I hadn’t heard this hymn for awhile; we sang it yesterday morning at worship and it stuck with me. The lyrics are so uplifting! (Isn’t it funny how sometimes something you’ve heard before – maybe even many times before – can sing out in a different way?)
The chorus is paired here with an image of sunrise off the New Hampshire coast.
To those who say that hymns are old fashioned relics which ought to be permanently retired, I respectfully disagree.
Is Shakespeare no longer worth reading, or Beethoven irrelevant? Just because something is old doesn’t mean it has no relevance.
Whether it’s praise music or hymns, guitars or organ, fully orchestrated or a capella…whatever style of music you use to praise God, I’m sure He appreciates and enjoys hearing it. Sing out!
