"My Father 'tis of Thee"
My Father 'tis of Thee
I have sweet liberty,
Of Thee I sing;
Since Christ our Savior, died,
Suffered the riven side,
Poured forth salvation's tide,
His praises ring.
Eternal Saviour, Thou!
To Whom all knees shall bow,
Thy name I love.
It is our Father's will,
Thy fame all worlds shall fill,
Thy name all hearts shall thrill--
All names above.
May thy words music be,
And may each heart set free
Let each the message take,
Let all their silence break,
Let all who hear partake--
The sound prolong.
O Christ, lead us to Thee,
Thine shall the glory be,
To Thee we sing:
Long may Thy reign be bright
With justice, love and light,
O shield us by Thy might,
Great Christ, our King!
~Written By W. J. Johnson~
A Note from Cobblestone Road Ministries:
The above poem can be sung to the melody of "My Country, Tis of Thee."
Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ,
which according to his abundant mercy hath begotten us again
unto a lively hope by the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the
dead, To an inheritance incorruptible, and undefiled, and that
fadeth not away, reserved in heaven for you, Who are kept by
the power of God through faith unto salvation ready
to be revealed in the last time.
All we have is because the Father sent the Son to be the Savior of
the world. Jesus, the Christ, died for our sins-- He shed His blood
for us and rose triumphant from the Grave! Oh that we could take
that in. He is everything that we need! Forever we shall praise Him.
He put His Spirit within us-- to abide. Oh what precious thoughts that
this poem brings to our minds.
Giving thanks unto the Father, which hath made us meet to be partakers
of the inheritance of the saints in light: Who hath delivered us from the
power of darkness, and hath translated us into the kingdom of his dear
Son: In whom we have redemption through his blood, even the
forgiveness of sins:
