THE CHRISTIAN QUOTATION OF THE DAY
Christ, our Light
Thursday, January 25, 2001
Feast of the Conversion of Paul

O for a thousand tongues to sing
My great Redeemer’s praise,
The glories of my God and King,
The triumphs of his grace!
 
My gracious Master and my God,
Assist me to proclaim,
To spread through all the earth abroad
The honours of thy name.
 
Jesus! the name that charms our fears,
That bids our sorrows cease;
’Tis music in the sinner’s ears,
’Tis life, and health, and peace.
 
He breaks the power of cancelled sin,
He sets the prisoner free;
His blood can make the foulest clean,
His blood availed for me.
 
He speaks, and, listening to his voice,
New life the dead receive,
The mournful, broken hearts rejoice,
The humble poor believe.
 
Hear him, ye deaf; his praise, ye dumb,
Your loosened tongues employ;
Ye blind, behold your Saviour come,
And leap, ye lame, for joy.
 
Look unto him, ye nations, own
Your God, ye fallen race;
Look, and be saved through faith alone,
Be justified by grace.
 
See all your sins on Jesus laid:
The Lamb of God was slain,
His soul was once an offering made
For every soul of man.
 
Awake from guilty nature’s sleep,
And Christ shall give you light,
Cast all your sins into the deep,
And wash you purest white.
 
With me, your chief, ye then shall know,
Shall feel your sins forgiven;
Anticipate your heaven below,
And own that love is heaven.
... Charles Wesley, from Hymns and Sacred Poems [1740] (see the book; see also Ps. 33:1-4; Ps. 96:1-2; 98:1-6; 144:9-10; Col. 3:16; Eph. 5:19; Rev. 5:9; more at God, Grace, Honor, Jesus, Lamb, Praise, Prisoner, Redemption, Sinner, Worship)
