Title: Far before time

Date: 27/07/2011 (Other)

Speaker: Congregation

Bible Reference: Summer Conference Hymn

Description:
FAR before time, beyond creation's dawn,
Before the sun and moon and stars were born,
Salvation's way for sinners lost, undone
Was counselled forth by God the Three in One.

A store of grace unlimited was laid
In Jesus Christ before the seas were made;
And precious cov'nant mercies did abound
In floods of blessing all the world around.

The trumpet sounds the note of glad release
On Calvary, by God's atoning grace:
Glad hymns of praise in every tongue shall be
For Jesu's blood and death that set us free.

Peter Jones, 1775-1845; tr. by Edmund Tudor Owen, 1935 -
