The Old Rugged Cross, by Rev.Geo.Bennard

On a hill far away stood an old rugged cross the emblem of suffering and shame

And I love that old cross where the dearest and best For a word of lost sinners was slain

So I’ll cherish the old rugged cross till my trophies at last I lay down
I will cling to the old rugged cross and exchange it some day for a crown

To the old rugged cross I will ever be true it’s shame and reproach gladly bear

Then he’ll call me some day to my home far away where his glory forever I’ll share

So I’ll cherish the old rugged cross till my trophies at last I lay down
I will cling to the old rugged cross and exchange it some day for a crown

Hello Friends

Most of you have seen the movie The Wizard of Oz.  A favorite part is when Dorothy opens up the door and leaves her black and white world, and steps into the bright and beautiful magic of Technicolor.

Even with all the special effects we see in today’s movies, nothing tops this simple transition, at least in this man’s eyes.  The reason I find it so powerful is because it represents  what I believe death to be like for those who believe.  Stepping from this life into the next. It will be beyond the grandest that Hollywood has to offer.  The word ‘AWESOME’ will finally be justified.

My grandma used to sing this old song written by John Fearis and Jessie Pounds, called Beautiful Isle of Somewhere.  

God bless you friends, Rick

C                                      G7   
Somewhere the sun is shining 
                                            C
Somewhere the songbirds dwell
                                       G7
Hush then your sad repining 
D7                            G7 
God lives and all is well

                       C          
Somewhere somewhere 
Am                      G7 
Beautiful isle of somewhere
C                      G7                 C7    F  
Land of the truth where we live anew 
C                          G7      C
Beautiful isle of some-where

                                         G7
Somewhere the load is lifted 
                               C
Close by an open gate
                                              G7
Somewhere the clouds are rifted 
D7                                   G7                      
Somewhere the angels wait

          C          
Somewhere somewhere 
Am                       G7 
Beautiful isle of somewhere
C                     G7                   C7    F  
Land of the truth where we live anew 
C                          G7       C
Beautiful isle of some-where


I believe . . . do you?

His Eye Is On The Sparrow: Civilla Martin

April 19th, 2015 2 comments


“Early in the spring of 1905, my husband and I were sojourning in El mira, New York. We contracted a deep friendship for a couple by the name of Mr. and Mrs. Doolittle—true saints of God. Mrs. Doolittle had been bedridden for nigh twenty years. Her husband was an incurable cripple who had to propel himself to and from his business in a wheel chair. Despite their afflictions, they lived happy Christian lives, bringing inspiration and comfort to all who knew them. One day while we were visiting with the Doolittles, my husband commented on their bright hopefulness and asked them for the secret of it. Mrs. Doolittle’s reply was simple: “His eye is on the sparrow, and I know He watches me.” The beauty of this simple ex­pression of boundless faith gripped the hearts and fired the imagination of Dr. Martin and me. The hymn “His Eye Is on the Sparrow” was the out­come of that experience.”

Civilla Martin

The next day she mailed the poem to Charles Gabriel, who supplied the music.


Why should I feel discouraged, why should the shadows come,
Why should my heart be lonely, and long for heaven and home,
When Jesus is my portion? My constant friend is He:
His eye is on the sparrow, and I know He watches me;
His eye is on the sparrow, and I know He watches me.

Refrain

I sing because I’m happy,
I sing because I’m free,
For His eye is on the sparrow,
And I know He watches me.

“Let not your heart be troubled,” His tender word I hear,
And resting on His goodness, I lose my doubts and fears;
Though by the path He leadeth, but one step I may see;
His eye is on the sparrow, and I know He watches me;
His eye is on the sparrow, and I know He watches me.

Refrain

Whenever I am tempted, whenever clouds arise,
When songs give place to sighing, when hope within me dies,
I draw the closer to Him, from care He sets me free;
His eye is on the sparrow, and I know He watches me;
His eye is on the sparrow, and I know He watches me.

A Song for All Ages

January 5th, 2014 2 comments

Jesus loves me

This I know.

For the Bible tell me so.

Little ones to him belong,

They are weak but He is strong.

Yes, Jesus loves me.

Yes, Jesus loves me.

Yes, Jesus loves me.

The Bible tells me so.

Jesus Loves Me is a Christian hymn set to words by Anna Bartlett Warner.  The lyrics first appeared as a poem in the context of a novel called Say and Seal, written by Susan Warner and published in 1860.

The tune was added in 1862 by William Batchelder Bradbury  who found the text of “Jesus Loves Me” in this book, in which the words were spoken as a comforting poem to a dying child.

Along with his tune, Bradbury added his own chorus “Yes, Jesus loves me, Yes, Jesus Loves me…” After publication the song became one of the most popular Christian hymns in churches around the world.
