BE GLAD IN HIS SALVATION

Oneta 84

Meditation from my study in the Book of Isaiah.

After a series of curses and railings against nations who do not trust in God (Chapters 13-24), I am so relieved to run onto Chapter 25, a praise to God which includes the well- known promise of his someday wiping away all our tears. And I especially like verse 9, “In that day they will say, Surely this is our God; we trusted in him, and he saved us. This is the Lord, we trusted in him; let us rejoice and be glad in his salvation.”

This morning – being glad in his salvation – I recall a song: “Glory I’m saved! Glory, I’m saved! My sins are all pardoned, my guilt is all gone! Glory, I’m saved! Glory, I’m saved! I’m saved by the blood of the Crucified One!”

I have no idea where or when I learned that song, but I am amazed that I am thinking of it 110 years after it was written by S. J. Henderson, a rather obscure person in 1902. I can’t find anything about him online except that he seems to have written three songs.   

Bloggers, that shows the power our words could have on someone a hundred years from now.

 

  1. Saved by the blood of the Crucified One!
    Now ransomed from sin and a new work begun,
    Sing praise to the Father and praise to the Son,
    Saved by the blood of the Crucified One!

    • Refrain:
      Glory, I’m saved! Glory, I’m saved!
      My sins are all pardoned, my guilt is all gone!
      Glory, I’m saved! Glory, I’m saved!
      I’m saved by the blood of the Crucified One!
  2. Saved by the blood of the Crucified One!
    The angels rejoicing because it is done;
    A child of the Father, joint-heir with the Son,
    Saved by the blood of the Crucified One!
  3. Saved by the blood of the Crucified One!
    The Father He spake, and His will it was done;
    Great price of my pardon, His own precious Son;
    Saved by the blood of the Crucified One!
  4. Saved by the blood of the Crucified One!
    All hail to the Father, all hail to the Son,
    All hail to the Spirit, the great Three in One!
    Saved by the blood of the Crucified One!

About oneta hayes

ABOUT ME Hello. To various folks I am Neat’nee, Mom, Grandma Neta, Gramma, Aunt Neta, Aunt Noni, Aunt Neno, and Aunt Neto (lots of varieties from little nieces and nephews). To some I’m more like “Didn’t you used to be my teacher?” or “Don’t I know you from someplace?” To you, perhaps, I am a Fellow Blogger. Not “fellow” like a male or a guy, but “fellow” like a companion or an adventurer. I would choose to be Grandma Blogger, and have you pull up a chair, my website before you, while I tell you of some days of yore. I have experienced life much differently than most of you. It was and is a good life. I hope to share nuggets of appreciation for those who have gone before me and those who come after me. By necessity you are among those who come after me and I will tell you of those who came before. Once upon a time in a little house on a prairie - oops, change that lest I commit plagiarism - and change that “house on the prairie” to “dugout on the prairie.” So my story begins...

  1. Yes, the power of words! One of the things I pray daily is that God will use my words – spoken, written, sung, or prayed – to make beleivers out of unbelievers, and to help believers with whatever their need might be, whether it’s comfort, healing, encouragement, enlightenment, correction, warning, challenge, or inspiration.

      We have an awesome responsibility for what we say – but we can deny it. What we write will stand forever! 😀 I’m joking about denying what we say but the evidence is not so clear.

    I needed this post today, Oneta. Both the messege, the interesting piece of history and the timing is perfect. Now, “I feel like going on…” 💚💙🐛

  3. Thank you Oneta for the encouragement- both from you and my friend Isaiah 😍

    Oneta, thanks for sharing that hymn–my first acquaintance with it.

  6. that is a wonderful song Oneta! And you are so right….you just never know who your words will affect and how many years later.

    • oneta hayes says:

      Thank you. We are safe to point to the power of words – it is settled in the Bible. Words of life or words of death. It is painful when one realizes she has wounded by words. I have the experience. 😀

  7. Faye says:

    Wow! yes. Basic refrains and songs to affirm the truth of our identities. Blood bought children of God. We have been saved, He….. Almighty God is our Abba Father. What a reason to rejoice. Hallelujah!

    • oneta hayes says:

      Yes it is a “wow” wonder! Music of the soul pointing to the God/Man Jesus Christ and what he has made possible for us. Have you been well, Faye? Also how is the husband?

  8. Wally Fry says:

    That’s a great hymn, and we sing it now and then in our church. Just a few weeks ago in fact.

  9. Kristi Ann says:

    Amen-Amein!! Hallelujah and Maranatha!! Christ-Messiah Jesus-Yeshua SAVES!!

    Love Always and Shalom, YSIC \o/
