THE MUSIC FROM BEYOND
Have you ever heard
Music, as it were,
From another world?
It couldn’t be from here —
Nothing like this was ever heard
Anywhere, anytime on this earth,
Except, perhaps at the Savior’s Birth!
No one but I could hear it,
But I was undeterred…
When I first heard this music,
This world began to slowly slip away,
And I knew for certain,
I didn’t want to stay,
Any longer, not a… Continue reading
When This Passing World Is Done
By Robert Murray McCheyne, 1837
When this passing world is done,
When has sunk yon glaring sun,
When we stand with Christ in glory,
Looking o’er life’s finished story,
Then, Lord, shall I fully know,
Not till then, how much I owe.
When I hear the wicked call,
On the rocks and hills to fall,
When I see them start to shrink,
On the fiery deluge brink,
Then, Lord, shall I fully… Continue reading
The Lamb Of God And Me
The “Just” dying for the unjust was not an invitation,
But a transaction written in blood before the world’s foundation,
It was not an offer, it was a purchase, an undeniable done deal,
His precious crimson blood on my behalf was the guaranteed seal.
So the purchase of my salvation could not ever, ever fail.
Else God’s hopes would have been of absolutely no avail…
If God had hoped my heart of… Continue reading
The Bible – A Poem
by C.T. Studd, missionary
What could we do without the Book
That God gave us to read?
No more than any farmer
Who hadn’t any seed!
No other tells us of our Lord,
The God of grace and love,
Who made the whole creation,
This world and those above.
What could we do were we without
The Gospels or the Acts?
No more than could a barrister
Who didn’t… Continue reading
Only One Life
A poem by C.T. Studd, missionary
Two little lines I heard one day,
Traveling along life’s busy way;
Bringing conviction to my heart,
And from my mind would not depart;
Only one life, ’twill soon be past,
Only what’s done for Christ will last.
Only one life, yes only one,
Soon will its fleeting hours be done;
Then, in ‘that day’ my Lord to meet,
And stand before His Judgment seat;
Only one life, ’twill… Continue reading
Christ Died For The Ungodly
by Horatius Bonar
The divine testimony concerning man is, that he is a sinner. God bears witness against him, not for him; and testifies that "there is none righteous, no, not one"; that there is "none that doeth good"; none "that understandeth"; none that even seeks after God, and, still more, none that loves Him (Psa. 14:1-3; Rom. 3:10-12). God speaks of man kindly, but severely; as one yearning over a lost child, yet as one who will make no terms with sin, and will "by no means clear the guilty." <continued>
