Psalms, Hymns, & Spiritual Songs: “When I Can Read My Title Clear”

"When I Can Read My Title Clear" Beautiful hymn about our identity in Christ and how we can face any trials when we can clearly see our place in Christ. 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.

When I Can Read My Title Clear

by Issac Watts (1707)

When I can read my title clear
To mansions in the skies,
I’ll bid farewell to every fear,
And wipe my weeping eyes;
And wipe my weeping eyes,
And wipe my weeping eyes,
I’ll bid farewell to every fear,
And wipe my weeping eyes.

"When I Can Read My Title Clear" Beautiful hymn about our identity in Christ and how we can face any trials when we can clearly see our place in Christ.Should earth against my soul engage,
And fiery darts be hurled,
Then I can smile at Satan’s rage,
And face a frowning world;
And face a frowning world,
And face a frowning world,
Then I can smile at Satan’s rage,
And face a frowning world.

Let cares, like a wild deluge come,
And storms of sorrow fall!
May I but safely reach my home,
My God, my heav’n, my all;
My God, my heav’n, my all,
My God, my heav’n, my all,
May I but safely reach my home,
My God, my heav’n, my all.

There I shall bathe my weary soul
In seas of heav’nly rest,
And not a wave of trouble roll
Across my peaceful breast;
Across my peaceful breast,
Across my peaceful breast,
And not a wave of trouble roll
Across my peaceful breast.

Amen

  • I’ve always wondered what the difference between psalms, hymns, and spiritual songs was in Paul’s day when this was written. This is nonetheless a lovely hymn you’ve shared. Thanks for sharing this at Booknificent Thursday on Mommynificent.com this week! Always a pleasure to have you!
