Sabbath Rest – Yet Not I, But Through Christ in Me

We sang this hymn in worship today –

To this I hold, my hope is only Jesus
For my life is wholly bound to His
Oh how strange and divine, I can sing: all is mine
Yet not I, but through Christ in me

What gift of grace is Jesus my redeemer
There is no more for heaven now to give
He is my joy, my righteousness, and freedom
My steadfast love, my deep and boundless peace

To this I hold, my hope is only Jesus
For my life is wholly bound to His
Oh how strange and divine, I can sing: all is mine
Yet not I, but through Christ in me

The night is dark but I am not forsaken
For by my side, the Savior He will stay
I labor on in weakness and rejoicing
For in my need, His power is displayed

To this I hold, my Shepherd will defend me
Through the deepest valley He will lead
Oh the night has been won, and I shall overcome
Yet not I, but through Christ in me

No fate I dread, I know I am forgiven
The future sure, the price it has been paid
For Jesus bled and suffered for my pardon
And He was raised to overthrow the grave

To this I hold, my sin has been defeated
Jesus now and ever is my plea
Oh the chains are released, I can sing: I am free
Yet not I, but through Christ in me

With every breath I long to follow Jesus
For He has said that He will bring me home
And day by day I know He will renew me
Until I stand with joy before the throne

To this I hold, my hope is only Jesus
All the glory evermore to Him
When the race is complete, still my lips shall repeat
Yet not I, but through Christ in me

To this I hold, my hope is only Jesus
All the glory evermore to Him
When the race is complete, still my lips shall repeat
Yet not I, but through Christ in me

When the race is complete, still my lips shall repeat
Yet not I, but through Christ in me

Yet not I, but through Christ in me
Yet not I, but through Christ in me

Sabbath Rest – Father’s Day Thoughts


Ah, Father’s Day. So many emotions are wrapped up in this day – longing (my dad passed away in 1999), joy (seeing our boys become wonderful Dads), thankfulness (for the Dad my children had),  hope (seeing this next generation learn how to be a good Dad from their fathers) and maybe even some regrets (thing left unsaid, bridges not mended). Gary has long said to our boys – “I hope I did a better job being a Dad than my father, and I pray you will do a better job than I did.” That has long been our prayer!
As I was searching for a hymn on this Father’s Day, I kept coming back to the Getty Family Weekly Hymn Sing. This week’s video (though a little longer) was especially tender, so if you have time time I recommend watching it through. But even if you only watch it through their first song, I pray you’ll be blessed! I’ve included the lyrics for that first song – His Mercy is More. I’m so thankful for a Heavenly Father who loves us with a love that “remembers no wrongs we have done”.

 


What love could remember no wrongs we have done
Omniscient, all knowing, He counts not their sum
Thrown into a sea without bottom or shore
Our sins they are many, His mercy is more

Praise the Lord, His mercy is more
Stronger than darkness, new every morn
Our sins they are many, His mercy is more

What patience would wait as we constantly roam
What Father, so tender, is calling us home
He welcomes the weakest, the vilest, the poor
Our sins they are many, His mercy is more

Praise the Lord, His mercy is more
Stronger than darkness, new every morn
Our sins they are many, His mercy is more
So much more

What riches of kindness He lavished on us
His blood was the payment, His life was the cost
We stood ‘neath a debt we could never afford
Our sins they are many, His mercy is more
So much more!

Praise the Lord, His mercy is more
Stronger than darkness, new every morn
Our sins they are many, His mercy is more
Praise the Lord, His mercy is more
Stronger than darkness, new every morn
Our sins they are many, His mercy is more
Praise the Lord, His mercy is more
Stronger than darkness, new every morn
Our sins they are many, His mercy is more

Sabbath Rest – Come Thou Fount of Every Blessing

This is a slightly different arrangement of a favorite hymn of mine that I found today. Maybe you will like it too! There is a new verse, so feel free to follow along with the lyrics below.

Written by the Baptist Pastor Robert Robinson in 1757, the words of the beloved hymn Come Thou Fount still ring true today. The new bridge & verse was written to reflect the very heart of Awaken Generation, which is to stir the children of God to awaken to their kingdom calling & to celebrate in an eternal, Christ-won victory.

Come, Thou Fount of every blessing
Tune my heart to sing Thy grace
Streams of mercy, never ceasing
Call for songs of loudest praise
Teach me some melodious sonnet
Sung by flaming tongues above
Praise the mount, I’m fixed upon it
Mount of Thy redeeming love

Jesus sought me when a stranger
Wandering from the fold of God
He, to rescue me from danger
Interposed His precious blood
How his kindness yet pursues me
Mortal tongue can never tell
Clothed in flesh till death shall lose me
I cannot proclaim it well

Oh, to grace how great a debtor
Daily I’m constrained to be
Let that goodness like a fetter
Bind my wandering heart to Thee
Prone to wander, Lord, I feel it
Prone to leave the God I love
Here’s my heart, oh, take and seal it
Seal it for Thy courts above

Hallelujah, He has saved me
Hallelujah, He has come
Hallelujah, it is finished
O the victory has been won

O awaken all he children
Hear the call of Father’s love
This salvation not for keeping
But to share and to award
A generation You desire
Bringing Jesus to the lost
No other worthy cause we cling to
Than the one shown on the cross

Here is the story of how this arrangement came to be.

 

Sabbath Rest – Behold Our God!

In these days of ever changing realities, how wonderful to cling to the God who has held the oceans in his hands? (And thank you, Connie, for bringing this beautiful song to my attention!)

Who has held the oceans in his hands?
Who has numbered every grain of sand?
Kings and nations tremble at his voice
All creation rises to rejoice

Behold our God, seated on his throne
Come, let us adore him
Behold our king, nothing can compare
Come, let us adore him

Who has given counsel to the Lord?
Who can question any of his words?
Who can teach, the one who knows all things?
Who can fathom all his wondrous deeds?

Behold our God, seated on his throne
Come, let us adore him
Behold our king, nothing can compare
Come, let us adore him

Who has felt the nails upon his hands?
Bearing all the guilt of sinful man
God eternal, humbled to the grave
Jesus, Savior, risen now to reign

Behold our God, seated on his throne
Come, let us adore him
Behold our king, nothing can compare
Come, let us adore him

You will reign forever (let Your glory fill the Earth)
You will reign forever (let Your glory fill the Earth)

Sabbath Rest – Family Hymn Sing

As we’ve been gathering around our TV’s and computers for Church these days, I was searching for an hope-filled hymn to share with you all today. As I was scrolling through You-Tube options, I came across this live Family Hymn Sing done by the Getty family. I hope your heart is filled with joy as mine was as I watched this sweet family sing praises to the God who is the source of our Hope!
