Hymn of the day

by Richard on February 27, 2011

Father of Jesus Christ — my Lord,
My Saviour and my Head –
I trust in thee, whose powerful word
Has raised him from the dead.

Thou know’st for my offence he died,
And rose again for me,
Fully and freely justified
That I might live to thee.

Faith in thy power thou seest I have,
For thou this faith hast wrought;
Dead souls thou callest from their grave,
And speakest worlds from nought.

In hope, against all human hope,
Self-desperate, I believe;
Thy quickening Word shall raise me up,
Thou shalt thy Spirit give.

Faith, mighty faith, the promise sees,
And looks to that alone;
Laughs at impossibilities,
And cries, “It shall be done!”

Obedient faith that waits on thee,
Thou never wilt reprove;
But thou wilt form thy Son in me,
And perfect me in love.

Charles Wesley

Welcome back Richard! We all missed you (thought you’d been abducted by aliens. Did you hear Kim et al on Radio 4 this morning?

Joy abounding - and not a moment too soon!
Pax,
The friggin’ sorcerer’s apprentice.

You’re all very kind. I’m glad to be back.

I don’t normally listen to the worship on Radio 4, but I was driving to a preaching appointment in South Wales this morning so was able to catch up with some Sketty folk on the wireless. Some familiar voices!
