The Gospel to me is simply irresistible.

Being the man I am, being full of lust and pride and envy and malice and hatred and false good, and all accumulated and exaggerated misery – to me the Gospel of the grace of God, and the Redemption of Christ, and the regeneration and sanctification of the Holy Ghost, that Gospel is to me simply irresistible, and I cannot understand why it is not equally irresistible to every mortal man born of woman.



Work, for the Day is coming!

Made for the saints of light;
Off with the garments dreary,
On with the armor bright:
Soon will the strife be ended,
Soon all our toils below;
Not to the dark we’re tending,
But to the Day we go.

Work, then, the Day is coming!
No time for the sighing now!
Harps for the hands once drooping,
Wreaths for the victor’s brow,
Now morning Light is breaking,
Soon will the Day appear;
Night shades appal no longer,
Jesus, or Lord, is near!

new tune > lookit that

“lookit that”, so yeah – this was actually before “oh my my” (posted some hours ago) by some hours, but I’ve made an executive decision to post more rather than hoard. To share is good – right? So I am sharing. I mean, if you think about it, in the grand scheme of things, throughout the history of music, starting with the first percussive note banged out by human kind, using music to celebrate the discovery of fire… well they had to discover fire – then discover a party or worship – or both, which required music, which also needed to be discovered…. I think that was the order…anyway – if you trace all of the people involved in this dance of life contributing music that is soon forgotten – the tune you now listen to might be one such number. You might think of it as an audio form of a gummy bear. It isn’t even 2 minutes long. But you know what? I hope you simply enjoy it. Roll it around in your cranium. Maybe it will inspire you to go write something…or just smile. And you know what? If you smile – that is good enough for me.

lookit that

oh yeah baby catching everything like a bowl
oh yeah baby trying just to fill the hole

There’s not a craving in the mind

Thou dost not meet and still;
There’s not a wish the heart can have
Which Thou dost not fulfill.

All things that have been, all that are,
All things that can be dreamed,
All possible creations made,
Kept faithful, or redeemed;-

All these may draw upon Thy power,
Thy mercy may command,
And still outflows Thy silent sea
Immutable and grand

O little heart of mine shall pain
Or sorrow make thee moan,
When all this God is all for thee,
A Father all thine own?
