Conference Highlights, pt. 2

Good afternoon!

Here's another conference highlight, hymn-wise. I loved this one even before the conference. It's one of my most favorite hymns. This is actually written by Calvin. Enjoy!

Have a great day! It's beautiful outside!

In our Sure Redeemer,

Sarah

I Greet Thee Who My Sure Redeemer Art

I greet thee, who my sure Redeemer art,
My only trust and Saviour of my heart,
Who pain didst undergo for my poor sake;
I pray thee from our hearts all cares to take.

Thou art the King of mercy and of grace,
Reigning omnipotent in every place:
So come, O King, and our whole being sway;
Shine on us with the light of thy pure day.

Thou art the life, by which alone we live,
And all our substance and our strength receive;
O comfort us in death's approaching hour,
Strong-hearted then to face it by thy pow'r.

Thou hast the true and perfect gentleness,
No harshness hast thou and no bitterness:
Make us to taste the sweet grace found in thee
And ever stay in thy sweet unity.

Our hope is in no other save in thee;
Our faith is built upon thy promise free;
O grant to us such stronger hope and sure
That we can boldly conquer and endure.

Brielle,

I thought of you as I was posting hoping that you would check the blog this week. I know you love this hymn and want it sung at your funeral. I'm with ya...one of my most favorites ever :) Such sweet comfort and precious promises! We sung it twice at the conference and I thought of you :)

Lovingly,

Sarah
