Title: Great Is The Gospel

Date: 29/07/2009 (Other)

Speaker: Congregation

Bible Reference: Hymn Singing

Great is the gospel of our glorious God,
Where mercy met the anger of Godís rod;
A penalty was paid and pardon bought,
And sinners lost at last to him were brought:

O let the praises of my heart be Thine,
For Christ has died that I may call him mine,
That I may sing with those who dwell above,
Adoring, praising Jesus, King of love.

Great is the mystery of godliness,
Great is the work of Godís own holiness;
It moves my soul, and causes me to long
For greater joys than to the earth belong:

The spirit vindicated Christ our Lord,
And angels sang with joy and sweet accord;
And nations heard, a dark world flamed with light-
When Jesus rose in glory and in might:
