At the Break of Day
A Thought for the Day
by Bro. Steve Skaggs

The second stanza of Fanny Crosby’s hymn, “Jesus, Keep Me near the Cross” –

“Near the cross a trembling soul,
love and mercy found me;
There the Bright and Morning Star
Shed His beams around me.”

Galatians 2:20 is of many verses that may have inspired the thoughts conveyed in this hymn: “And it is no longer I who live, but it is Christ who lives in me. And the life I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me.

Such love ought to make us tremble in awe!
