A Hymn to Cry Out to God

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.]

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”)

 

 “I yield, I yield.”

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
ccccc00ccc000
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.

  1. Beautiful song!
    “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.
