Wonderful Words Of Life

Today’s video features the hymn, “Wonderful Words Of Life,” written by Philip P. Bliss in 1874. Philip was born in Clearfield County, Pennsylvania in 1838. As a young boy he left home to make a living working on farms and in lumber camps, all the while trying to continue with his schooling. While attending a revival meeting at age 12, Philip accepted Christ as his Savior. He later became a music teacher and attended Normal Academy of Music in Genesco, New York. He published his first hymn in 1864 and joined Dwight L. Moody in 1868. In 1876, Philip and his wife tragically died in a train wreck on their way to Chicago to sing at the evangelistic services. He was only 38 years old.

Other popular hymns written by Bliss include “I Will Sing of My Redeemer”, “Jesus Love Even Me”, “Dare to be a Daniel” and “Hallelujah, What a Savior!”

Sing them over again to me,
Wonderful words of life;
Let me more of their beauty see,
Wonderful words of life;
Words of life and beauty
Teach me faith and duty.

Christ, the blessed one, gives to all
Wonderful words of life;
Sinner, list to the loving call,
Wonderful words of life;
All so freely given,
Wooing us to heaven.

Sweetly echo the gospel call,
Wonderful words of life;
Offer pardon and peace to all,
Wonderful words of life;
Jesus, only Savior,
Sanctify forever.

Beautiful words, wonderful words,
Wonderful words of life;
Beautiful words, wonderful words,
Wonderful words of life.

Thank you for listening!

105 Your word is a lamp to my feet
And a light to my path.

Psalms 119:105

13 For this reason we also constantly thank God that when you received the word of God which you heard from us, you accepted it not as the word of men, but for what it really is, the word of God, which also performs its work in you who believe.

1 Thessalonians 2:13
