‘In the Sweet By and By’

I went out on my bike early this morning, and something about the quality of the light, I guess, brought this hymn to mind–and lovely days with much-loved people who are in this world no more–that, and God’s promise, which only God can perform, to renew and restore His whole creation, and to regenerate it in perfection.

In the Sweet By and By was written in 1868 by Sanford Bennet and Joseph Webster, performed today by Nathan and Lyle and friends and family in Denton County, Texas.

    Another great old standby. Have you heard Terry Macalmon’s “Holy are you Lord”? It was very popular about 12 years ago, but still good.
