Christ My Song - 1223
Yes, the Lord has thus far led us
(Thomas Kelly/Johannes Thomas Rüegg)
Yes, the Lord has thus far led us.
"Who delivered us ... and doth deliver: in whom we trust that he will yet deliver." (2 Corinthians 1,10)
1. Yes, the Lord has thus far led us;
here our "stone of help" we raise;
he has taught, and he has fed us;
glorious he in all his ways.
Let us tell it, let us tell it,
tell it to our Saviour's praise. PDF - Midi
2. In the land of slaves he found us;
grievous was the tyrant's yoke,
galling were the chains that bound us,
but the Lord our fetters broke;
strong his arm is, strong his arm is,
and the tyrant felt his stroke.
3. He whose arm has thus far brought us,
will be with us all our way;
with his blood the Lord has bought us;
trust him, then, for well we may.
What we owe him, what we owe him,
who in heav'n or earth can say?
4. Bright and blessed regions are there,
where we hope one day to be;
we shall never hear of war there,
and no foe shall ever see.
Blessed regions, blessed regions,
free from sin, from trouble free.
Thomas Kelly, Hymns on various passages of Scripture, ca. 1853, Hymn 414. (Repetition in the fifth lines added.)
