Scripture Verse

Early in the morning, Jesus stood on the shore. John 21:4


Henry L. Gilmour

Words & Mu­sic: Hen­ry L. Gil­mour, 1897 (🔊 pdf nwc).


Jesus stood on the shore,
When the morning came,
Appearing to His friends once more;
The belovèd disciple knew the Lord,
Who loved him as in days of yore.


Jesus stands on the shore today,
Helping struggling souls by the way;
On the land, or wave, Jesus waits to save,
He never turns a soul away.

Jesus stood by the way,
When the beggar blind,
For mercy cried thro’ nature’s night;
As he cast down his garments at His feet,
By faith he there received his sight.


Jesus stood by the grave
Of the friend He loved,
And showed His resurrection power;
Quickly gave the command,
Come forth, come forth,
Unloose, and let him go this hour.


Jesus standeth today at the mercy-seat,
Our advocate with God above;
Shows His nail piercèd hands,
And pleading stands,
Unchanging in His wondrous love.
