HYMNs OF PRAISE
7:30 a.m. 11:00 a.m.
DOWN AT THE CROSS AT THE CROSS
Verse I Verse I
Down at the cross where my Savior died, Alas! And did my Savior bleed?
Down where for cleansing from sin I cried, And did my Sov’reign die?
There to my heart was the blood applied, Would He devote that sacred head
Singin’ Glory to His name For such a One as I?

Chorus Chorus
I’m singin’ Glory to His name, Precious name, At the cross, at the cross, where I first saw the light
Glory to His name, Precious name, And the burden of my heart rolled away,
There to my heart was the blood applied, It was there by faith I received my sight,
Singin’ Glory to His name And now I am happy all the day!

Verse II Verse II
I am so wondrously saved from sin, Was it for crimes that I have done
Jesus so sweetly abides within, He groaned upon the tree?
There at the cross where He took me in, Amazing pity, Grace unknown,
Singin’ Glory to His name And love beyond degree.
Repeat Chorus (Repeat chorus)

Verse III
Verse III
Oh, precious fountain that saves from sin,
Well might the sun in darkness hide
I am so glad I have entered in,
And shut His glories in,
There Jesus saves me and keeps me clean,
When Christ the mighty Maker
Singin’ Glory to His name
Died for man the creature’s sin
Repeat Chorus
(Repeat chorus)
Verse IV
Verse IV
Come to this fountain so rich and sweet,
But drops of grief can ne’er repay
Cast thy poor soul at the Savior’s feet,
The debt of love I owe,
Plunge in today, and be made complete
Here, Lord I give myself away
Singin’ Glory to His name
‘Tis all that I can do!
Repeat Chorus
(Repeat chorus)

The next day John again was standing with two
of his disciples, 36 and as he watched Jesus walk
by, he exclaimed, “Look, here is the Lamb of
God!” 37 The two disciples heard him say this,
and they followed Jesus. 38 When Jesus turned
and saw them following, he said to them, “What
are you looking for?” They said to him, “Rabbi”
(which translated means Teacher), “where are
you staying?” 39 He said to them, “Come and
see.” They came and saw where he was staying,
and they remained with him that day. It was
about four o’clock in the afternoon. 40 One of the

the results of a Redeemed LifE


SHARE YOUR SURPLUS
“As a matter of equality, your surplus should supply their needs.”
(II Corinthians 8:14)

Most early Christians embraced neither radical poverty nor common


ownership of possessions. Most Christians then, lived as most
Christians do now, working for a living and owning possessions. Some
Christians were rich, some were middle-class and some were poor.

Nevertheless, there was a great deal of emphasis on sharing in the


early church. One of Paul’s major projects was to take up a collection
among the gentle churches of Greece to help the Jewish Church
of Jerusalem (I Cor. 16:1-4; Romans 15:25-28; Acts 24:17). The
collection was necessary because Christians in Jerusalem were in
poverty, but it was also a demonstration of the unity of the church.

Chapter 8 in Paul’s appeal to the Christians of Corinth, contributes


generously to this collection. Paul holds up the example of what
Jesus did for them, “Becoming poor for your sake” (verse 9). Our
generosity is our response to God’s generosity to us in Christ; our
generosity is a part of our imitation of Christ. Paul did not ask the
Corinthians to give up everything they own, but to share from what
they have, in order to achieve some degree of equality between those
who have more and those who have less (verse 12:15). One Christian
should not have a surplus while another Christian lives in want.

Your Friends in Service,
