April Monthly Melody | 2021

     Happy first day of April, friends!  This coming Sunday is Resurrection Sunday.  It is a special day of remembering the fact that Jesus died for us and then conquered death when He rose victorious from the grave!  That is something worthy of celebrating, not just on Resurrection Sunday, but every day.

     Since this is the month of Resurrection Sunday, I chose a special new hymn for us to learn as our Monthly Melody.  It is a hymn that speaks of what Jesus has done for us and of what we should do for Him out of hearts of gratitude. 

     Jesus has done so much for us in giving us His life and offering us forgiveness of sins and an eternal home in Heaven with Him.  In return, He asks us to give Him our lives so that He can create something beautiful out of them for His glory!  

He is not here: for he is risen, as he said. Come, see the place where the Lord lay.

Matthew 28:6

     I won’t keep you waiting any longer!  Go ahead and take a minute to read through the words of this hymn and listen to the video.  And don’t just listen today!  I’ll be listening throughout the month to learn the words and have a new hymn to sing and meditate on.  Care to join me?

Something For Thee

Savior, Thy dying love
Thou gavest me,
Nor should I aught withhold,
Dear Lord, from Thee:
In love my soul would bow,
My heart fulfill its vow,
Some off’ring bring Thee now,
Something for Thee.

At the blest mercy seat,
Pleading for me,
My feeble faith looks up,
Jesus, to Thee:
Help me the cross to bear,
Thy wondrous love declare,
Some song to raise, or pray’r,
Something for Thee.

Give me a faithful heart,
Likeness to Thee,
That each departing day
Henceforth may see
Some work of love begun,
Some deed of kindness done,
Some wand’rer sought and won,
Something for Thee.

All that I am and have,
Thy gifts so free,
In joy, in grief, thro’ life,
Dear Lord, for Thee!
And when Thy face I see,
My ransom’d soul shall be,
Thro’ all eternity,
Something for Thee.
