An "oldie" but "goodie"

The ministry of Bill and Gloria Gaither has blest my heart for many, many years. As long as I can remember, these two "giants" (in my eyes, at least) have enriched the Christian community with their prolific and powerful songwriting. Here is one of those grand treasures from years gone by:


I thought I had to see and feel
To prove that what I loved was really real
As passion turned to ashes, things I held to dust
I found reality in simple trust

My faith still holds on to the Christ of Calvary
Oh blessed Rock of Ages cleft for me
I gladly place my trust in things I can not see
My faith still holds on to the Christ of Calvary

I tried to find life's mysteries
Just by the reason of my mind to see
But void remain between me and where I longed to be
Till childlike faith there built a bridge for me

And oh what joy to walk His way
I followed nailed-pierced footprints all the way
Though the end of where I'm bound I may not see
I choose to place my trust in Calvary

Thank you Bill and Gloria for ministering to my heart for so many years!
