Sunday–My Favorite Hymn

This photo was taken today.  Isn’t it a treasure?

Mr. Ryan shares our Scottish heritage, and knows how to look the part.  He also always appreciates it when my girls are dressed up. 

As I was leafing through our Hymn Book today, I came across my favorite hymn.  I hope you enjoy it.

Child of GOD, by CHRIST’S salvation,

Rise o’er sin, and fear, and care–

Joy to find in every station

Something still to do or bear;

Think what SPIRIT dwells within thee–

Think what FATHER’S smiles are thine–

Think that JESUS died to win thee–

Child of GOD wilt though repine?

. . .

Haste thee on from grace to glory,

Armed by faith and winged by prayer,

Heaven’s eternal day’s before thee,

GOD’s right hand shall guide thee there;

Soon shall close thine earthly mission,

Soon shall pass thy pilgrim days,

Hope shall change to glad fruition,

Faith to sight, and prayer to praise.

–rebecca

P.S.  repine = to complain.
