Anugerah Yang Mengherankan

Full Text

1 Betapa heran manis bunyi Anugerah,
Yang selamatkan celaka seperti saya;
Sekali saya kesasar, tapi sekarang ketemu,
Buta, tapi sekarang melihat.

2 Itulah Anugerah yang mengajar hati saya takut,
Dan Anugerah bebaskan ketakutan saya;
Betapa mulia menghadap Anugerah,
Sewaktu saya pertama percaya.

3 Melalui banyak bahaya, banting tulang dan jerat,
Saya telah alami;
Kini, Anugerah itulah telah membawa saya selamat,
Dan Anugerah memimpin saya kerumah.

4 Tuhan telah berjanji baik kepada saya,
Perkataan-Nya harapan saya kukuh;
Ia akan jadi lindungan dan bagian saya,
Selama menahan hidup.

5 Yea, bilamana daging ini dan hati jatuh,
Dan hidup maut akan berhenti;
Saya akan berada didalam tudung,
Hidup keriangan dan damai.

6 Dunia akan segera larut seperti salju,
Matahari menahan sinarnya;
Tapi Tuhan Yang memanggil saya dibawah sini,
Untuk selamanya punya saya.

7 Apabila kita telah disana sepuluhribu tahun,
Terang menyinari seperti sinar matahari;
Tidak kurang hari kita menyanyi Pujian Tuhan,
Daripada sewaktu kita pertama mulai.

His life at sea teems with wonderful escapes, vivid dreams, and sailor recklessness. He grew into an abandoned and godless sailor. The religious fits of his boyhood changed into settled infidelity, through the study of Shaftesbury and… Go to person page >
