Some days are harder than others, this is just a reality. Yesterday I began my day with Ray and the men's group and after I left there my heart was missing my family. (church). So when I got home I went out to my garden and set my phone to play the old hymns. Boy there are some powerful reminders of our journey with God. One song in particular jumped out at me and I would like to share it with you. I pray you enjoy it as well.
This ancient hymn reminds us that our victory is already won and the Lord brings light to our path, even in dark times like these. And in the version I heard the singer ended it with many Amens. "It is so" YES, it is so we have already gained victory and even in times like these our God is with us. How great is our God. Let us all rejoice!
Below are the words followed by a link. Enjoy and know we are together as one, always.
Be Thou my Vision, O Lord of my heart
Naught be all else to me, save that Thou art
Thou my best Thought, by day or by night
Waking or sleeping, Thy presence my light
Be Thou my Wisdom, and Thou my true Word
I ever with Thee and Thou with me, Lord
Thou my great Father, I Thy true son
Thou in me dwelling, and I with Thee one
Riches I heed not, nor man's empty praise
Thou mine Inheritance, now and always
Thou and Thou only, first in my heart
High King of Heaven, my Treasure Thou art
High King of Heaven, my victory won
May I reach Heaven's joys, O bright Heav'n's Sun
Heart of my own heart, whate'er befall
Still be my Vision, O Ruler of all. Amen
