Yet another post about the Together for the Gospel Live CD from the 2008 T4G conference. One of the songs I’ve been listening to lately is Come, Thou Fount of Every Blessing, written in 1758 by Robert Robinson, except for the alternate fourth verse which was written by Bob Kauflin. Here’s the fourth verse for your pondering:
Oh that day when freed from sinning I shall see thy lovely face; Full arrayed in blood-washed linen How I’ll sing thy sovereign grace; Come my Lord no longer tarry, Bring thy promises to pass, For I know thy power will keep me Till I’m home with thee at last.
Think of it: Freed from sinning, seeing Jesus face to face, fully dressed in blood-washed linen (that’s a powerful thought!), singing about God’s sovereign grace without which none of this would be possible at all.
Oh to be home with him at last. Until then, listen to the music on this CD and get a sweet foretaste of what worship around the throne of God will be like for ages and ages into eternity. If that doesn’t put a smile on your face and get your blood pumping in your veins, it’s time for some life examination in the light of the gospel.
I don’t know if I’ve mentioned this before, but this album is also available as a MP3 download for $9
