Thanks to God for Our Redeemer



Thanks to God for Our Redeemer


Thanks to God for my Redeemer,
Thanks for all Thou dost provide!
Thanks for times now but a memory,
Thanks for Jesus by my side!
Thanks for pleasant, balmy springtime,
Thanks for dark and stormy fall!
Thanks for tears by now forgotten,
Thanks for peace within my soul!

Thanks for prayers that Thou hast answered,
Thanks for what Thou dost deny!
Thanks for storms that I have weathered,
Thanks for all Thou dost supply!
Thanks for pain, and thanks for pleasure,
Thanks for comfort in despair!
Thanks for grace that none can measure,
Thanks for love beyond compare!

Thanks for roses by the wayside,
Thanks for thorns their stems contain!
Thanks for home and thanks for fireside,
Thanks for hope, that sweet refrain!
Thanks for joy and thanks for sorrow,
Thanks for heav’nly peace with Thee!
Thanks for hope in the tomorrow,
Thanks through all eternity!

  1. HOLA HERMANA DIOS LE BENDIGA: QUE BELLO EL HIMNO, ME RECUERDA QUE EL SEÑOR SIEMPRE ESTA PRESENTE EN NUESTRA VIDA, EL ES ONMIPRESCENTE, QUE PODEMOS CONFIAR EN EL, EL SIEMPRE ES FIEL, EN LOS MOMENTOS DE ANGUSTIA, EL ESTA TENDIENDONOS SU MANO PARA SACARNOS DEL POZO DE LA DESESPERACION, EN MOMENTOS DE ENFERMEDAD, EL NOS SANA CON SU SANGRE PRECIOSA, LLEVANDOSE TODA ENFERMEDAD EN LA CRUZ, EN LOS MOMENTOS DE ESCASES ECONOMICA, EL ABRE PUERTAS O MANDA A ALGUN FIEL PARA AYUDAR, EL SIEMPRE ESTA, HAY TANTAS COSAS PARA AGRADECERLE, SOBRE TODO LA VIDA ESPIRITUAL, EL PERDON DE NUESTROS PECADOS Y LA VIDA ETERNA, NUESTRA VIDA QUE NO TERMINA EN ESTE MUNDO MALO, LLENO DE ODIO Y DESTRUCCION, NUESTRA VIDA ALLA EN LOS CIELOS EN LA MORADA QUE HABITAREMOS JUNTAMENTE CON NUESTRO SALVADOR. GRACIAS POR ESTE POEMA TAN ALENTADOR. HOY EL SERMON EN NUESTRA CONGREGACION FUE UN LLAMADO A SEGUIR A CRISTO, A PESAR DE LAS CIRCUNSTANCIAS QUE VIVIMOS, A PESAR DE LA ESCASES, A PESAR DE TODA ENFERMEDAD, LA PALABRA NOS LLAMA A SER DISCIPULOS DE EL Y Y QUE NUESTRA VIDA SEA UN FIEL REFLEJO DE CRISTO EN NOSOTROS. ESTAR GOZOSOS EN EL ESPIRITU, AUNQUE ANDEMOS EN EL VALLE DE LAGRIMAS,NO DESMAYEMOS, QUE VIVAMOS EN PAZ, EN PIEDAD Y AMOR FRATERNAL.
