85. There’s a Gospel of Today

1. There’s a gospel of today

That says believe and you’ll be saved – and then

You can go to heaven and see the pearly gates

And walk the golden streets

Words like these – fail to treat

All the vanity – that is hidden in me.


2. But the gospel is to me

The Triune God within humanity

As the Spirit reaching me to be in me

The One reality

Love untold – Gospel Thee

Never getting old – story told eternally.


3. Left the ninety-nine behind –

You searched until the lost sheep You did find

Laid me on Your shoulders there, You bore me in

Your tender loving care

Rejoicing – You found me

Though a small lost sheep – You gave all to come find me.


4. Sweeping in my deepest parts,

You lit a lamp and searched my inward heart

Sanctifying deep within You shined in me,

Exposed me of my sin

Repenting – now I see

Lord, You’re sprinkling me – with the blood You shed for me.


5. Eagerly awaiting me

That I the slightest turn to Thee would make

Though my life had been a wreck, You ran to me

And fell upon my neck

Kissing me, affectionately

Killed the calf for me – "Let us eat and be merry."
