Text Based On Colossians Chapter 5 (KJV)
Who is he that condemneth? It is Christ
that died, yea rather, that is risen again,
who is even at the right hand of God, who
also maketh intercession for us.
Words: Frances M. Synge: 1842-1883

I AM NOT SKILLED TO UNDERSTAND
I am not skilled to understand
What God hath willed, what God hath planned;
I only know at His right hand
Is One Who is my Saviour!
I take Him at His word indeed;
“Christ died for sinners”—this I read;
For in my heart I find a need
Of Him to be my Saviour!
That He should leave His place on high
And come for sinful man to die,
You count it strange? So once did I,
Before I knew my Saviour!
And oh, that He fulfilled may see
The travail of His soul in me,
And with His work contented be,
As I with my dear Saviour!
Yea, living, dying, let me bring
My strength, my solace from this Spring;
That He Who lives to be my King
Once died to be my Saviour!
