This ancient Scottish hymn, Behold, the Mountain of the Lord, is one of my favorites. I don’t know about you, but I need pumping up today. Aunt Joan is in the hospital again, and of course there’s the nooze of the country and the world: If the Lord Our God didn’t give us hope, how would we live?
This rendition by Godfrey Birtill is my favorite. Turn up the volume and sing along. Let the neighbors think you’re crazy.
