I AM SO GLAD THAT JESUS LOVES ME (INU MI NDUN PE JESU FE MI) BY PHILLIP PAUL BLISS 1838-1876

Phillip Paul Bliss was born in Pennsylvania on July 9,1838 and died Dec 29., 1876. Composer and singer worked as a farmer and woodcutter until 1855. Bliss and his wife died in a tragic train wreck caused by a bridge collapse. He survived the initial impact, but went back into the flames in an unsuccessful attempt to rescue his wife.

Philip Paul one of the hymns composer and author, the composer of “i am so glad that Jesus loves me” “inu mi ndun pe Jesu fe mi” was struck to death untimely, a tragic accidental train wreck, snuffed out his life in his 38th year.

He was born to parents that loved to sing

His youth was spent in extreme poverty, and he was a large, awkward boy. At the young age of 11, he left his home to find work, and worked at various lumber camps and sawmills for about 10 years. It was at age 12 that he made a profession of faith in Christ, and then joined the Cherry Flats Baptist Church of Tioga County, Pennsylvania

 

His father was a lover of music and it was through his father that he developed a passion for singing. They attended the Methodist Church

In 1858, he married musician and poet, Lucy Young. She encouraged Philip to develop his gifts and so in 1864, he sent a letter and a copy of his first music composition to the leading music publishing house, Root and Cady Music, in exchange for a flute, which he received

In the summer of 1869, he met D.L. Moody in Chicago, and he became a frequent singing at Moody’s evangelistic meetings. The singing intensified the effectiveness of the evangelistic message, intensifying Moody’s belief that music was important in evangelism.

In 1874, two evangelists, D.L. Moody and Major Daniel W. Whittle, challenged him to go full time into evangelistic work with them, which he did. Whittle was a song leader and children’s worker.

Mr. Bliss made a formal surrender of his life to Jesus Christ. He gave up everything his musical conventions, his writing of secular songs, his business position, his work at the church, so that he would be free to devote full time to the singing of sacred music in evangelism, in particular to be Mr. Whittle’s song evangelist and children’s worker. At the same time, Mr. Whittle dedicated his life to full-time evangelism. A gospel team was born. Little did Mr.Bliss know that he only had two and one-half years to live.

Mr. Bliss spent the Christmas holidays with his mother and sister at Towanda and Rome, Pennsylvania, and made plans to return to Chicago for work with Moody in January. A telegram, however, arrived asking him to return sooner, in order to take part in meetings advertised for the Sunday following Christmas. He wired a message. “Tickets for Chicago, via Buffalo and Lake Shore Railroad. Baggage checked through. Shall be in Chicago Friday night. God bless you all forever.” He decided to leave his two little children, Philip Paul age 1 and George age 4, with his mother.

.

At Christmastime, he took his family to visit his mother at his childhood home in Rome, Pennsylvania. On December 29, 1876, they boarded a packed Pacific Express train in Buffalo to return to Chicago. About 8 p.m. they were in a blinding snowstorm, The train, the Pacific Express, was struggling along in a blinding snowstorm and was about three hours late on a Friday afternoon, and the train was crossing a ravine. The wooden trestle collapsed, the train overturned, plunged 75 feet below into an icy river and caught fire, it was determined that the flood waters had weakened the bridge, Over one hundred people perished in the wreck. Philip had survived the wreck and escaped the train through a window, but re-entered to rescue his wife, and perished with her. In a trunk placed on another train, which arrived safely in Chicago, his friends found his last hymn entitled, “I Will Sing of My Redeemer.”

We end this sketch noting It is Well with My Soul whose words were written by Horatio G. Spafford. On November 22, 1873, this preacher and good friend of Mr. Bliss lost his four children in the depths of the Atlantic Ocean, as a result of a collision. Mr. Spafford had sent his wife and children ahead, promising to meet them in France, shortly. He wrote the verses in mid-Atlantic on his way over to join his bereaved wife. He asked Mr. Bliss to write the music for his verses. It was introduced publicly for the first time at the previously mentioned ministers’ meeting in Chicago in November, 1876. One month later, it was well with Mr. Bliss’s soul, as he was reunited with the Spafford children.

ENGLISH VERSION  –       I AM SO GLAD THAT OUR FATHER IN HEAVEN

1.I AM so glad that our Father in heaven

Tells of His love in the Book He has giv’n;

Wonderful things in the Bible I see;

 This is the dearest, that Jesus love me.

 

Chorus:

I am so glad that Jesus loves me, Jesus loves me, Jesus loves me,

I am so glad that Jesus loves me, Jesus loves even me.

 

2.Jesus loves me and I know I love Him;

Love brought Him down my lost soul to redeem;

 Yes, it was love made Him die on the tree:

Oh, I am certain that Jesus loves me.

 

3.In this assurance I find sweetest rest,

 Trusting in Jesus I know I am blest;

Satan dismayed from my soul doth now flee,

 When I just tell him that Jesus loves me.

 

4.Oh, if there’s only one song I can sing,

 When in His beauty I see the great King,

This shall my song in eternity be,

 “Oh, what a wonder that Jesus loves me!”

 

5.If one should ask of me how can I tell?

 Glory to Jesus, I know very well!

God’s Holy Spirit with mine doth agree,

 Constantly witnessing-Jesus loves me

Phillip Paul Bliss
