Hymn: Ah, Lord Jesus

We sang a beautiful song today at Orwell Bible Church called, "Ah, Lord Jesus" by Johann Heermann (1630). As you can imagine, the language is a bit archaic but the message still touched my heart. I am always happy to be reminded of Jesus' love for me despite my unwillingness to come to him on my own. My favorite verses were:

Who was the guilty? Who brought this upon thee?
Alas, my treason, Jesus, hath undone thee
'Twas I, Lord Jesus, I it was denied thee
I crucified thee

Lo, the Good Shepherd for the sheep is offered
The slave hath sinned and the Son hath suffered
For man's atonement while he nothing heeded
God interceded

Here is a video of a congregation singing the song:
