In Ephesians 5:15-21, we are given directions on how to properly live as Christians. One of these is to sing psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing and making melody to the Lord with your heart.
Each Monday, I share a song from history or present day that present a high view of God, praise Him, and teaches solid doctrine.
Let Thy Blood in Mercy Poured
by Unknown Author
Let Thy blood in mercy poured,
Let Thy gracious body broken,
Be to me, O gracious Lord,
Of Thy boundless love the token:
Thou didst give Thyself for me,
Now I give myself to Thee.
Thou didst die that I might live;
Blessed Lord, Thou cam’st to save me;
All that love of God could give
Jesus by His sorrows gave me.
By the thorns that crowned Thy brow,
By the spear wound and the nailing,
By the pain and death, I now
Claim, O Christ, Thy love unfailing.
Wilt Thou own the gift I bring?
All my penitence I give Thee;
Thou art my exalted King,
Of Thy matchless love forgive me.
