Tribute to Rev. Billy Graham

Immediately after the fall of man in Eden, loosing our loved ones became a custom and way of life. We received the news of the death of our beloved father, leader, mentor, counselor, general, Evangelist, preacher and pastor Rev. Billy Graham, who passed on to eternal glory on Wednesday 21st February, 2018. Indeed, Rev. Graham was not just a father to his immediate family (The Grahams), but to all and sundry.

We read of how God used him mightily and how he finished his work. Indeed, his death which was supposed to be full of sorrow was turned into joy because of his works were fully completed and he enjoyed real longevity. Like the bible says, “the end of the righteous is peace” and “precious in God’s sight is the death of the righteous”. We join the host of heaven to rejoice as we look forward to an eternal reunion. Lives were touched by your sermons. Many were also converted by reading your books. Rev. Billy Graham used every available means, tools and methodology to reach men for Christ and we look forward for God’s grace to help us follow suit.

The team of Christianityupdate hereby condoles the family, team and members of Billy Graham Evangelical Association (BGEA) for the lose and ask that God fills the vacuum that has been created. Just as the name of Apostle Paul cannot be forgotten till the end of age, the name of Rev. Billy Graham will not also be forgotten. Dear sir, you remain the great evangelist of the 20th century. We will conclude this tribute with two songs:

JUST AS I AM

1) Just as I am, without one plea,
But that Thy blood was shed for me,
And that Thou bid’st me come to Thee,
O Lamb of God, I come! I come!

2) Just as I am, and waiting not
To rid my soul of one dark blot;
To Thee whose blood can cleanse each spot,
O Lamb of God, I come, I come!

3) Just as I am, though tossed about
With many a conflict, many a doubt;
Fightings within, and fears without,
O Lamb of God, I come, I come!

4) Just as I am, poor, wretched, blind;
Sight, riches, healing of the mind;
Yes, all I need, in Thee to find,
O Lamb of God, I come, I come!

5) Just as I am, Thou wilt receive,
Wilt welcome, pardon, cleanse, relieve;
Because Thy promise I believe,
O Lamb of God, I come, I come!

6) Just as I am, Thy love unknown
Has broken every barrier down;
Now, to be Thine, yea, Thine alone,
O Lamb of God, I come, I come

THE END OF THE RIGHTEOUS (specially written in remembrance of Rev. Billy Graham).

1) We’ve read about the path of the righteous,
Wherein all those who love their Lord follow,
It is a path that sometimes has sorrow,
But in all, Jesus Christ comforts His own.

Refrain
The end of the righteous,
Oh how joyful it is,
Full of sweetness and bliss,
In the presence of God,
United with loves cord.

2) God delights in the death of the righteous,
Billy Graham, you’ve labored, now you’re gone.
Gone to abide in your heavenly home,
Though you’ve gone, you’ll always be remembered,
For you fervent labor in God’s vineyard.
(Refrain)

3) Lord help us to live and die righteously.
Just as you are without one plea you came,
Christ received you and gave you a new name.
Just as you were wretchedly tossed about,
Christ from sin and hell brought you out.
(Refrain)

4) Billy Graham, you taught us righteousness,
You taught us to come to God the way we’re
Though finding your replacement might be rare,
Yet we will tow in line with your teachings
We’ll never forget you godly preaching
(Refrain)

5) Now in heaven, the home of the righteous,
We look forward for a sure reunion,
Where Jesus will be our great companion
Keep resting in the bosom of the Lord,
Till we meet at the feet of our great God.
(Refrain)
