"Common Ground": my little corner of the blogosphere where I talk (a lot-wink) about the things that matter most to me: My relationship with my Lord & Savior, Jesus Christ, homeschooling, adoption, homemaking, parenting, "spousing." (yeah, yeah....I know that's not a word.....I made it up-it’s my blog-I can do things like that! Ha!)

Since my life isn’t all that different from yours, hopefully we can find some COMMON GROUND & learn from each other. Please share your thoughts!

Through the Lords’s mercies we are not consumed, Because His compassions fail not.

They are new every morning; Great is Your faithfulness!
Lam. 3: 22 & 23

Thursdays Before the Throne

For my hubby-I think this is perhaps his favorite hymn!
(or at least I KNOW it’s ONE of them!!!)

Hark! sinner, hark! we have tidings so true,
Tidings of pardon and blessings for you!
God in His word says that Christ on the tree,
Died for guilty sinners,
and "Salvation is free."

Guilty you are, yet you know very well
Jesus has suffered to save you from hell;
Tho' now condemned, justified you may be,
Jesus paid the ransom,
and "Salvation is free."

Trust not in "doing," it cannot avail.
Good resolutions and works can but fail;
"Grace, grace alone," is the saved sinner's plea,
"Not of works,"
the Scriptures say, "Salvation is free."

Trust not in feelings, your heart is depraved.
Trust only Jesus, who now lives to save;
Tears of repentance, tho' real they may be,
Ne'er can purchase heaven, for "Salvation is free."

Hear the news, sinner, free! free! free!
Why not believe it?
'Tis good news for thee.
Jesus the Just One has died on the tree,
Died for guilty sinners, and "Salvation is free."

This was a favourite hymn of my boyfriend's mother, who is now very ill and expected to pass away at any time. I am unfamiliar with it and looking for the tune so it can be sung at her funeral. This is rather urgent as the family is gathered around her side and she has been asleep since yesterday. Can you help me?

I hope you get this answer-because I can't figure out how to comment on your blogs.

I have searched high & low on the Internet for this sheet music, but I have had no luck finding it. It is in our church hymnal, which is for sale on Amazon.

I don't know how to put a link in my comments, but here is the link you could copy & paste:


Hope you get this!
