Yes, I know it isn’t Sunday. But after a day of monitoring the news, I feel the need of a hymn.
This one comes to us courtesy of Weaving Word, a regular reader of this blog. I’d never heard it before, although it’s been around since 1863. Its soothing harmony carries a strong Biblical message.
Like the lady said–when things look bleak, sing louder.
One comment on “Hymn, ‘Before the Throne of God Above’”
After I sent this to you I found out that while the lyrics are from 1863 it has been set to different music over the years. So that may be why you’re not familiar with it. This is the version I love though. They lyrics are so humbling, and the harmonies take my breath away.
