JESUS BUILT THIS CHURCH ON LOVE

Recorded 1986 by The Hemphills I CAN SMILE
Copyright 1984 Riversong Records


Listen to the Tune

1. Do you ever just get wond’rin’ ’bout the way things are today?
So many on board the gospel ship trying to row it a different way.
If we’d all pull together like a family me and you
We’d come a lot closer to doin’ what the Lord called us to do.

CHORUS:

Jesus built this church on love, on love. That’s what it’s all about.
Tryin’ to get everybody saved, not to keep anybody out.
The door’s wide open and just as big as the Father’s heart above.
Glad He said, “Whosoever will.” Jesus built this church on love.

2. Now when the shepherd found the lost sheep wand’ring from the fold,
In loving arms he held it, he did not blame or scold.
Now we could learn a lesson that would made our efforts blessed.
Our methods and our message must be filled with tenderness.

CHORUS:

Jesus built this church on love, on love. That’s what it’s all about.
Tryin’ to get everybody saved, not to keep anybody out.
The door’s wide open and just as big as the Father’s heart above.
Glad He said, “Whosoever will.” Jesus built this church on love.
Tag: Glad He said, “Whosoever will.” Jesus built this church on love.

    Our Holdeman bro. and sis. also sing about the “place” where our faith lies; I wonder, is it possible that there may be confusion where this is ?

    Another in the Church Hymnal, which tells us this place is not in our church organization, but the place where Christ meets all who come to Him. We note that this hymn says that the hollowed spot is “not where kindred souls abound”; but in Christ, (BTW, Menno Simons writes “Christ, (is) the true church”. No salvation outside of this church and all saved are in this church.)
