‘Thy Word is a Lamp unto My Feet’

Today’s a grey and dreary day, so let’s juice it up with a song of praise.

Generally I much prefer old hymns to new Christian music. But those old hymns were new once, weren’t they? Thy Word is a Lamp unto My Feet is taken from Psalm 119–that’s the big huge long one in the middle of your Bible–and here performed very nicely by Amy Grant.

And anyhow, it ain’t as new as it once was–and I’ve loved it since I first heard it some years ago.

    El Shaddai is another one of my favorites from Amy Grant. Not so new either, but still good.

    There is some very nice praise and worship music out there today. This is one of them, and I agree with weavingword – El Shaddai is another one.

    How is your aunt doing, Lee? Hopefully your visit yesterday found her in good health and good spirits.

      Well, she wasn’t doing all that well yesterday, she didn’t speak. But of course that was no worse than she was doing in her apartment for the past two years. Thanks for asking.

    Sorry to hear that. It’s difficult when we feel unable to help, but I’m sure she appreciated your visit. And, fortunately, for us Christians, we know that God is in control.
