Love divine, so great and wondrous,
Deep and mighty, pure, sublime!
Coming from the heart of Jesus,
Just the same through tests of time.

Refrain

He the pearly gates will open,
So that I may enter in;
For He purchased my redemption
And forgave me all my sin.

2. Like a dove when hunted, frightened,
As a wounded fawn was I;
Brokenhearted, yet He healed me,
He will heed the sinner’s cry.

3. Love divine, so great and wondrous,
All my sins He then forgave!
I will sing His praise forever,
For His blood, His power to save.

4. In life’s eventide, at twilight,
At His door I’ll knock and wait;
By the precious love of Jesus
I shall enter Heaven’s gate.

“It Is No Secret What God Can Do”

 

The chimes of time ring out the news,
Another day is through.
Someone slipped and fell.
Was that someone you?

 

You may have longed for added strength,
Your courage to renew.
Do not be disheartened,
For I have news for you.

 

It is no secret what God can do.
What He’s done for others, He’ll do for you.
With arms wide open, He’ll pardon you.
It is no secret what God can do.

 

There is no night for in His light
You never walk alone.
Always feel at home,
Wherever you may go.

 

There is no power can conquer you
While God is on your side.
Take Him at His promise,
Don’t run away and hide.

 

It is no secret what God can do.
What He’s done for others, He’ll do for you.
With arms wide open, He’ll pardon you.
It is no secret what God can do.

“A Mighty Fortress Is Our God”   (stanzas 3,4)

 

And though this world, with devils filled, should threaten to undo us,
We will not fear, for God hath willed His truth to triumph through us:
The Prince of Darkness grim, we tremble not for him;
His rage we can endure, for lo, his doom is sure,
One little word shall fell him.

 

That word above all earthly powers, no thanks to them, abideth;
The Spirit and the gifts are ours through Him Who with us sideth:
Let goods and kindred go, this mortal life also;
The body they may kill: God’s truth abideth still,
His kingdom is forever.

 

Written by Martin Luther born 11/10/1483, Eisleben, Germany.  Luther saw in the Holy Scriptures that the Just Shall Live By Faith  (Hab 2.4, Rom 1.17, Gal 3.11, & Heb 10.38).  This revolutionized his life, increased the Reformation (already started at least by John Hus’ time), and caused rejoicing among souls freed from the system of works, works, works.
