T4G 08 Slideshow

The Together 4 the Gospel site has put up a wonderful slideshow from the 2008 Conference. What wonderful memories of God's grace and the goodness of the Gospel! Take a look here.

There is word that a cd will be coming out from the conferences sometime later this year. Yeah! That will get much use in my car and in my office. The slideshow is set to the gloriously beautiful hymn by Isaac Watts, How Sweet and Aweful Is This Place. Below are the words to the hymn. Watch the slideshow the first time for the pictures. Then listen to it a second time and sing along. While I love both contemporary music/hymns, there's no contemporary song that competes with this great hymn!

How sweet and aweful is this place
With Christ within the doors,
While everlasting love displays
The choicest of her stores!

While all our hearts and all our songs
Join to admire the feast,
Each of us cry, with thankful tongues,
"Lord, why was I a guest?

"Why was I made to hear Thy voice,
And enter while there’s room,
When thousands make a wretched choice,
And rather starve than come?"

‘Twas the same love that spread the feast
That sweetly drew us in;
Else we had still refused to taste,
And perished in our sin.

Pity the nations, O our God!
Constrain the earth to come;
Send Thy victorious Word abroad,
And bring the strangers home.

We long to see Thy churches full,
That all the chosen race
May with one voice, and heart and soul,
Sing Thy redeeming grace.
