Love Divine

Love divine, all loves excelling, Joy of heav’n, to earth come down;  Fix in us Thy humble dwelling;  All Thy faithful mercies crown.  Jesus, Thou art all compassion, pure, unbounded love Thou art;  Visit us with Thy salvation; enter ev’ry trembling heart.

Breathe, O breathe Thy loving Spirit into ev’ry troubled breast!  Let us all in Thee inherit, let us find that second rest.  Take away our bent to sinning, Alpha and Omega be;  End  of faith, as its beginning, set our hearts at liberty.

Come, almighty to deliver, let us all Thy life receive;  Suddenly return, and never, nevermore Thy temples leave:  Thee we would be always blessing, serve Thee as Thy hosts above,  Pray, and praise Thee without ceasing, glory in Thy perfect love.

Finish then Thy new creation; pure and spotless let us be;  Let us see Thy great salvation, perfectly restored in Thee:  Changed from glory into glory, till in heav’n we take our place,  Till we cast our crowns before Thee, lost in wonder, love, and praise.

Inspiring Hymns #82

Love Led Him to Calvary

Love led the Savior, in days long ago, down to earth’s darkness, its sin and its woe;  Seeking the lost ones, His mercy to show, Love led Him to Calvary.

Love, for a manger, abandoned a throne, seeking the sinful, the sad and the lone;  Yearning to win them and make them His own,  Love led Him to Calvary.

Seeing the soul in its infinite worth, stooping, in love, to the lowliest birth, Seeking the lost in the byways of earth,  Love led Him to Calvary.

Longing, in pity, the lost ones to save, braving the Garden, the Cross and the Grave,  Seeking this only, the sinful to save,  Love led Him to Calvary.

Chorus:  Love led Him to Calvary, Love led Him to Calvary;  Seeking the lost, at the uttermost cost, Love led Him to Calvary.

Words:  Geo O. Webster

Music:  Chas. H. Gabriel

Fairacre Festival {book review}


Fairacre Festival is the 7th in the Fairacre series by Miss Read.  Short and sweet book, short and sweet book review, which is posted in Goodreads.

The Fairacre Festival,The Fairacre Festival, by Miss Read

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Public library copy. Fairer #7 I am enjoying reading them in order (again).

The church roof is damaged in a storm. The village takes on the daunting task of raising the money for repairs, culminating in the Fairacre Festival. In just over 100 pages, Miss Read leads her readers through the course of the village project, from start to finish.

While this volume takes a detour from the routine school activities, it does not wander from the theme of village life. It does focus more on the adults, and the vicar in particular. A good short read recommended to all. Miss Read has yet to disappoint.
