Today in church we heard a message from Ephesians 5:18, Do not get drunk on wine, which leads to debauchery. Instead, be filled with the Spirit. The message was titled, “Living A Spirit Filled Life.” It really made me think about my life and submission to the Lord. It also reminded me of an old hymn. I hope the words are meaningful for you. God bless you as you think about surrendering completely to Him.

Stay faithful and hopeful,

Is Your All on the Altar?

Elisha A. Hoffman, 1839-1929

1.      You have longed for sweet peace, and for faith to increase, And have earnestly, fervently prayed; But you cannot have rest, or be perfectly blest, Until all on the altar is laid.

(Refrain) Is your all on the altar of sacrifice laid? Your heart, does the Spirit control? You can only be blest and have peace and sweet rest, As you yield Him your body and soul.

2.      Would you walk with the Lord in the light of His Word, And have peace and contentment alway? You must do His sweet will to be free from all ill; On the altar your all you lay.

(Refrain)

3.      Oh, we never can know what the Lord will bestow Of the blessings for which we have prayed, Till our body and soul He doth fully control, And our all on the altar is laid.

(Refrain)

4.      Who can tell all the love He will send from above! Oh, how happy our hearts will be made! Oh, what fellowship sweet we shall share at His feet, When our all on the altar is laid!

(Refrain)

 This is a real good hand clapping, toe tapping song! Ideally the words can be projected so that people can have their hands free for clapping. We have sung this with many different instruments playing and at times with just a piano or just a guitar. It is a good song.

I may move the weekly hymn to Sunday’s and put a book review or coffee review on Thursdays. The blog is still developing and I have some changes in mind. I have to catch up on my reviewing responsibilities also. Enjoy the song and have a good day.

Stay faithful and hopeful,

Romans 15:13; Isaiah 66:2

Washed in the Blood of the Lamb

 By Elisha Hoffman (1839-1929)

 1. Have you been to Jesus for the cleansing power? Are you washed in the blood of the Lamb? Are you fully trusting in His grace this hour? Are you washed in the blood of the Lamb?

(Refrain) Are you washed in the blood, in the soul cleansing blood of the Lamb? Are your garments spotless? Are they white as snow? Are you washed in the blood of the Lamb?

 2. Are you walking daily by the Saviour’s side? Are you washed in the blood of the Lamb? Do you rest each moment in the Crucified? Are you washed in the blood of the Lamb?

 (Refrain)

 3. When the Bridegroom cometh, will your robes be white, Pure and white in the blood of the Lamb? Will your souls be ready for the mansions bright And be washed in the blood of the Lamb?

(Refrain)

 4. Lay aside the garments that are stained with sin And be washed in the blood of the Lamb; There’s a fountain flowing for the soul unclean; Oh, be washed in the blood of the Lamb.

 (Refrain)
