O How Marvelous! O How Wonderful!

O how marvelous and wonderful are hymns?  I just wish there were more people who professionally recorded them in their original forms.  Anyone agree with me?!?

I Stand Amazed in the Presence

(CyberHymnal | MIDI)

I stand amazed in the presence
Of Jesus the Nazarene,
And wonder how He could love me,
A sinner, condemned, unclean.

Refrain

O how marvelous! O how wonderful!
And my song shall ever be:
O how marvelous! O how wonderful!
Is my Savior’s love for me!

For me it was in the garden
He prayed: “Not My will, but Thine.”
He had no tears for His own griefs,
But sweat drops of blood for mine.

Refrain

In pity angels beheld Him,
And came from the world of light
To comfort Him in the sorrows
He bore for my soul that night.

Refrain

He took my sins and my sorrows,
He made them His very own;
He bore the burden to Calvary,
And suffered and died alone.

Refrain

When with the ransomed in glory
His face I at last shall see,
’Twill be my joy through the ages
To sing of His love for me.

Refrain

The best way to run the goats out of the church!

“Feed My sheep.” John 21:17

“Feed the flock of God entrusted to you.” 1 Peter 5:2

The best way to purify the church and keep it pure–is to get rid of all the goats! And the best way to run the goats out of the church–is to feed them ‘sheep food’. God’s sheep will grow in grace under the preaching of grace–but goats will go hungry because they choke on ‘sheep food’. They will soon leave and go somewhere else. Preach sovereign grace!

“Now I commit you to God and to the message of His grace, which is able to build you up and to give you an inheritance among all who are sanctified.” Acts 20:32

(D. J. Ward)
