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.
The only true and pleasing worship we can offer our Lord is that which He has instructed us in His Word. Only songs that align with Scripture can be considered worthy candidates for offering our God for praise and worship.
Each Monday, I share a song from history or present day that present a high view of God, praise Him, and teaches solid doctrine.
None Other Lamb
by Christina Rossetti (1892)
None other Lamb, none other Name,
None other hope in Heav’n or earth or sea,
None other hiding place from guilt and shame,
None beside Thee!
My faith burns low, my hope burns low;
Only my heart’s desire cries out in me
By the deep thunder of its want and woe,
Cries out to Thee.
Lord, Thou art Life, though I be dead;
Love’s fire Thou art, however cold I be:
Nor Heav’n have I, nor place to lay my head,
Nor home, but Thee.
