Jesus is mine :)

Blessed assurance, Jesus is mine;
Oh, what a foretaste of glory divine!
Heir of salvation, purchase of God,
Born of His Spirit, washed in His blood.

This is my story, this is my song,
Praising my Savior all the day long.
This is my story, this is my song,
Praising my Savior all the day long.

Perfect submission, perfect delight,
Visions of rapture now burst on my sight;
Angels descending, bring from above
Echoes of mercy, whispers of love.

Praising my Savior all the day long.

Perfect submission, all is at rest,
I in my Savior am happy and blest;
Watching and waiting, looking above,
Filled with His goodness, lost in His love

Fanny Crosby

 

 

 

 

Tune composer Phoebe Palmer Knapp (1839-1908) played a melody to Fanny Crosby and asked, “What does the melody say to you?”

Crosby replied that the tune said, “Blessed assurance, Jesus is mine!” and proceeded to recite the entire first stanza of the now-famous hymn.

Knapp was one of several tune writers that worked with Fanny Crosby. It was not unusual for one of her texts to be inspired by a preexisting tune. Knapp was the composer of more than five hundred gospel hymns and tunes.

Ancient of Days(lyrics)

Blessing and Honour
Glory and Power
Be unto the ancient of days
From every nation
All of creation
Bow before the ancient of days

Bridge:
Every tongue in heaven and earth
Shall declare your glory
Every knee shall bow at your throne
In worship
You will be exalted oh God
And your kingdom shall not pass away
Oh ancient of days

Chorus:
Your kingdom shall reign over all the earth
Sing to the ancient of days
For none can compare to your matchless worth
Sing to the ancient of days

BE THOU MY VISION, O LORD, OF MY HEART(SONG)

  1. Be Thou my Vision, O Lord of my heart;
    
    Naught be all else to me, save that Thou art;
    
    Thou my best Thought, by day or by night,
    
    Waking or sleeping, Thy presence my light.
  2. Be Thou my Wisdom, and Thou my true Word;
    
    I ever with Thee and Thou with me, Lord;
    
    Thou my great Father, I Thy true son;
    
    Thou in me dwelling, and I with Thee one.
  3. Be Thou my battle Shield, Sword for the fight;
    
    Be Thou my Dignity, Thou my Delight;
    
    Thou my soul’s Shelter, Thou my high Tow’r:
    
    Raise Thou me heav’nward, O Pow’r of my pow’r.
  4. Riches I heed not, nor man’s empty praise,
    
    Thou mine Inheritance, now and always:
    
    Thou and Thou only, first in my heart,
    
    High King of Heaven, my Treasure Thou art.
  5. High King of Heaven, my victory won,
    
    May I reach Heaven’s joys, O bright Heav’n’s Sun!
    
    Heart of my own heart, whate’er befall,
    
    Still be my Vision, O Ruler of all.

Be Thou My Vision

(Song) Nothing is impossible

Nothing Is Impossible

 

nothing is impossible

 

(1) I read in the Bible the promise of God,

That nothing for Him is too hard;

Impossible things He has promised to do,

If we faithfully trust in His Word.

      

 

 

CHORUS:

nothing is impossible

Nothing is impossible

when you put your trust in God;

Nothing is impossible

when you’re trusting in His Word.

Hearken to the voice of God to thee:

“Is there anything too hard for Me?”

Then put your trust in God alone

and rest upon His Word–

For ev’rything, O ev’rything,

Yes, ev’rything is possible with God!

 

nothing is impossible

(2) The word of the Lord is an anchor secure,

When winds of uncertainty blow:

Though man in his weakness may falter and fail,

His Word will not fail us we know.

 

 

nothing is impossible

(3)___ All things are possible, this is His Word,

Receive it ‘tis written for you,

Believe in His promises, God cannot fail,

For what He has said He will do.

 

Author:

Eugene L. Clark literally personified the title of his most famous song, “Nothing Is Impossible.”

       Although his fingers once flew across the piano keyboard, he later became a victim of crippling arthritis and also totally blind.

When it finally became impossible for Clark to continue playing the organ or piano, he requested that they bring to his bedside a dictating machine. With this marvelous electric invention and his most valuable possession, a keen mind, he continued to give to the world his beautiful musical offering.

       A note, a rest, a bar, and a dot at a time, the machine has recorded the product of his active mind—something that neither total blindness nor crippling arthritis could conquer.

       Hundreds of gospel songs and hymns, scores of choir arrangements, and three missionary cantatas have flowed through his dedicated heart and mind into the Christian world.

       His best-known song, “Nothing Is Impossible,” was introduced in 1964. Clark was quick to credit his wife with a great deal of the success of his ministry. Her love, loyalty, and patience were invaluable assets to his work.
