In Preparation for the Lord’s Day: Not All the Outward Forms


Not All the Outward Forms on Earth
VOX DILECTI

image

Not all the outward forms on earth,
nor rites that God has giv’n,
nor will of man, nor blood, nor birth,
can raise a soul to heav’n.
The sov’reign will of God alone
creates us heirs of grace
born in the image of His Son,
a new, peculiar race.

The Spirit, like some heav’nly wind,
blows on the sons of flesh,
new models all the carnal mind,
and forms the man afresh.
Our quickened souls awake, and rise
from the long sleep of death;
on heav’nly things we fix our eyes,
and praise employs our breath.

Hymns to the Living God (Religious Affections Ministries, 2017).

Right tune, wrong hymn:

The current hymnal for this series is Hymns to the Living God, published by Religious Affections Ministries. This is such a good hymnal that I’m pretty sure I could happily post every hymn it contains, but I’ll be limiting selections to hymns I have never posted here before, especially those unfamiliar to me (of which there are many). For more information and to purchase this hymnal, visit Religious Affections Ministries.
