Hymn of the day

by Richard on March 27, 2011

Son of God, if thy free grace
Again hath raised me up,
Called me still to seek thy face,
And given me back my hope;
Still thy timely help afford,
And all thy loving kindness show:
Keep me, keep me, gracious Lord,
And never let me go!

By me, O my Saviour, stand,
In sore temptation’s hour;
Save me with thine outstretched hand.
And show forth all thy power;
O be mindful of thy word,
Thy all-sufficient grace bestow:
Keep me, keep me, gracious Lord,
And never let me go!

Give me, Lord, a holy fear,
And fix it in my heart,
That I may from evil near
With timely care depart;
Sin be more than hell abhorred;
Till thou destroy the tyrant foe,
Keep me, keep me, gracious Lord,
And never let me go!

Never let me leave thy breast,
From thee, my Saviour, stray;
Thou art my support and rest,
My true and living Way;
My exceeding great Reward,
In heaven above, and earth below:
Keep me, keep me, gracious Lord,
And never let me go!

Charles Wesley

Oh wonderful Richard, with all care and sincerity, I totally, totally love this posting. After experiencing a wonderful sermon this past Sunday, this was “icing on the cake”. As I read this poem I truly felt the Holy Spirit all over me just like when I heard yesterday’s sermon.

Amazing, truly amazing.

Love ya in the Lord and May God bless all who read this posting of Richard’s.
