Lenten Pilgrimage - 11

Today we are in Dingwall. This town is of course famous for HTC - The Highland Theological College.

The Episcopal church is dedicated to St James the Great, and is located in Castle Street, very close to the Theological College (which is the building just beneath the letter H in the word 'Hotel'). Bishop Mark informs me that he has never been invited to HTC - by way of contrast, I am quite a regular visitor!

We have heard the joyful sound: Jesus saves!
Spread the tidings all around: Jesus saves!
Bear the news to every land, climb the mountains, cross the waves;
Onward! ’tis our Lord’s command; Jesus saves!

Waft it on the rolling tide: Jesus saves!
Tell to sinners far and wide: Jesus saves!
Sing, you islands of the sea; echo back, you ocean caves;
Earth shall keep her jubilee: Jesus saves!

Sing above the battle strife: Jesus saves!
By His death and endless life: Jesus saves!
Shout it brightly through the gloom, when the heart for mercy craves;
Sing in triumph o’er the tomb: Jesus saves!

Give the winds a mighty voice: Jesus saves!
Let the nations now rejoice: Jesus saves!
Shout salvation full and free; highest hills and deepest caves;
This our song of victory: Jesus saves!
