Hymns of the Past – Absent from Flesh!

John 8:36 NKJV — “Therefore if the Son makes you free, you shall be free indeed.”
Glorious thoughts! Thank you, Lauren, for bringing us this hymn!

Biblical Beginnings

After witnessing some grievous sins this morning prior to fellowshipping, my heart is heavy, beloved brethren. One of the tremendous differences I see within my own self since God saved me by His grace alone is the desire to be absent from the flesh! Particularly this is true when sin is front and center. This hymn was such a beautiful encouragement to me today. I pray this blesses you all as well, and as always be good Berean’s and study to show yourselves approved.

Absent from flesh! O blissful thought!

What unknown joys this moment brings!

Freed from the mischiefs sin has brought,

From pains, and fears, and all their springs.

Absent from flesh! illustrious day!

Surprising scene! triumphant stroke

See, Gracious God, Before Thy Throne

A wonderful hymn that teaches us how to pray in this time of need.

’Tis on Thy sovereign grace alone,
Our humble hopes depend.

Tremendous judgments from Thy hand,
Thy dreadful power display:
Yet mercy spares this guilty land,
And yet we live to pray.

Great God, and why this nation spare,
Ungrateful as we are?
O be these awful warnings heard,
While mercy cries, “Forebear.”

What numerous crimes increasing rise,
Where Satan shows his smile?
What land so favored of the skies,
And yet what land so vile?

How changed, alas! are truths divine,
For error, guilt and shame!
What impious numbers, bold in sin,
Disgrace the Christian name!

O bid us turn, almighty Lord,
By Thy resistless grace;
Then shall our hearts obey Thy word,
And humbly seek Thy face.

Then should insulting foes invade,
We shall not sink in fear;
Secure of never failing aid,
If God, our God, is near.
