There's a gospel of today

1
There's a gospel of today
That says believe and you'll be saved and then
You can go to heaven and see the pearly gates
And walk the golden streets;
Words like these fail to treat
All the vanity that is hidden in me.
2
But the gospel is to me
The Triune God within humanity
As the Spirit reaching me to be in me
The one reality;
Love untold—Gospel Thee
Never getting old—story told eternally.
3
Left the ninety-nine behind—
You searched until the lost sheep You did find,
Laid me on Your shoulders there, You bore me in
Your tender loving care;
Rejoicing—You found me
Though a small lost sheep—You gave all to come find me.
4
Sweeping in my deepest parts,
You lit a lamp and searched my inward heart,
Sanctifying deep within You shined in me,
Exposed me of my sin;
Repenting—now I see
Lord, You're sprinkling me—with the blood You shed for me.
5
Eagerly awaiting me
That I the slightest turn to Thee would make
Though my life had been a wreck, You ran to me
And fell upon my neck
Kissing me, affectionately;
Killed the calf for me—"Let us eat and be merry."

This hymn is very special. To all those who sang it and to those who know the significance of Luke 15, I know it's undeniable how this hymn is. Amen!

I really like this song because it really shows how much mercy we have from the Lord, for knowing the truth and the way. But the gospel is to me the Truine God within humanity!

This song shows that some of the religions promise things that aren't equal to the Lord. Praise the Lord!

This is the first time hearing the song on Hymnal.net and I just love it. I just feel like telling all the young people in the Church in NYC. This song has just brought me back to God's sweet will for us. People always feel the Bible only pertains to what was going on in that time it was return. But we, the Church, know that the Lord is moving today.

O LORD JESUS! Saints, stanza one says, "There's a gospel of today that says believe! And be saved!" It doesn't stop there because in the same stanza it says it "fails to treat all the vanity that is hidden in me". The first stanza is concerning Christianity today. But the second stanza is concerning the Lord's Recovery. Being the Triune God, all of God's fulness as the Spirit within us, reaching the saints, making His home in our hearts, and spreading into our souls and very being. Becoming "the one reality". Experiencing His love untold.

This song was the first song I ever sang when I got into the church life, and the song that saved me.
