Music Notes October 2020

Posted by communications on October 28, 2020 at 10:00 AM

This Sunday is All Saints’ Day. It is such a special day of remembrance and gratitude for all those the Lord has blessed us to know who have passed on. Below is the text for the song that Matt Presson and I will be sharing during the online service this Sunday. It is a beautiful text reminding all those who have put their faith and trust in Christ that we belong to Him. I hope it speaks peace to your soul.


Peace,

John


 

 

“We Are the Lord’s”

Karl J. P. Spitta(1801-1859) Londonderry Aire tune

Tr. Charles T. Astley arr. Roland E. Martin

 

We are the Lord’s.

His all sufficient merit, sealed on the cross to us this grace accords.

We are the Lord’s and all things shall inherit; whether we live or die, we are the Lord’s.

We are the Lord’s. Then let us gladly tender our souls to Him in deeds, not empty words.

Let heart and tongue and life combine to render

no doubtful witness that we are the Lord’s.

 

We are the Lord’s.

No darkness brooding o’er us can make us tremble while this star affords a steady light along the path before us: Faith’s full assurance that we are the Lord’s. We are the Lord’s. No evil can befall us in the dread hour of life’s fast-loos’ning cords; no pangs of death shall even then appall us. Death shall be vanquished, for we are the Lord’s.
