Ask Ye What Great Thing I Know

Ask Ye What Great Thing I Know

Song based on the Bible verse:
1 Corinthians 2:2
For I determined not to know anything among you except Jesus Christ and Him crucified.

Song written by:
Original in German: Johann C. Schwedler
Translated to English from German: Benjamin H. Kennedy

Ask ye what great thing I know
That delights and stirs me so
What the high reward I win
Whose the name I glory in
Jesus Christ the Crucified

What is faith’s foundation strong
What awakes my heart to song
He who bore my sinful load
Purchased for me peace with God
Jesus Christ the Crucified

Who is He that makes me wise
To discern where duty lies
Who is He that makes me true
Duty when discerned to do
Jesus Christ the Crucified

Who defeats my fiercest foes
Who consoles my saddest woes
Who revives my fainting heart
Healing all its hidden smart
Jesus Christ the Crucified

Who is life in life to me
Who the death of death will be
Who will place me on His right
With the countless hosts of light
Jesus Christ the Crucified

This is that great thing I know
This delights and stirs me so
Faith in Him who died to save
Him who triumphed over the grave
Jesus Christ the Crucified
