Hymn Selection


JESUS is a glorious Saviour,
Theme of heav'n's eternal song;
Peace He offers thee, and pardon.
Wilt thou now to Him belong?
Is thy heart oppressed with sorrow
In this world where death is rife?
One who knows and understands thee,
Bids thee come - in Him is life.
He would turn thee from sin's pleasures,
Where no lasting joy is found;
Set before thee hidden treasures,
Grace that would to thee abound.
Ere thy heart commenced its beating,
Or thine eyes beheld the light,
Love divine for men was planning
Happiness in glory bright.
Even though thy sins condemn thee,
Graver still thy sinful state;
He who knows it died to save thee,
Bore sin's load in all its weight.
Now He lives a Man in heaven,
Glory-crowned at God's right hand,
Waiting now to save and bless thee,
Wide outstretched His gracious hand.
