QUOTE (Robert Lowery) – Mar. 12

March 12, 2014

lowryrsmWeeping will not save me.
Though my face were bathed in tears
That could not allay my fears,
Could not wash the stain of years;
Weeping will not save me.

Chorus:
Jesus wept and died for Me,
Jesus suffered on the tree,
Jesus waits to make me free;
He alone can save me.

Working will not save me.
Purest deeds that I can do,
Holiest thoughts and feelings too,
Cannot form my soul anew;
Working will not save me.

Waiting will not save me.
Helpless, guilty, lost, I lie,
In my ear is mercy’s cry;
If I wait I can but die;
Waiting will not save me.

Faith in Christ will save me.
Let me trust thy weeping Son,
Trust the work that he has done,
To his arms, Lord, help me run;
Faith in Christ will save me.
~Robert Lowery, “None but Jesus”

 In honor of Robert Lowery, a Baptist Pastor and hymn writer, who was born on this day in 1826.
