A Sunday Morning Inspirational Hymn!

Sunday, April 03, 2011

Goooooooooooooood Morning SP Members! Here is another lovely old hymn. The words were created by Fanny J. Crosby in 1870, and the music by William H. Doane, also in 1870. The inspiration came from Col 3:1-4, "set your minds on things above, not on earthly things"

Hymn Title: Safe In The Arms of Jesus

1. Safe in the arms of Jesus, Safe on His gentle breast,
There by His love o'er-shaded, Sweetly my soul shall rest.
Hark! 'tis the voice of angels, Borne in a song to me,
Over the fields of glory, Over the jasper sea; REFRAIN.

2. Safe in the arms of Jesus, Safe from corroding care,
Safe from the world's temptations, Sin cannot harm me there,
Free from the bright of sorrow, Free from my doubts and fears,
Only a few more trials, Only a few more tears. REFRAIN.

3. Jesus, my heart's dear refuge, Jesus has died for me;
Firm on the Rock of Ages, Ever my trust shall be.
Here let me wait with patence, Wait till the night is o'er;
Wait till I see the morning Break on the golden shore; REFRAIN.

Safe in the arms of Jesus, Safe on His gentle breast,
There by His love o'er-shaded, Sweetly my soul shall rest.

Have a glorious Lord's Day and set your mind on things above. In His Glory, Vic.
