,

He that Loveth Not knoweth Not God For God Is Love,

So Beloved, Let us Love one another 1 John 4: 7 and 8

This is my commandment that ye love one another that your joy may be full,

That your joy may be full,

This is my commandment that ye love one another that your joy may be full.

Ive got a river of life flowing out of me,

Makes the Lame to Walk and the blind to See,

Opens prison doors and sets the captives free,

Ive got a river of life flowing out of me,

Spring Up Oh well within my soul,

Spring Up Oh well and make me whole,

Spring Up Oh well and give to me that life abundantly,

 2007/11/16 20:50


OK, that's all for now whew! :-) :-) :-)

 Re: be the moon

Hi everyone.

There is a contemporary song that I like titled [i]You are the Sun[/i] by Sara Groves.

I take it as a parable based on the natural relationship between the Sun and the Moon and how the Moon has no natural light of it's own - except what is reflected by its surface from the Sun.

I think of this and what the Lord Jesus said in John 9:5, 12:35-36, and Matthew 5:14.

Part of the words to the song say this:

and I am the Moon

with no light of my own,

still You have made me

to shine.

And as I glow

in this cold dark night,

I know I can't be a light,

unless I turn my face

to You.

I thought of sharing this here, as last night as I was walking to the train station to go home I decided to pass quickly through a park in what is called Rittenhouse Square. In the park there is a fairly large sculpture of a lion. The lion has his teeth bared and his mouth is open. His head is tilted as he appears to be looking down at this serpent, which he has firmly pinned with his paw and you can see how his claws are slightly dug into the body of the serpent, showing that his grip on it is firm.

I've had the opportunity to ask people before what they thought this sculpture signified and to share with them how I thought it might represent the fulfillment of ancient Hebrew scriptures.

Well, last night as I passed by the area where this sculpture is, I was listening to this song, and I noticed a rather large garden of sorts in front of the sculpture. I don't know that I had ever payed attention to this garden before, but for whatever reason it caught my attention as I noticed a plaque near the base of it. The plaque had some information on it, perhaps related to the designer, and then, it had this title

[i]Be the Moon[/i]

Now, I don't really know what the intention of the artists were in creating these things. But as I passed by them, listening to this song, it all had deep significance to me.

It spoke to me the message of this song, that as this garden stood before the sculpture of the lion's victory over the serpent, there in the dark of the night was the message 'be the moon'.

2Corinthians 3:18, 1Peter 2:9, 2 Corinthians 4:6-7.

You are good always
And in all ways
You are working all things
Together for our good
You are good always
In big and small ways
I know I can trust You
In everything You do

With the hard winds of life
Blowing out of control
It can feel like I'm all on my own
But You've given me Your word
And I know You'll never leave
And I've never faced a single storm alone

I can't say it's always
Been a smooth open road
Or turned out the way I'd prefer
But one thing I'm sure of
You've been faithful to me
And I live to give You all that You deserve

Written by Jon Mohr and Brian Johnson

Watch Steve Green sing it:

The Pleasures of the King

To raise majestic mountains
To cause the sea to roar
To brush a crimson setting sun
To make the eagle soar
To bring the newborn cry of life
The hope of every spring
These treasures are the pleasures of the King

To see His people flourish
To live in light of day
To watch His children grow to know
The wonders of His way
To feel the joys of ransomed hearts
And all His mercies bring
These treasures are the pleasures of the King
These treasures are the pleasures of the King

To heal a broken body
To mend a broken heart
To knit together healthy homes
That once lay torn apart
To glory in the praises that
His grateful children sing
These treasures are the pleasures of the King

But of all His regal pleasures
One does stand above the rest
The Son He gave to serve and save
In perfect holiness

Existing pure and faultless
Embodiment of Truth
Guardian of righteousness
With name beyond reproof
His words uphold the universe
In love unwavering
Jesus, You are the treasure of the King
Jesus, You are the pleasure of the King

 Re: Songs with a Message...

Hi everyone.

Lately a popular song called 'there will be a day' has really spoken to me. Part of the lyrics are this:

There will be a day

with no more tears,
no more pain,
and no more fears

There will be a day

when the burdens of this place,
will be no more,
we’ll see Jesus face to face

But until that day, we’ll hold on to you always

As I've been listening to this I was reminded of one day I was walking down the street and I saw this man sitting on a chair in front of a building and he was just weeping.

I went over to him to ask him what was wrong.

He said he was all alone. He must have been maybe 60 years old? He was just weeping.

I started to share with him about the Lord Jesus and how He is God and I remember him saying something like he was raised Muslim and didn't believe that. But at one point I remember him lookling right at me and saying 'you beleive that don't you'.

I asked him if he would like to pray and he agreed. And I tell you I distinctly remember as I prayed it sounded like I heard him speaking in tongues or some language I didn't know for sure.

Maybe a week later I saw him again and he said he was moving in with a Pastor.

There will be a day.
