Imagine with me this morning that you are singing in church and you are wide awake and truly glad that you are there. You are alive both physically and spiritually because of God’s grace. You are appreciative to Him for all He has done and forgiven in your life. You hear the piano, organ, guitar, trumpet, french horn, flute, and saxophone mix with the voices of the music team. The congregation seems to be singing louder and with more emotion too. You are offering praise to your heavenly Father who also is the God of all creation. What a joy to be praising Him.

Stay faithful and hopeful,

Bill (a fellow-servant)

Romans 15:13; Psalm 50:23

John 1:14

“And the Word became flesh and dwelt among us, full of grace and truth; we have beheld His glory, glory as of the only Son from the Father.”

 

“Fairest Lord Jesus”

From Munster Gesangbuch, 1677

1.      Fairest Lord Jesus, ruler of all nature,

Son of God and Son of Man!

Thee will I cherish, thee will I honor,

Thou, my soul’s glory, joy, and crown.

2.      Fair are the meadows, fair are the woodlawns,

Robed in the blooming garb of spring:

Jesus is fairer, Jesus is purer,

Who makes the woeful heart to sing.

3.      Fair is the sunshine, fair is the moonlight,

And all the twinkling, starry host:

Jesus shines brighter, Jesus shines purer

Than all the angels heav’n can boast.

4.      Beautiful Savior! Lord of the nations!

Son of God and Son of Man!

Glory and honor, praise, adoration,

Now and forever more be thine.
