"O Jesus, Lord and Savior, I give myself to Thee,
For Thou, in Thine atonement, didst give Thyself for me.
I own no other Master, my heart shall be Thy throne,
My life I give, henceforth to live, O Christ for Thee alone."
Thomas O. Chisholm; "Living for Jesus," 1917
Thomas Chisolm wrote this song over a century ago!
And whilst thee mayest struggle with the language of his day, the message of Living for Jesus is as real and important for us today as it was for him in 1917.
I have been spending some time using a very olde hymn book as a supplement to my morning time in the Bible and with Jesus...and I'm loving it! Worship of our King will lasteth for eternity...and it never groweth olde or becomes outdated. Musical styles may changeth with the culture and the times, but God-focused and directed worship...is everlasting. It's what thee and I were created for!
Tell us how worship songs affect you!
Give us a song, or a line from a song that's been stuck in your head and heart lately...and tell us how it stirs you to worship Jesus.
May your day...and life... be filled with songs to the King of kings!
