Today I decided I'd participate in Muddy Shoes' "Top Ten" day! It's always something that is open to other bloggers to take and share on their own blogs, which I thought was fun, but I haven't posted on the tenth of a month since it started. This month's conveniently worked nicely as an excuse, because I was already planning to do a five favorite hymns post after asking some of you to answer that question in a tag last summer ;). And so, here are 10 of my favorite hymns/Christian songs (which is by no means an inclusive list), and my favorite verses/lines from that song :)!
Come Thou Fount of Every Blessing
"Here I raise my Ebenezer
Here there by Thy great help I've come
And I hope, by Thy good pleasure
Safely to arrive at home
Jesus sought me when a stranger
Wandering from the fold of God
He, to rescue me from danger
Interposed His precious blood."
Oh To Be Like Thee
"O to be like Thee! full of compassion,
Loving, forgiving, tender and kind,
Helping the helpless, cheering the fainting,
Seeking the wand’ring sinners to find."
O Love That Will Not Let Me Go
Just Be Held
"When you're tired of fighting, and chained by your control; there is freedom in surrender, lay it down and let it go."
"Oh, the love that drew salvation's plan! Oh the grace that brough it down to man!
Oh the might gulf that God did span, at Calvary!"
Behold the Lamb
"And so with thankfulness and faith
We rise to respond: and to remember
Our call to follow in the steps of Christ
As His body here on earth.
As we share in His suffering,
We proclaim: Christ will come again!
And we’ll join in the feast of heaven
Around the table of the King."
"Living, He loved me
Dying, He saved me
Buried, He carried my sins far away
Rising, He justified freely forever
One day He's coming
Oh glorious day, oh glorious day."
Be Thou My Vision
|"Be Thou my vision, O Lord of my heart;|
Naught be all else to me, save that Thou art;
Thou my best thought, by day or by night;
Waking or sleeping, Thy presence my light."
"Blessed assurance, Jesus is mine
O what a foretaste of glory divine
Heir of salvation, purchase of God
Born of His Spirit, washed in His blood
Perfect submission, all is at rest
I in my Savior am happy and blessed
Watching and waiting, looking above
Filled with His goodness, lost in His love."
It's so hard to just choose 10, because there are so many other wonderful songs! But I believe that these are the ones that I find running in my head most often... along with at least five more, of course... haha! Which of these is your favorite? Or do you have another favorite that isn't on this list :)?
Rejoicing in Hope,
