Good morning, precious friends.
Won't you join me for a time of relaxation and peacefulness?
Grab a delightful tea cup and fill it with your favorite hot drink.
This morning I will be having coffee in my white tea cup from a dear friend.
I have grabbed several old hymnal books for us to enjoy.
One thing I love to do is read the old hymns penned by previous authors.
To me, the words are very heart-felt and soul-stirring.
Let us find a song with precious words
to go along with our hot drink and sweet-smelling lilacs.
Ah....here is a lovely song,
He Gave Himself
by T.O. Chisholm.
He gave Himself for my redemption, Laid down His life, to save my own;
No less a price could pay my ransom, No other sacrifice atone.
He gave Himself a free oblation, He counted not the cross of shame,
To bring to me His great salvation and life eternal thro' His name.
"He gave Himself!" I read them over, Those words that mean so much to me;
I strive in vain to grasp their meaning, How love so wonderful could be.
He gave Himself! they mocked and smote Him, And nailed Him there upon the tree;
He bore it all in meek submission and died a sinners death for me.
He gave Himself! His love hath conquered my stubborn will, my sinful pride;
My broken heart to Him is clinging, Who for my sake was crucified.
He gave Himself, my precious Savior, I never knew such love before!
Now He is mine, yes, mine forever, And I am His forevermore!
I am crucified with Christ: nevertheless I live; yet not I, but Christ liveth in me:
and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by faith of the Son of God,
who loved me, and gave himself for me.
~ Galatians 2:20 ~
He, our Lord and Savior, gave Himself for you and me...what a thought!
Have you ever known such great love as that of the love of Jesus Christ?
"He bore it all in meek submission and died a sinners death for me"
Such wondrous love and compassion the Lord has bestowed upon us.
Thank you for joining me for a time of morning solitude
and sweet reflection upon Jesus our Lord.
May your week be filled with blessings.
Love and hugs :)
