Such Great Love

"For when we were still without strength, in due time Christ died for the ungodly."
Romans 5:6


What Thou, my Lord, hast suffered,
Was all for sinners’ gain;
Mine, mine was the transgression,
But Thine the deadly pain.
Lo, here I fall, my Savior!
’Tis I deserve Thy place;
Look on me with Thy favor,
Vouchsafe me to Thy grace.

What language shall I borrow
To praise Thee, heavenly friend,
For this my dying sorrow,
Thy pity without end?
Lord make me Thine forever,
Nor let me faithless prove
Oh let me never, never
Abuse such dying love

Amen! I could never express the amazing love of our Saviour, to be willing to die for such sinner like me. A great reminder!
I hope you all have a wonderful Ressurection week.
God Bless,

Beautiful!
I really don't deserve what the Lord has given me. But I'm so thankful that He did send His Son to die for me. I can never thank Him enough.

Is that a song or poem? If so is the name of it "Such Great Love"?

Hope you all have a wonderful blessed Easter weekend.
He Is Risen!!!!

Do you or your siblings attend college or school past high school? Do you believe in it or not really? Just curious :)

I agree with anonymous. Why don't you go to college?

Rachel Wissmann said...

Thanks to your questions regarding college. We actually do recognize the need for higher education in many circumstances. But due to our family's travels and lifestyles, we've taken a non-conventional approach. Ruth actually does have her BA degree and Andrew is currently studying through CollegePlus! and has been able to clep out of many of his college classes. Several others have continued education via other means.

Hope this answers your questions!

What does Ruth have her BA in and what is Andrew studying for?
