Whose I Am!
Jesus, Master, whose I am,
Purchased Thine alone to be,
By Thy blood, O spotless Lamb,
Shed so willingly for me.
Let my heart be all Thine own,
Let me live to Thee alone.
Other lords have long held sway;
Now, Thy name alone to bear,
Thy dear voice alone obey,
Is my daily, hourly prayer.
Whom have I in heaven but Thee?
Nothing else my joy can be.
Jesus, Master! I am Thine;
Keep me faithful, keep me near;
Let Thy presence in me shine
All my homeward way to cheer.
Jesus! at Thy feet I fall,
Oh, be Thou my All-in-all.
~Poem By: Frances Ridley Havergal
A Little Note from Cobblestone Road Ministries:
Forasmuch as ye know that ye were not redeemed
with corruptible things, as silver and gold, from your vain
conversation received by tradition from your fathers;
But with the precious blood of Christ, as of a lamb
without blemish and without spot:
Because thou hast been my help, therefore in the
shadow of thy wings will I rejoice.
It is very interesting to read the Christian poems of years ago. Many
Christian hymn writers of the 1800's understood Christian doctrine and
expressed it so beautifully in their writings. "Keep me faithful, keep me
near"...all glory belongs to the Lord. He is the One who keeps us in His
care. We cannot glory in ourselves but in Christ Alone! "Whatever my lot, THOU hast taught me to say...It is well, it is well with my soul."
The Lord teaches us.
Many Christian songwriters today write lyrics about "me" and "I" but the Christian's walk with Jesus is "He" leads us, He guides our steps, He keeps
us. May we give God the glory for all He has done and will do in our lives!
We are instruments in the Lord's hands.
Being confident of this very thing, that he which hath begun
a good work in you will perform it until the day of Jesus Christ:
The Lord Jesus said in John 15:5
I am the vine, ye are the branches: He that abideth in me,
and I in him, the same bringeth forth much fruit:
for without me ye can do nothing.
