"And in that Light of Life I'll walk, till traveling days are done."

This hymn has become a favorite 
for the beauty of the words by Horatio Bonar and the Kingsfold tune. 
It is beautifully sung here in a grand and glorious church building, but it does not require all that formality. 
You can sing it in a choir robe or a bathrobe! 
Be encouraged!~





I heard the voice of Jesus say, “Come unto Me and rest; Lay down, thou weary one, lay down Thy head upon My breast.”
I came to Jesus as I was, weary and worn and sad;
I found in Him a resting place, and He has made me glad.
I heard the voice of Jesus say, “Behold, I freely give
The living water; thirsty one, stoop down, and drink, and live.”
I came to Jesus, and I drank of that life giving stream;
My thirst was quenched, my soul revived, and now I live in Him.
I heard the voice of Jesus say, “I am this dark world’s Light;
Look unto Me, thy morn shall rise, and all thy day be bright.”
I looked to Jesus, and I found in Him my Star, my Sun;
And in that light of life I’ll walk, till traveling days are done.

Extended Doxology

I learned this Doxology at a young age when I went as a guest with my neighbor and her family to "Our Redeemer Lutheran Church". I always thought my friend, Brenda said we were going to "R" Redeemer. Later when I realized it was "Our" Redeemer, a light came on! I liked being there and I looked forward to the lovely Doxology and wanted to be ready to stand and sing! Sometimes it felt abrupt. Here is an extended instrumental version:

Praise God, from Whom all blessings flow;
Praise Him, all creatures here below;
Praise Him above, ye heavenly host;
Praise Father, Son, and Holy Ghost

"When the sun turns traitor cold"

Urge For Going

"I awoke today and found the frost perched on the town It hovered in a frozen sky, then it gobbled summer down When the sun turns traitor cold  and all the trees stand shivering in a naked row I get the urge for going but I never seem to go


I get the urge for going
When the meadow grass is turning brown
Summertime is falling down and winter is closing in" Joni Mitchell
(If you view this in a Reader, you may need to go to actual blog to hear Joni's song…)
