Thou Who Wast Rich

This week we will sing again and old hymn in a new setting from Arkansas native, Treva Blomquist. Reflect on the beauty of these lyrics and take time to listen to the recording below as you prepare to gather in worship this Lord’s Day.

Thou Who Was Rich
Words Frank Houghton, Music: Treva Blomquist, CCL# 11359088

Thou who was rich beyond all splendor,
All for love’s sake became poor
Throne surrendered, for a manger,
Sapphire paved courts, for a stable floor

Thou who art God beyond all praising,
All for loves sake became man
Stooping so low, but sinners raising,
Heavenward by Thine eternal plan

Thou who art Love beyond all telling,
Savior, we crown You the King
Emmanuel within us dwelling,
Make us into what You’d have us be

Thou who art Love beyond all telling,
Nothing in my hands I bring
All that I am, I ask, be melting,
Make me into what You’d have me be
