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
This Lord’s Day we will be learning an new hymn, “King of Love.” This is an old hymn paraphrase of Psalm 23, with a new arrangment by the group, ‘I Am They.’ Take time to listen to this hymn as you prepare for the Lord’s Day.
