Hymns of the Week

  • Trinity Hymn 261, What Wondrous Love is This

1) What wondrous love is this, O my soul, O my soul,

what wondrous love is this, O my soul!
What wondrous love is this that caused the Lord of bliss
to bear the dreadful curse for my soul, for my soul;

to bear the dreadful curse for my soul!

2) To God and to the Lamb, I will sing, I will sing,

to God and to the Lamb, I will sing;
to God and to the Lamb, who is the great I AM,
while millions join the theme, I will sing, I will sing,

while millions join the theme, I will sing!

3) And when from death I’m free, I’ll sing on, I’ll sing on,

and when from death I’m free, I’ll sing on;

and when from death I’m free, I’ll sing and joyful be,
and through eternity I’ll sing on, I’ll sing on,

and through eternity I’ll sing on!

  • Trinity Hymnal 264, Jesus, Keep Me Near the Cross

1) Jesus, keep me near the cross, There a precious fountain;
Free to all, a healing stream, Flows from Calv’ry’s mountain.

Refrain:
In the cross, in the cross, Be my glory ever,
Till my raptured soul shall find Rest beyond the river.

2) Near the cross, a trembling soul, Love and mercy found me;
There the Bright and Morning Star, Shed His beams around me. [Refrain]

3) Near the cross! O lamb of God, Bring its scenes before me;
Help me walk from day to day, With its shadow o’er me. [Refrain]

4) Near the cross! I’ll watch and wait, Hoping, trusting ever;
Till I reach the golden strand
