Today at church we sang a hymn just before we passed the sacrament. Its titled "Behold the Great Redeemer Die." I have heard this hymn many times in my life, but for some reason today it really stood out to me.
I wanna write down some of the hymns.....
"Behold the great Redeemer die, A broken law to satisfy.
He dies a sacrifice for sin, He dies a sacrifice for sin,
That man may live and glory win.
While guilty men his pains deride, They pierce his hands and feet and side.
And with insulting scoffs and scorns, And with insulting scoffs and scorns,
They crown his head with plaited thorns.
Although in agony he hung, No murm'ring word escaped his tongue.
His high commission to fulfill, His high commission to fulfill,
He magnified his Father's will.
'Father, from me remove this cup. Yet, if thou wilt, I'll drink it up.
I've done the work thou gavest me, I've done the work thou gavest me,
Receive my spirit unto thee.'
HE LIVES-he lives. We humbly now Around these sacred symbols bow
And seek, as Saints of latter days, And seek, as Saints of latter days.
To do his will and live his praise."
This is my new favorite hymn. I love my Savior with all my heart. I'm grateful to be sharing His gospel.
Remember who you are and what you stand for!
