He will embrace me in His arms;
In the arms of my dear Savior,
O there are ten thousand charms."
In the previous post, we have a person who acknowledges their need for the Savior. In this stanza, we have the action-step. This person decides that, based on the great love of Jesus, he is going to respond to Christ. The expressions of the first line indicate repentance - a change of the will that directs itself towards Christ.
Now, look at what this person believes Jesus is going to do.
- Embrace him.
- Grant unlimited joy.
When someone turns to Jesus, they have God's love protecting them, the potential of unlimited joy and a promised hope that now Jesus is not just someone else's Savior, but "my dear Savior."
