Praise the Savior, Now and Ever (Trinity Hymnal #243)

1 Praise the Savior now and ever;
praise him, all beneath the skies;
prostrate lying, suff’ring, dying
on the cross, a sacrifice.
Vict’ry gaining, life obtaining,
now in glory he doth rise.

2 Man’s work faileth, Christ’s availeth;
he is all our righteousness;
he, our Savior, has forever
set us free from dire distress.
Through his merit we inherit
light and peace and happiness.

3 Sin’s bonds severed, we’re delivered;
Christ has bruised the serpent’s head;
death no longer is the stronger;
hell itself is captive led.
Christ has risen from death’s prison;
o’er the tomb he light has shed.

4 For his favor, praise for ever
unto God the Father sing;
praise the Savior, praise him ever,
Son of God, our Lord and King.
Praise the Spirit; through Christ’s merit
he doth us salvation bring.

One thought on “When Traditions Parade as God’s Word – CRC Sunday Sermon

  1. I have been told I am very quiet.
    Do not engage much in conversations.
    It seems I have been labeled a snob.
    Yet I am not.
    I hear what comes out of peoples mouths and it shows their hearts.

    I pray that the words that come out of my mouth would be truth. And would cause us to be lights in this dark world.

    People say actions speak louder than words. Actions just blind us, distract us to what others are saying.

    Words say volumes and volumes.

    I was in a slight mud puddle the last couple of days…because I was being distracted.
    Now I’m right as rain. And funny here is the rain.
