With all this h…

With all this hubbub about the new PCUSA hymnal (people care more about their hymns than almost anything) I would like to state, for the record, that my current favorite hymn is Blessed Assurance…

favorite lyrics are “o what aforetaste of glory divine” communion (and baptism)! “echoes of mercy, whispers of love” (again, what we experience here are a foretaste of full mercy and love) “Perfect submission, all is at rest I in my Savior am happy and blest” Submission, not losing myself but finding myself, perfect and restful, in Jesus.

And of course “this is my story, this is my song, praising my savior all the day long” I live to praise! And my best, favorite forms of praise are in stories and song (esp. that story part for me)

Note: Former favorite hymns were “Holy, Holy, Holy” “Seek Ye First the Kingdom of God” “Somebody’s knocking at my door” “Here I am Lord”

Hymns YAY
