WEDNESDAY 1/8 — HYMN DAY! “Praise Him! Praise Him! Jesus, our Blessed Redeemer,” another wonderful hymn by Fanny Crosby. Sing this one at the top of your lungs! (I had some trouble finding a video that didn’t make you sit through a commercial first, but you can listen to the song here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XZEAEzQBfSw)
1 Praise him! praise him! Jesus, our blessed Redeemer!
Sing, O earth his wonderful love proclaim!
Hail him! hail him! highest archangels in glory,
Strength and honor give to his holy name!
Like a shepherd Jesus will guard his children —
In his arms he carries them all day long:
Praise him! praise him! tell of his excellent greatness!
Praise him! praise him! ever in joyful song!
2 Praise him! praise him! Jesus, our blessed Redeemer!
For our sins he suffered and bled and died;
He our Rock, our hope of eternal salvation,
Hail him! hail him! Jesus the Crucified.
Sound his praises — Jesus who bore our sorrows —
Love unbounded, wonderful, deep and strong: [Refrain]
3 Praise him! praise him! Jesus, our blessed Redeemer!
Heav’nly portals loud with hosannas ring!
Jesus, Savior, reigneth for ever and ever,
Crown him! crown him! Prophet and Priest and King!
Christ is coming, over the world victorious —
Pow’r and glory unto the Lord belong: [Refrain]
