The Cross and The Spirit, pt. 4 (04-11-21)


Measure Me!

Words: Betty Kent
Music: Bob Brenneman

No matter what the sorrow is,
No matter what the pain,
I welcome You into my heart
To measure me within.

How wonderful, my Lord, You are;
How gracious is Your name;
E’en when Your measure seems quite hard
I still desire Your gain.

You raise the level higher still,
My prayer is to endure:
I want what You desire until
I see Your life mature.

When You become a rest in me
And reign as King within,
No matter what the pain, it must
Reveal Yourself therein.

Blessed Assurance

Words: Fanny Crosby
Music: Phoebe Knapp

Blessed assurance, Jesus is mine;
Oh, what a foretaste of glory divine!
Heir of salvation, purchase of God,
Born of His Spirit, washed in His blood.

This is my story, this is my song,
Praising my Savior all the day long;
This is my story, this is my song,
Praising my Savior all the day long.

Perfect submission, perfect delight,
Visions of rapture now burst on my sight;
Angels descending, bring from above
Echoes of mercy, whispers of love.

Perfect submission, all is at rest,
I, in my Savior, am happy and blest;
Watching and waiting, looking above,
Filled with His goodness, lost in His love.

19 For through the law I died to the law, so that I might live to God. 20 I have been crucified with Christ. It is no longer I who live, but Christ who lives in me. And the life I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me.
