Christ My Song - 1092
Jesus Christ, the Shepherd True - Light and Love
(Hannah K. Burlingham/Johannes Thomas Rüegg)
Light and Love.
2. God in mercy sent his Son
to a world by sin undone;
Jesus Christ was crucified;
'twas for sinners Jesus died.
3. O! the glory of the grace
shining in the Saviour's face;
telling sinners from above,
God is light and God is love.
4. Sin and death no more shall reign,
Jesus died and lives again;
in the glory's highest height,
see him, God's supreme delight!
5. All who in his name believe,
life, eternal life, receive;
Lord of all is Jesus now,
every knee to him must bow.
6. Christ the Lord will come again,
he who suffered once will reign;
every tongue at last shall own,
"Worthy is the Lamb" alone.
Hannah K. Burlingham, Wayside Songs, 1901, 180-181.
