TITLE: OH IT’S GRAND TO BE A CHRISTIAN

Oh, it’s grand to be a Christian
To walk in the light of God’s dear Word
To have a joy that is unspeakable
To delight in knowing Christ as Lord

To cherish all we have in Jesus
Riches that fade not away with time
But which grow sweeter day by day
In a delight that is sublime

To know that in the quiet hours
God imparts His wondrous grace
To know that in a coming day
We’ll see our Saviour face to face!

His Hand that is so mighty to save
It lifts us up in time of need
He gives us pleasures evermore
When we wait at Jesus’ feet

He prepares the path before us
What doth hinder, He casts aside
He is making preparation
Christ shall come back for His bride

He has purchased my redemption
On that Cross at Calvary
Henceforth we should live for Jesus
Now and till eternity

Oh the glory of Salvation
That our birth is from above
That our God has condescended
To give us life through His shed blood

He doth let and who shall hinder
The gates of hell shall not prevail
Christ shall snatch away His bought ones
Then He will remove the veil

Oh dear brother and dear sister
Look to Him, He our sins did bare
Take that glorious gospel with you
Spread those tidings everywhere.

Days are quickly fleeting by us
Souls are sinking to Satan’s domain
Let us hold His banner before us
Beseeching them in Jesus name

Look to Jesus ere the evening
Darkness comes then too late
Tell them it is written
God’s Word says, “Behold, today”

If you hear His voice still speaking
Harden not your hearts we’re told
But look to Christ in simple faith
And be a sheep safe in the fold.
