We Have Seen His Glory: Part 8, Thank Him
-Roy Lessin, Meeting in the Meadow
Thanks be to God for His indescribable gift! 2 Corinthians 9:15 NIV
Years ago a famous hymn writer, Charles Wesley, looked with the eyes of faith upon the cross where Jesus died, and in response, His thankful heart wrote these words:
“And can it be that I should gain an interest in the Savior's blood?
Died He for me, who caused
His pain--for me, who Him to death pursued?
Amazing love! How can it be that Thou, my God, shouldst die for me?”
Other verses followed and
when he came to the chorus his gratitude reached this crescendo: “Long my
imprisoned spirit lay Fast bound in sin and nature's night;
Thine eye diffused a quickening ray,--I woke, the dungeon flamed with light;
my chains fell off, my heart was free, I rose, went forth, and followed Thee.”
Every heart that touches Jesus Christ is never the same. It is a heart that is filled with an endless stream of thankfulness; it is a heart that has been immersed in the river of divine love; and it is a heart that flows with a thousand expressions of joy.
