Scriptural Hymn Lovers

Since I upload most of my articles  a week or two in advance to post automatically (with a few exceptions), I sometimes forget what may be coming up. For those of you that love singing the scriptures, this week I’ve included some hymns I had written. Some of these hymns may be included in our upcoming hymnal. The hymns appearing at Justification by Grace this week have never been seen or sung outside of my immediate family (which, typically goes for all the hymns I have penned that appear on this blog). Keep an eye out for them (not literally, as our friend Eddie Eddings likes to remind us). I pray you are blessed by them.

  1. I am happy to say that you can include me in the group known as “Scriptural Hymn Lovers”!

    I will most certainly be on the lookout for what you post.

    The hymns that I have been privileged to see have been a tremendous blessing and so I look forward to singing the Bible along with you, and the others!

  2. Robert’s first pastoral ministry in 1980 was an inner city work in Spokane. The Lord placed us in a situation where he had to deal with many serious problems of evil within the governing leadership.

    Because we were so overwhelmed with a constant foreboding sense of spiritual oppression and an utter dependence on God’s direction we stopped using our regular hymnbooks and began using only Psalters and singing other songs that were ver batim Scripture. We had an intense desire to flood our hearts and those in our congregations with the cleansing power of God’s holy word, and nothing more.

    Difficult as that time was, it left us with a legacy of memorized Scripture! Today I can hardly quote many Scriptures without singing them!

    Thank you for bringing back these memories!

    “Rejoice in the Lord always, and again I say Rejoice!” la! la!

    • Thank you, sister, for your encouragement. Thank you also for posting “O Wretched Man I Am” on your blog. That one is one of my favorites, which I do find myself singing in early morning devotions.

      Blessings to you and Robert. You are ever in my prayers.
