1 Come, let us sing for joy to the Lord;
let us shout aloud to the Rock of our salvation.
2 Let us come before him with thanksgiving
and extol him with music and song.
3 For the Lord is the great God,
the great King above all gods.
4 In his hand are the depths of the earth,
and the mountain peaks belong to him.
5 The sea is his, for he made it,
and his hands formed the dry land.
6 Come, let us bow down in worship,
let us kneel before the Lord our Maker;
7 for he is our God
and we are the people of his pasture,
the flock under his care.

Psalm 95:1-7 (NIV)

May your day be so very blessed and your soul touched with the joy for the Lord! 🙂

My roots are buried so deep within the old hymnals and spirituals. My great aunt (who became like my grandmother after my GM died) would whistle them during the day when I was small and sing them in church on Sunday. My whistler is nothing to hers and I can’t sing that great but I enjoy singing. I just hope that God has a muffler for my voice 😀 . I find myself singing many songs written by Fanny Crosby. This is the one on my heart today…  I hope your day is so very blessed!


To God Be the Glory

Verse 1
To God be the glory, great things He has done;
So loved He the world that He gave us His Son,
Who yielded His life an atonement for sin,
And opened the life gate that all may go in.

Praise the Lord, praise the Lord,
Let the earth hear His voice!
Praise the Lord, praise the Lord,
Let the people rejoice!
O come to the Father, through Jesus the Son,
And give Him the glory, great things He has done.

Verse 2
O perfect redemption, the purchase of blood,
To every believer the promise of God;
The vilest offender who truly believes,
That moment from Jesus a pardon receives.


Verse 3
Great things He has taught us, great things He has done,
And great our rejoicing through Jesus the Son;
But purer, and higher, and greater will be
Our wonder, our transport, when Jesus we see.
