‘He Leadeth Me’

A Sunday morning, late in the spring. All green, all flowers. This is the hymn you hear them singing in the church. You stop to listen. And Jesus Christ Our Lord, through the voices of His people lifted in song, through the sunshine shimmering on the pond beside the church, through the green of the landscape and the blue of the sky, through the Holy Spirit stirring in your heart so that you feel it in your throat–He takes you by the hand, and He Leadeth Me. I have no idea who’s singing this, but it has deeply moved me.

    “The steps of a righteous man are ordered by the Lord.” And we are righteous only by our faith in Christ’s righteousness. “He who knew no sin became sin for us that we might be made the righteousness of God.” 2 Cor 5:21.
