Sing, sing of my Savior
SONG: A song of praise for our Savior and encouragement to follow Him on the way He opened for us!
For Brunstad Christian Church’s virtual summer conference this year, some of the youth from BCC Salem performed this song of praise from our song book Ways of the Lord. This song, written by Johan Oscar Smith, encourages us to “sing our way through” in life – in other words, to remain in a spirit of thanking and praising God no matter what comes our way. This becomes easier and easier as our eyes become open to the great grace that is over our lives! The reason is our Savior, Jesus Christ, who gave Himself entirely for our sakes, winning full victory over all sin and so opening a way on which we can follow Him. He truly is worthy of all praise and honor – and obedience!
Lyrics: Sing, sing of my Savior!
Sing, sing of my Savior! Sing, sing it again!
Sing till each heart is burning. Sing, sing it again!
Sing, sing your way through, and sing, sing when you’re glad!
Sing, sing so each heart beats, freed, ne’ermore to be sad!
Who, who was triumphant, full victory won?
Who’s trod alone the winepress like Jesus has done?
Who loved without measure, died so we might live?
Who has Bread of Life and living water to give?
He, He has so gripped me deep, deep in my heart.
He crushed the serpent’s head, and all chains burst apart.
He, He is arisen; He gives hope anew.
With fire and the Spirit He has baptized me too.
He, He tells us kindly where, where the way leads.
He speaks to us so clearly, that we may take heed.
Come, come now, my brother; come, walk in this way.
It truly is simple; come, we must not delay!
