Blessed Be the Lord our God

Blessed be the Father, who has blessed us
In Christ with every blessing from above;
Who chose us to be holy and be blameless;
Whose pleasure was adopting us in love;
Who planned before the world began
By His good will that we should stand
Before Him face to face
To the praise of the glory of His grace.

Blessed be the Son, who has redeemed us;
Whose blood, for our forgiveness has been spilled;
Who lavished grace so rich and free upon us;
Who showed to us the mystery of His will;
Whose kind intent made wisdom known;
Who's made us heirs of all He owns;
In whom our hope is placed
To the praise of the glory of His grace.

Blessed be the Spirit who sustains us;
The promised One in whom we have been sealed;
Who tuned our hearts to hear salvation's message;
By whom the Gospel's truth has been revealed;
Whom God gave as a guarantee
That what He owns, He will redeem;
Who stirs our hearts to faith
To the praise of the glory of His grace.

Blessed be the Father who has blessed us.
Blessed be the Son who shed His blood.
Blessed be the Spirit who sustains us.
Blessed be the Lord our God.

Valerie shares the context of writing the above hymn of praise. I only wish I could hear the tune that goes with it. As it is, I'm humming anyway.

Thanks for the link, but you're not supposed to be nice to me just after I post a snarky comment on your blog. Now half my hair is burnt off from the hot coals on my head! ;-)

We were posting at the same time. I didn't see your comment until afterwards. So, it wasn't hot coals. *grin*

And, to be honest, I wasn't really sure if it was snarky or not. *blush* Don't worry about it. . . Different views and all. It's okay.
