Word To Live By Wednesday

I wanted to share this hymn with you today.  It doesn't fall into my usual format of sharing a Bible verse on Wednesday, but I've been singing it all day long.  Since the Lord put it in my heart today, I thought I'd put it here for you.

Love Lifted Me

I was sinking deep in sin, far from the peaceful shore,
Very deeply stained within, sinking to rise no more,
But the Master of the sea, heard my despairing cry,
From the waters lifted me, now safe am I.

Love lifted me!
Love lifted me!
When nothing else could help,
Love lifted me!

All my heart to Him I give, ever to Him I’ll cling
In His blessèd presence live, ever His praises sing,
Love so mighty and so true, merits my soul’s best songs,
Faithful, loving service too, to Him belongs.

Love lifted me!
Love lifted me!
When nothing else could help,
Love lifted me!

Souls in danger look above, Jesus completely saves,
He will lift you by His love, out of the angry waves.
He’s the Master of the sea, billows His will obey,
He your Savior wants to be, be saved today.

Love lifted me!
Love lifted me!
When nothing else could help,
Love lifted me!

His love lifts us on a daily basis...even after salvation, we still need His love so much!

"Jesus completely saves".....wow, I needed to read those words today. "Jesus completely saves"....the enemy of our souls, and our sin nature would love for us to believe the opposite....that we are hopeless, BUT "Jesus completely saves".....AWESOME ~ thank you for sharing this.....there is nothing like the old hymns. Just read a book on Fanny Crosby....WOW ~ talk about a poet! PS Still loving your flower show! It is the BEST!!!:>)
