Tom and his organist friend play this wonderful song, Jesus Paid it All. As we approach this time when Christians remember afresh what Jesus did for us, I hope  this is a blessing to you. Our son, Will, reminded me of these words taken from the text. The spirit of the music drives the meaning of the words home.

When from my dying bed
My ransomed soul shall rise,
“Jesus died my soul to save,”
Shall rend the vaulted skies.

And when before the throne
I stand in Him complete,
I’ll lay my trophies down,
All down at Jesus’ feet.

Salvation Completed!

emptytombSick of what passes for religious broadcasting and so-called preaching these days? Every year, I post this sermon from 1937. 20 minutes of lightening bolts of Gospel truth on the FINISHED work of Jesus Christ on the Cross by Dr. Walter A. Maier.

I can hear the modern church growth types now. “Ewww, he’s yelling. His delivery style is off-putting. He’s not using enough pop culture references or ice-breaking jokes.” Yes, this is called preaching, the kind that is the power of God unto salvation. Here is “Salvation Completed!” from back when real, muscular preaching was not a rare thing. Enjoy!

Drop, Drop Slow Tears

DROP, drop, slow tears,
And bathe those beauteous feet
Which brought from Heaven
The news and Prince of Peace:
Cease not, wet eyes,
His mercy to entreat;
To cry for vengeance
Sin doth never cease.
In your deep floods
Drown all my faults and fears;
Nor let His eye
See sin, but through my tears.
