QUOTE (Albert S. Reitz) – Jan 20

January 20, 2014

ReitzI was lost in sin when Jesus found me,
But He rescued me, all glory to His name!
And the cords of worldly pleasure bound me,
Till He saved me from sin and shame.

’Twas a glad day when Jesus found me,
When His strong arms were thrown around me;
When my sins He buried in the deepest sea,
And my soul He filled with joy and victory.
’Twas a glad day, O hallelujah!
’Twas a glad day He claimed His own.
I will shout a glad hosanna in glory
When I see Him upon His throne.
~ Albert S. Reitz, ’Twas A Glad Day When Jesus Found Me

In honor of Albert S. Reitz, American Baptist evangelist and clergyman, who was born on this day in 1879. He published over 100 hymns during his lifetime.

  1. I really like these quotes!

    The song, “Have a Little Talk With Jesus” has been running through my head ever since I read the first line. 🙂

  2. Loving all of this post and feeling so much love in return! ~ Blessings ~
