It has been said that the three most beautiful words of all are “I love you.” Jesus said “As the Father has loved me, so have I loved you. Abide in my love” (John 15:9 ESV). In every stanza of this hymn and in the refrain, we repeat with the assurance that “Jesus loves me.”

Harry Plantinga on the 2019 Hymn Society Conference

I returned recently from the annual conference of the Hymn Society in the U.S. and Canada. I’ve been a handful of times over the years. As usual, it was a wonderful conference with hundreds of worship leaders, pastors, priests, hymn writers, publishers, hymnologists, and people who just love to sing hymns.

Featured Hymn: "In the Cross of Christ I Glory"

Author: John Bowring (1825)

Tune: RATHBUN

This hymn was probably inspired by Galatians 6:14: “But far be it from me to boast except in the cross of our Lord Jesus Christ, by which the world has been crucified to me, and I to the world” (ESV). The first stanza expands on this verse, while the second and third stanzas deal with the meaning of the cross in times of pain and pleasure, and the peace and joy it brings regardless of circumstance. The fourth stanza summarizes the previous ones.
