Sunday musical offering

August 13, 2017

Death shall not destroy my comfort,
Christ shall guide me through the gloom;
Down He’ll send some heavenly convoy,
To escort my spirit home.

Refrain:
Oh, Hallelujah! How I love my Savior!
Oh, Hallelujah! That I do.
Oh, Hallelujah! How I love my Savior!
Mourners, you may love Him too.

Jordan’s stream shall not o’erflow me,
While my Savior’s by my side;
Canaan, Canaan lies before me; 
Soon I’ll cross the swelling tide. (Refrain)

See the happy spirits waiting,
On the banks beyond the stream; 
Sweet responses still repeating,
“Jesus! Jesus!” is their theme. (Refrain)

It’s the birthday of the English hymn writer Charles Wesley (1707-1788), many of whose hymns — this one, for instance — are among the most familiar and best-loved in Christendom.

It’s the birthday of slave-trader-turned-abolitionist John Newton (1725-1807). Newton wrote the words to hundreds of hymns, including “Glorious Things of Thee Are Spoken,” “May the Grace of Christ Our Savior,” “How Sweet the Name of Jesus Sounds,” and his greatest hit, “Amazing Grace.”
