Yesterday in Come to Jesus I spoke about Martin Cordner’s composition Fusion and how I have found the words and melody of the Come to Jesus, which is featured in this piece, have been going round my head for the last few weeks. Today I want to tell you about the other song featured in this music, General Albert Osborn‘s well known hymn, I Know Thee Who Thou Art:

I know thee who thou art,
And what thy healing name;
For when my fainting heart
The burden nigh o’ercame,
I saw thy footprints on my road
Where lately passed the Son of God.

Thy name is joined with mine
By every human tie,
And my new name is thine,
A child of God am I;
And never more alone, since thou
Art on the road beside me now.

Beside thee as I walk,
I will delight in thee
In sweet communion talk
Of all thou art to me;
The beauty of thy face behold
And know thy mercies manifold.

Let nothing draw me back
Or turn my heart from thee,
But by the Calvary track
Bring me at last to see
The courts of God, that city fair,
And find my name is written there.

This is a song of victory and reassurance that if we Come to Jesus we will receive forgiveness and eternal love.

Come to Jesus.
