John Newton Sunday Quote & Hymn!

Newton Quote!

“My strength is perfect weakness and all I have is sin. In short, I must sit down in despair, if I did not believe (the apostle, I think, allows me to be confident) that he who has begun a good work in me will perform it until the day of Jesus Christ" (Philippians 1:6)

(Letters intended for a Sequel to Cardiphonia,
‘To the Rev. Dr….,Letter 11)

Newton Hymn!

“Let me Dwell on Golgatha”

Let me dwell on Golgatha,
Weep and love my life away!
While I see Him on the tree
Weep and bleed, and die for me!

That dear blood, for sinners spilt,
Shows my sin in all its guilt:
Ah, my soul, He bore thy load,
Thou hast slain the Lamb of GOD.

Hark! His dying words, “Forgive,
Father, let this sinner live;
Sinner, wipe thy tears away’
I thy ransom freely pay.”

While I hear this grace revealed,
And obtain a pardon sealed;
All my soft affections move,
Wakened by the force of love.

Farewell world, thy gold is dross,
Now I see the bleeding cross;
Jesus died to set me free
From the law, and sin, and thee!

He has dearly bought my soul
Lord, accept, and claim the whole!
To Thy will I all resign,
Now, no more my own, but Thine!
