Who Can Stand Before the Lord?

We learn lots of our theology through songs. So 'when Satan tempts me to despair and tells me of the guilt within' it is great that 'upward I look and see him there who made an end of all my sin', and so on...

So: here's a great new hymn by Daniel Newman celebrating the completed work of Christ - more formally, the great doctrine of particular redemption a.k.a. limited atonement. Born in adversity (see here) it is almost worthy of Toplady - and this is only Daniel's first attempt! More please!

Also, here are some other exciting offerings from Liam Beadle, spread throughout his blog.

My one vague effort last year was to have added a couple of verses to a great song by Geraldine Latty based on Pss 15 & 24. I love her song, but it stops far too early in the whole salvation/eschatological process, and states the individual aspects of redemption without celebrating the communal ones too...

Who can stand before the Lord in his holy place
Who can walk upon the hill of the Lord
Only he whose hands are clean
Only he whose heart is pure
Can stand before the Lord.

I will stand, I will come before the presence of the King:
For His blood, washes me from sin
I enter in.

There is one who stands for me in the holy place
And he walked the lonely hill to the cross
And I know his hands are clean
And I know his heart is pure
He is Jesus Christ the Lamb.

I will stand, I will come before the presence of the King:
For His blood, washes me from sin
I enter in.

Now the whole church stands with him in that holy place
We are purified in Christ our Lamb.
And in him our hands are clean
In him our hearts are pure
In Jesus Christ the Lord

We now stand, we have come before the presence of the King:
For His blood, washes us from sin
We’ve entered in.

For eternity we’ll stand in the holy place
God’s new Zion, glorious hill of the Lord
With our hands forever clean
And our hearts forever pure
Praising Jesus Christ the Lamb.

We will stand, we will come before the presence of the King:
For His blood, washes us from sin
We’ll enter in.

Hey v gd T! I like "We've entered in" *and* "we'll" enter in. Let's sing it in chapel.

I bet I could introduce that one at Moore - you OK with that?

I'm very OK with that - anyone's welcome to make free use of those words. We may well do it in chapel next term here - but I'm not sure whether I want to pick a song I wrote half of...

Dear Andrew,

Liam Beadle has just pointed me in the direction of your 'blog. Thanks very much for your encouragment regarding my hymn on PR/ER/LA and putting up a link to it I've been tweaking it (for grammar this time, not theology - too many participles in the second verse), so the link has changed. It is now

I'm enjoying your 'blog - I might even link to it!

Stand firm and be right!
