+’Light of the World’

The only excuse I have for posting this hymn umpteen times is, I love it: Light of the World by Charles Wesley, performed (18th century style) by Maddy Prior and the Carnival Band. I’m really sorry they took down the video that used to go with it.

The “+” in front of the title was a typographical error which I thought it better to let stand–as a cross.

    I like this hymn, too. Another one you might consider is: Hold to God’s Unchanging Hand. When I woke this morning at 3:30AM, the first line of this song was running through my mind. I hadn’t heard it in years, but suddenly, there it was.

    Yes, I do that sometimes. Part of getting old, I think. I have a friend who turned 98 on March 24 and she says she has nights of no sleep at all.
    I sure hope I don’t get to that point.

    Yes, I’m sure you are right. Try some political “news”. that should do it.
