I thought it would be nice to put up regularly on a Sunday one of my stock of Christian hymns http://rhiannonshymns.co.uk/ Many of these were written after helpful messages looking at Bible passages.
People like to frighten, tease,
speculate on mysteries …
all is murky, no-one knows,
each enjoying to suppose …
Mystery of man and God:
come and see the mist removed!
Truth of wonder was unclear,
but when Jesus Christ came here,
Way and Word were both revealed,
nothing complex, half-concealed:
yet so awesome, mind can’t measure
vastness of redemption’s treasure.
Christ in me, and I in him, –
justified, and power within
to live like my Guarantor,
– though I fail, I sin abhor;
– joy and praise for what he’s done,
pressing on to glory won.
Christ: divine and man, so he
could atone and set us free;
source of wisdom, well of grace
while we struggle in this place –
treasures hidden to be found
daily, and our joys abound. Tune: 77 77 77 eg Heathlands
'the glorious riches of this mystery, which is Christ in you, the hope of glory … that they may know the mystery of God, namely, Christ, in whom are hidden all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge’ Colossians 1:27; 2:2,3
