Marty at Outside Preaching EventFriday is for Heart Songs

[From the archives.  

May it draw your heart to the deepest riches
of the cross and the gospel.]

 “I yield, I yield.”

Suggested by a sermon by Charles H. Spurgeon on

Jeremiah 31:3
“With loving-kindness I have drawn thee.”


(Sing to the tune of the Sovereign Grace version of “Before the Throne”)

Thy law is perfect and lights the path
My shadowed soul refused to see
Blind and naked and unashamed
I ran from Thee and from Thy plan
My wandering heart tasted the fruit
That sin had purchased at great cost
But still I drifted far from Thee
From Thee who loved and cared for me
From Thee who loved and cared for me

But then I saw Thy thorn scarred brow
I gazed upon Thy nail pierced hands
I fixed my eyes upon Thy feet
And then my soul cried out to Thee
“I yield. I yield, my Lord to Thee
Thy love has won my humbled heart.”
And now I long to love Thee more
Who loved and bled and rose for me.
Who loved and bled and rose for me.
