    Psalms, Hymns and Songs from the Spirit....

    I would ask that we post just a verse or two of our favorite Psalm, or a stanza or verse or chorus from our favorite songs, fulfilling the admonishment to....

    "speak to one another with psalms, hymns, and songs from the Spirit. Sing and make music from your heart to the Lord" (from Eph 5:19 NIV)


    Search me, O God, and know my heart today,
    Try me, O Savior, know my thoughts, I pray;
    See if there be some wicked way in me;
    Cleanse me from every sin, and set me free.

    PLEASE no debate or nonsense, OK?

    1 Tim 2:5 For there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus.

    Blessed are the poor in spirit,
    For theirs is the kingdom of heaven.
    Blessed are those who mourn,
    For they shall be comforted.
    Blessed are the meek,
    For they shall inherit the earth.
    Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness,
    For they shall be filled.
    Blessed are the merciful,
    For they shall obtain mercy.
    Blessed are the pure in heart,
    For they shall see God.
    Blessed are the peacemakers,
    For they shall be called sons of God.
    Blessed are those who are persecuted for righteousness’ sake,
    For theirs is the kingdom of heaven.
    Blessed are you when they revile and persecute you, and say all kinds of evil against you falsely for My sake. Rejoice and be exceedingly glad, for great is your reward in heaven.
    Enter the Church and wash away your sins. For here there is a hospital and not a court of law. Do not be ashamed to enter the Church; be ashamed when you sin, but not when you repent. – St. John Chrysostom

    I recommend you do not try too hard and ...research as little as possible. Such weighty things give me a headache. - Shunyadragon, Baha'i apologist

    So long, I searched for life's meaning-
    enslaved by the world and my greed-
    Then the door of my prison was opened by love-
    for the ransom was paid-
    I was free!

    I'm free from the fear of tomorrow-
    I'm free from the guilt of my past-
    I've traded my shackles for a glorious song-
    I'm free- Praise the Lord, free at last!

    1 Tim 2:5 For there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus.

    Deep within my heart's a melody,
    Jesus whispers sweet and low,
    'Fear not, I am with thee,
    Peace be still',
    In all of life's ebb and flow.

    Jesus, Jesus, Jesus,
    Sweetest name I know
    Fills my every longing (in my heart),
    He keeps me singing as I go.

    One of my favorite psalms is Psalm 90



    90 Lord, thou hast been our dwelling place in all generations.

    2 Before the mountains were brought forth, or ever thou hadst formed the earth and the world, even from everlasting to everlasting, thou art God.

    3 Thou turnest man to destruction; and sayest, Return, ye children of men.

    4 For a thousand years in thy sight are but as yesterday when it is past, and as a watch in the night.

    5 Thou carriest them away as with a flood; they are as a sleep: in the morning they are like grass which groweth up.

    6 In the morning it flourisheth, and groweth up; in the evening it is cut down, and withereth.

    7 For we are consumed by thine anger, and by thy wrath are we troubled.

    8 Thou hast set our iniquities before thee, our secret sins in the light of thy countenance.

    9 For all our days are passed away in thy wrath: we spend our years as a tale that is told.

    10 The days of our years are threescore years and ten; and if by reason of strength they be fourscore years, yet is their strength labour and sorrow; for it is soon cut off, and we fly away.

    11 Who knoweth the power of thine anger? even according to thy fear, so is thy wrath.

    12 So teach us to number our days, that we may apply our hearts unto wisdom.

    13 Return, O Lord, how long? and let it repent thee concerning thy servants.

    14 O satisfy us early with thy mercy; that we may rejoice and be glad all our days.

    15 Make us glad according to the days wherein thou hast afflicted us, and the years wherein we have seen evil.

    16 Let thy work appear unto thy servants, and thy glory unto their children.

    17 And let the beauty of the Lord our God be upon us: and establish thou the work of our hands upon us; yea, the work of our hands establish thou it.

    My two favorite stanzas:

    Oh, come, oh, come, Emmanuel,
    And ransom captive Israel,
    That mourns in lonely exile here
    Until the Son of God appear.
    Rejoice! Rejoice! Emmanuel
    Shall come to you, O Israel!

    Oh, come, our Dayspring from on high,
    And cheer us by your drawing nigh,
    Disperse the gloomy clouds of night,
    And death's dark shadows put to flight.
    Rejoice! Rejoice! Emmanuel
    Shall come to you, O Israel!
    "For I desire mercy, not sacrifice, and acknowledgment of God rather than burnt offerings." Hosea 6:6

    My time to be on TWeb is unpredictable. It may take a few days for me to see your post and respond.

    This hymn never fails to bring me to tears....

    When peace, like a river, attendeth my way,
    when sorrows like sea billows roll;
    whatever my lot, thou hast taught me to say,
    It is well, it is well with my soul.

    Refrain:
    It is well with my soul,
    it is well, it is well with my soul.

    Though Satan should buffet, though trials should come,
    let this blest assurance control,
    that Christ has regarded my helpless estate,
    and hath shed his own blood for my soul.
    (Refrain)

    My sin, oh, the bliss of this glorious thought!
    My sin, not in part but the whole,
    is nailed to the cross, and I bear it no more,
    praise the Lord, praise the Lord, O my soul!
