For by grace you have been saved through faith, and this not of yourselves it is the gift of God, not of works, so that no one can boast. Ephesians 2:8-9

Sunday Hymn

Powerful, wonderful hymn, we need to sing more often.

How Sweet and Awesome is the The Place

Isaac Watts


VERSE 1 
How sweet and aweful is the place 
With Christ within the doors 
While everlasting love displays 
The choicest of her stores 

VERSE 2 
While all our hearts and all our songs 
Join to admire the feast 
Each of us cry with thankful tongues 
“Lord, why was I a guest?” 

VERSE 3 
“Why was I made to hear Thy voice 
And enter while there's room 
When thousands make a wretched choice 
And rather starve than come?” 

VERSE 4 
’Twas the same love that spread the feast 
That sweetly drew us in 
Else we had still refused to taste 
And perished in our sin 

VERSE 5 
Pity the nations, O our God 
Constrain the earth to come 
Send Thy victorious Word abroad 
And bring the strangers home 

VERSE 6 
We long to see Thy churches full 
That all the chosen race 
May with one voice and heart and soul 
Sing Thy redeeming grace
