I have two hymn requests today, and I’m happy to post them both. In a little while I’ll explain why.
First, requested by Phoebe, O God, Our Help in Ages Past, written by Isaac Watts, sung by the Sharon Mennonite Bible Institute Singers. Would you believe we used to sing this in high school, for assembly? They don’t praise God in public schools anymore, and America is by far the poorer for it.
I’d never heard this hymn before, but I can’t quarrel with the message: “When you can’t see His hand, trust His heart.” Sung in wonderful a capella harmony by the Sharon Mennonite Bible Institute Singers.
As a chess player who enjoys replaying the games of the masters, I often find myself totally baffled by God’s moves on the chessboard of Creation–baffled because He is God and I am not, and His game is way too high over my head. But all the same, I know they must be the right moves–whether I can understand them or not.
