Out With the Bad News, in With the Good (Today’s Hymn)

Behold, the Mountain of the Lord–old Scottish hymn, sung by Godfrey Birtill…

I tried to sing along with this today,  but my voice cracks and my eyes fill up–not for grief, but for hope and joy. This is the good news: the mountain of the Lord will surely rise. And Jesus Christ shall have His throne on it.

It’s only just 11 a.m., and I’ve already read more bad news than is good for me. It’s only to be expected. Satan’s servants are on their way out, and they will use violence and all lies to keep their place.

But God will do all that He has said He’ll do… and they can’t stop it.
