Today's hymn, "Once He Came In Blessing" (#333), is from the "Lutheran Service Book" (c) 2006 Concordia Publishing House.
1. Once He came in blessing, All our sins redressing; Came in likeness lowly,
Son of God most holy; Bore the cross to save us; Hope and freedom gave us.
2. Now He gently leads us; With Himself He feeds us Precious food from heaven,
Pledge of peace here given, Manna that will nourish Souls that they may flourish.
3. Soon will come that hour when with mighty power Christ will come in splendor
And will judgment render, With the faithful sharing Joy beyond comparing.
4. Come, then, O Lord Jesus, From our sins release us. Keep our hearts believing,
That we, grace receiving, Ever may confess You Till in heav'n we bless You.
Soli Deo Gloria
