Tags: hymn, I Am Resolved, Palmer Hartsough, The Unwavering Resolve of Jonathan Edwards
Not too long ago I read and reviewed The Unwavering Resolve of Jonathan Edwards by Steven Lawson. It is based upon the Resolutions that Edwards tried to live by. I highly recommend the book for any Christian to read and learn from. Today’s hymn choice reminded me of Edwards’ Resolutions and I hope you enjoy it.
Stay faithful and hopeful,

I Am Resolved
By Palmer Hartsough
1. I am resolved no longer to linger, Charmed by the world’s delight; Things that are higher, things that are nobler – These have allured my sight.
(Refrain) I will hasten to Him, Hasten so glad and free. Jesus, Greatest, Highest, I will come to Thee.
2. I am resolved to go the Savior, Leaving my sin and strife. He is the true One; He is the just One; He hath the words of life.
3. I am resolved to follow the Savior, Faithful and true each day. Heed what He sayeth, do what He willeth; He is the Living Way.
4. I am resolved to enter the Kingdom, Leaving the paths of sin. Friends may oppose me, foes may beset me; Still will I enter in.
5. I am resolved, and who will go with me? Come, friends without delay; Taught by the Bible, led by the Spirit, We’ll walk the heav’nly way.
