WE HAVE AN ALTAR (introduction)


I wanted to let you have a glance at the title verse, the title song (by Fanny Crosby), the Table of Contents, and the Intoduction to the our new book, WE HAVE AN ALTAR. I hope it will soon be available in English. It is already published in Spanish. 

“We have an altar from which those who serve the tabernacle have no right to eat. For the bodies of those animals whose blood is brought into the holy place by the high priest as an offering for sin, are burned outside the camp. Therefore Jesus also, that He might sanctify the people through His own blood, suffered outside the gate. So, let us go out to Him outside the camp, bearing His reproach. For here we do not have a lasting city, but we are seeking the city which is to come.”                                                                                    Hebrews 13:10-14 

Near the Cross

Jesus, keep me near the cross, there a precious fountain;
Free to all a healing stream, flows from Calvary’s mountain.

In the cross, a trembling soul, love and mercy found me;
There the bright and morning star, shed its beams around me.

In the cross, oh Lamb of God, bring its scenes before me;
Help me walk from day to day, with its shadow o’er me.

In the cross I’ll watch and wait, hoping, trusting ever,
‘Til I reach the golden strand just beyond the river.

In the cross, in the cross, be my glory ever,
‘Til my raptured soul shall find, rest beyond the river.

Fanny Crosby
