1st Corinthians  9
Sweet and Abundant is this Boast

melody

Sweet and abundant is this boast,
"Well done thou servant of the field"

My rights on earth I count as loss
For heaven's hope contains my yield

Gavest thou me the gospel seal,
When once Thou sealed me as Thine own,

To plant where they know not of Thee
That in Thee might this seed be grown

This boast my flesh would still deny
If to its alter I now bend
To drink its lust or lift its pride
And wear the wreath of fallen men

I fromThy use shall not be cast
If Thou remain my prize and shield
For then this boast will come at last,
"Well done thou servant of the field"

1st Corinthians 9

Paul - A Portrait of a Vessel of Christ


The Vessel's Priority

When once Thou sealed you as Thine own

Gavest thou me the gospel seal,

To plant where they know not of Thee


The Vessel's Boast

Sweet and abundant is this boast,

 

M

 

Rights of this earth I count as loss


How to be God's Winner

"Well done thou servant of my field 

That in this hope would be my yield

If Thou remain my prize and shield

This boast my flesh would still deny
If to its alter I now bend
To sate its lust or raise its pride
And wear the wreath of fallen men

I from thy use shall not be cast
For then this boast will come at last
"Well done thou servant of my field"
