In Preparation for the Lord’s Day: I Hear the Words of Love


I Hear the Words of Love
ST. MICHAEL

image

I hear the words of love,
I gaze upon the blood,
I see the mighty sacrifice,
and I have peace with God.

’Tis everlasting peace,
sure as Jehovah’s name;
’tis stable as his steadfast throne,
for evermore the same.

The clouds may go and come,
and storms may sweep my sky,
this blood-sealed friendship changes not,
the cross is ever nigh.

I change—he changes not;
The Christ can never die;
His love, not mine, the resting-place;
His truth, not mine, the tie.

My love is oftimes low,
my joy still ebbs and flows,
but peace with him remains the same;
No change Jehovah knows.

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

[Full hymn as originally published by Horatius Bonar]

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.
