O Glorious Day!

A Joyful Bride as the doors flew open

 

It was great to be together this week for PWC.  Many of you were blessed and intrigued by the story of Joy’s wedding and the song that was played called Glorious Day.

Here are the words to the hymn written by J. Wilbur Chapman (1859 – 1918):

One Day (Glorious Day)

One day when Heaven was filled with His praises
One day when sin was as black as could be
Jesus came forth to be born of a virgin
Dwelt among men; my Example is He!

Living, He loved me
Dying, He saved me
Buried, He carried my sins far away
Rising, He justified, freely forever
One day He’s coming
Oh glorious day!

One day they led Him to Calvary’s mountain
One day they nailed Him to die on the tree
Suffering anguish, despised and rejected
Bearing our sins, my Redeemer is He!

And one day the grave could conceal Him no longer
One day the stone rolled away from the door
Then He arose; over death He had conquered
Now He’s ascended, my Lord forevermore!

One day the trumpet will sound for His coming
One day the skies with His glories will shine
Wonderful day my Beloved One’s bringing
Glorious Savior, this Jesus is mine!

Living, He loved me
Dying, He saved me
Buried, He carried my sins far away
Rising, He justified, freely forever
One day He’s coming
Oh glorious day![i]

Just as a bride lives in anticipation of her wedding day, so we ought to live in anticipation for that glorious day when we see Him face to face.

Guest bloggers start next week!  We have already received several devotional submissions for our blog from our women who attend the Positive Women Connection.   If you would like to submit a devotional send it to Karol@karolladd.com.  It will need to include a Bible verse and be about 500 words in length.  A selection committee will review it.  I’m looking forward to hearing from you!
