In the Hours

Thou the Father’s best beloved,
Thou the throned and sceptered King,
Who but Thee should we adoring,
All our prayers and praises bring?
So blessed are we Savior Lord in loving thee
So blessed are we Savior Lord in loving thee
 

Words by Helen L. Parmelee, altered by Kevin Twit. Verse 5, In the Hours

The task of the preacher is…

…to show the listener his wretchedness before Almighty God and to show the listener the wonderful sufficiency of Jesus Christ as his only Savior.

I do not remember the source, but I heard it once said that for many people the problem is not showing them Jesus as Savior but showing them of their own condemnation because of their sin, and thus their need for a Savior.

One of my favorite hymns encapsulates these twin truths well.  The hymn is With Melting Heart and Weeping Eyes, performed by Red Mountain Church.

 unbelief

With melting heart and weeping eyes,
My guilty soul for mercy cries;
What shall I do, or whither flee,
To rid the vengeance due of me?
To rid the vengeance due of me?
 
Till late I saw no danger nigh,
I lived at ease, nor feared to die;
Wrapped up in self-conceit and pride,
“I shall have peace at last,” I cried.
“I shall have peace at last,” I cried.
 
But when great God Thy light divine,
Had shone on this dark soul of mine,
Then I beheld with trembling awe,
The terrors of Thy holy law.
The terrors of Thy holy law.
 
Should vengence still my soul pursue,
Death and destruction are my due;
Yet mercy can my guilt forgive,
And bid this dying sinner live.
And bid this dying sinner live.
 
Does not Thy sacred word proclaim,
Salvation free in Jesus’ name?
To Him I look and humbly cry,
“Lord, save a wretch condemned to die!”
“Lord, save a wretch condemned to die!”
