From Here to There


Many of my friends suggested that I switch my URL from 'duhpaynes' over to my name, so I did. Nothing will change as far as content on the blog.  Everything is the same only the URL has changed. But that means that I lost all of you faithful followers in my GFC Follower widget. If you would like to keep up with the book posts, giveaways, interviews and rural living posts, please feel free to sign back up to follow thru GFC in the right hand sidebar @ http://annepayne.blogspot.com/ or you can sign up to follow through email or bloglovin. You can also follow me on Pinterest and Instagram but those aren't blog posts, just random fun stuff. :)

Thanks so much and I hope to see you there!

Have a blessed day,

{Sunday} Morning Worship & Praise

Amazing love! how can it be
That Thou, my God, should die for me!

And can it be that I should gain
An int'rest in the Savior's blood?
Died He for me, who caused His pain?
For me, who Him to death pursued?
Amazing love! how can it be
That Thou, my God, should die for me?

'Tis mystery all! Th'Immortal dies!
Who can explore His strange design?
In vain the firstborn seraph tries
To sound the depths of love divine!
'Tis mercy all! let earth adore,
Let angel minds inquire no more.

He left His Father's throne above,
So free, so infinite His grace;
Emptied Himself of all but love,
And bled for Adam's helpless race;
'Tis mercy all, immense and free;
For, O my God, it found out me.  

Long my imprisoned spirit lay
Fast bound in sin and nature's night;
Thine eye diffused a quick'ning ray,
I woke, the dungeon flamed with light;
My chains fell off, my heart was free;
I rose, went forth and followed Thee.

No condemnation now I dread;
Jesus, and all in Him is mine!
Alive in Him, my living Head,
And clothed in righteousness divine,
Bold I approach th'eternal throne,
And claim the crown, through Christ my own.  

Amazing love! how can it be
That Thou, my God, should die for me!

Charles Wesley, 1738
