in grateful praise…

“Thou gavest Him, well knowing all that lay before Him here –

The suffering sore, the thorny crown, the cross, the cruel spear–

And in that hour of woe supreme, when Jesus bore our sin,

God’s patient, holy, suffering Lamb, Thou didst forsake Him then.”

–Edward Whyte, “Father and God, in Grateful Love”, verse 2DSC_0226-001

“Bless, bless the Conqueror slain,

Slain in His victory;

Who lived, Who died, Who lives again–

For thee, His church, for thee!”

–Whitlock Gandy, “His Be The Victor’s Name”, verse 4DSC_0522-001

“Lifted up was He to die,

“It is finished,” was His cry;

Now in heaven exalted high;

Hallelujah! What a a Savior!”

–Phillip P. Bliss, “Hallelujah! What a Savior!”, verse 4DSC_0188-001

“The Lord is risen; and death’s dark judgment flood

Is passed, in Him who bought us with His blood.

The Lord is risen: we stand beyond the doom

Of all our sin, through Jesus’ empty tomb.”

–William P. Mackay, “The Lord is Ris’n”, verse 1DSC_0866-001

Thine be the glory, risen, conquering Son,

Endless is the victory Thou o’er death hast won;

Angels in bright raiment rolled the stone away,

Kept the folded grave-clothes, where Thy body lay.

–Edmond L. Budry, “Risen, Conquering Son”, verse 1

I hope no one minds.]
