Hymn V: Thy Faithfulness, Lord - Poem by John Wesley

Thy faithfulness, Lord, Each moment we find,
So true to thy word, So loving and kind!
Thy mercy so tender To all the lost race,
The vilest offender May turn and find grace.

The mercy I feel To others I show,
I set to my seal That Jesus is true:
Ye all may find favour Who come at his call,
O come to my Saviour, His grace is for all!

To save what was lost, from heaven he came;
Come, sinners, and trust In Jesus's name.
He offers you pardon; He bids you be free;
"If sin be your burden, O come unto me!"

O let me commend My Saviour to you,
The publican's friend And Advocate too,
For you he is pleading His merits and death,
With God interceding for sinners beneath.

Then let us submit His grace to receive,
Fall down at his feet And gladly believe:
We all are forgiven For Jesus's sake:
Our title to heaven His merits we take.

    To save what was lost, from heaven he came;
    Come, sinners, and trust In Jesus's name.
    He offers you pardon; He bids you be free;
    If sin be your burden, O come unto me!
    A nice praise of Godly things.

    The unvarying scansion and rhymes are an absolute bore. As is the hookum about sin and redemption through faith in a personification of deity. Faith I can grapple with, but not when it's confined to a delineated set of principles applied by a hierarchy of anointed figures. Taken as a metaphor, okay. There are lessons there to be decoded and absorbed. But as literal or historical fact it just isn't borne out as complying to the greater body of knowledge assembled by scientific investigation.

    These lines are all about Jesus! I share and love every line. They shine in me and bounce like a stone on the water leaving a long aftertaste! (Report) Reply

    The true God is different from the Lord Jesus (John 17: 1-3) ..... To believe that the only true God is the Father alone, not Jesus, is to attain life eternal and salvation come Judgment Day..... (Report) Reply
