I don’t remember where I first heard it, but this lovely old hymn is one of my favorites. I hadn’t sung it in a while, but found it again on someone’s blog recently with slightly different words. What memories! You can listen to the tune and see two more verses here.
This post is the second in my new series Strength in Hymn, for those who need a bit of consolation and renewal after rough patches on the Christian journey. The first one is I Dare Not Trust the Sweetest Frame? You might also like Love Lifted Me.
What hymns are encouraging to you in this season of life? Do you have any favorites from days gone by that you'd like to dust off and sing again? Leave a comment!
P.S. The flower pictures were all taken in Baldwin Park, Florida, while I was waiting for three of my kids to get out of Lake Baldwin Church youth group on a recent Sunday evening. I am thankful for the beauty I have found in this little congregation.
