I Stand Amazed Hymn History and Lyrics

I Stand Amazed Hymn Story

I Stand Amazed is a hymn from the pen of Charles Gabriel (1856-1932) who is credited with between 7000 and 8000 songs.

Charles Gabriel was a self-trained musician who learned music while still a teenager. He later taught music in singing schools common in the 19th an early 20th century.

He composed songs, anthems, cantatas and also edited a collection of songs. He was associated with the major music publishers of his day.

This song is a song of gratitude for the atoning death of Jesus Christ and is based on Luke's account of Jesus sweating blood in the Garden of Gethsemane. This story is only found in Luke's gospel and not in the other gospels.

Luke 22:41-44 reads, "And he was withdrawn from them about a stone's cast, and kneeled down, and prayed, Saying, Father, if thou be willing, remove this cup from me: nevertheless not my will, but thine, be done. And there appeared an angel unto him from heaven, strengthening him. And being in an agony he prayed more earnestly: and his sweat was as it were great drops of blood falling down to the ground" (KJV).

I Stand Amazed Hymn Lyrics


I stand amazed in the presence
Of Jesus the Nazarene,
And wonder how he could love me,
A sinner, condemned, unclean.

How marvelous! How wonderful!
And my song shall ever be:
How marvelous! How wonderful
Is my Savior’s love for me.

He took my sins and my sorrows,
He made them his very own;
He bore the burden to Calvary,
And suffered and died alone.

How marvelous! How wonderful!
And my song shall ever be:
How marvelous! How wonderful
Is my Savior’s love for me.

Oh, what kind of love is this?
You would die so I would live?
I stand amazed.
I stand amazed.

Bore the curse of all my sin —
Made your enemy your friend.
I stand amazed.
I stand amazed.

Oh, what kind of love is this?
You would die so I would live?
I stand amazed.
I stand amazed.

Bore the curse of all my sin —
Made your enemy your friend.
I stand amazed.
I stand amazed.

When with the ransomed in glory
His face I, at last, shall see,
’Twill be my joy through the ages
To sing of his love for me.

How marvelous! How wonderful!
And my song shall ever be:
How marvelous! How wonderful
Is my Savior’s love for me.

When We Walk With The Lord Hymn (Trust And Obey) - History of hymn

When We Walk With The Lord History This hymn came about from an incident at one of Dwight L Moody's revival meetings in 1887. A young man who had just given his life to the Lord Jesus Christ was reportedly heard saying, 'I am not quite sure - I am going to trust and obey.' 
The music director of the Moody Bible Institute, Professor Towner, was present at the meeting when these words were uttered. Based on these words, Professor Towner with the help of John Sammis, who developed the lyrics, composed the music to this hymn Trust and Obey or When we walk with the Lord.
The words seem so simple but they express the feelings of many Christians. It is not easy to trust and obey but that is what we are all called to do if we are to be happy in Jesus.
This song has remained popular with many Christian singers to this day and it is my hope that you too will be blessed by this simple but powerful Christian song.

Will Your Anchor Hold?- Story Behind This Classic Hymn

Will Your Anchor Hold History The author of this hymn, "Will Your Anchor Hold", is Priscilla Owens. She was born in Baltimore, USA in 1829 of Scottish and Welsh blood. For over 50 years Priscilla Owens was actively involved in work for Christian youths and most of her songs were therefore composed for children. 
Besides this hymn she is also well known as the composer of another beloved Christian hymn, "We have heard a joyful sound". She also composed several other hymns during her fruitful life on earth.
"Will Your Anchor Hold" was sung outside the door of the dying hymn-writer Mary Fawler Maude (Thine For Ever! God of love). She sent her singers the message, "Tell them that it does not fail - it holds."
The hymn suggests that personal stability can only come from the right foundations. It employs a seafaring analogy in making its point. Will Your Anchor Hold Lyrics Below are the lyrics of this Christian hymn classic:-

Be Still For The Presence of The Lord Lyrics and Story Author: David J Evans

Story Behind "Be Still For The Presence of the Lord" For me and many Christians I believe, Be Still For The Presence Of The Lord, ranks high among worship hymns of all time. It is a beautiful song with a clear and simple message.
It is a call for us to tune out everything and focus on the Lord. The Holy One is here and nothing else matters.
It is one of the most beloved modern hymns that are full of the teachings of the scripture. It reminds me of the tradition long gone where hymns were used as vehicles for spreading the teachings of the church.
The author of this hymn is David J Evans who wrote this song in the 1980s.
The inspiration for this hymn is the story of Jacob fleeing from his brother. While in the wilderness he had a dream where he saw angels going up and down a ladder to heaven. The old Testament says, " ‘then Jacob awoke from his sleep and said, “surely the Lord is in this place and I did not know it.”

I have also read somewhere where it is said that this …
