In Hymn Of Praise......



There Is A green Hill Far Away
Words by: Cecil Frances Alexander 1818-1895
Music by: John H. Gower 1855-1922
***
There is a green hill far away without a city wall,
Where the dear Lord was crucified, Who died to save us all.
*
We may not know, we cannot tell, What pains he had to bear,
But we believe it was for us he hung and suffered there.
*
There was no other good enough to pay the price for sin.
He only could unlocks the gate of heav'n and let us in.
*
Oh dearly, dearly has he loved! And we must love him too,
And trust in his redeeming blood, and try his works to do.
***
Once again this beautiful arrangement of this hymn is done by


*



Have a restful Sabbath Day.

Amen! I have not been on the blogs for a while; but I really like your new banner. I will have to change all mine, once this "house" business gets settled.
Blessings,

Gonna sound silly but I used to sing this song to myself while swinging on our swingset way back in the day. Something about the rhythm and the timing of the swing just fit. Thanks for the memory.
