Hymn

ARTWORK_WonderfulWordsOfLife_X7_8x10L_v1_04-VerseOne-Header-570p

This simple, soulful hymn written in the late 1800’s is one of my favorite of all time.  It embodies with it, the idea of the Word being and having elements of beauty – which they certainly do!  Bro. Bliss penned them simply and boldly, both at the same time, to share with us what he had garnered from two passages in the New Testament: John and Philippians.

It is the spirit that quickeneth; the flesh profiteth nothing: the words that I speak unto you, they are spirit, and they are life. Then Simon Peter answered him, Lord, to whom shall we go? thou hast the words of eternal life.
John 6:63, 68 | King James Version

That ye may be blameless and harmless, the sons of God, without rebuke, in the midst of a crooked and perverse nation, among whom ye shine as lights in the world; Holding forth the word of life; that I may rejoice in the day of Christ, that I have not run in vain, neither laboured in vain.
Philippians 2:15-16 | King James Version

These words, the very Word of God, contains in it what gives each believer Eternal Life – the Holy Spirit, giving us a Hope that we will each Rejoice at His Second Coming.

Wonderful Words of Life

The active concept of listening to the VERY Word of God when we read the Bible nothing short of Miraculous!  In three verses, a clear message of trust, obey and the Saviour are all presented in those verses and chorus.

Verse One

Sing them over again to me,
Wonderful words of life,
Let me more of their beauty see,
Wonderful words of life;
Words of life and beauty
Teach me faith and duty.

Verse Two

Christ, the blessed One, gives to all
Wonderful words of life;
Sinner, list to the loving call,
Wonderful words of life;
All so freely given,
Wooing us to heaven.

Verse Three

Sweetly echo the Gospel call,
Wonderful words of life;
Offer pardon and peace to all,
Wonderful words of life;
Jesus, only Savior,
Sanctify us forever.

Refrain:

Beautiful words, wonderful words,
Wonderful words of life;
Beautiful words, wonderful words,
Wonderful words of life.

Wonderful Words of Life | Philip P. Bliss, 1874
