I Really Needed That Hymn This Morning

I am still struggling with the virus ... in fact could only stay for one service this morning as I had woken up coughing early in the morning, and just couldn't stop. So decided to go home after service#1 so I could both snooze, and so others could actually hear what was going on!!

Still it was good as they had 2 of my favourite hymns ("And, Can It Be") as well as "Everlasting Love". That hymn was one I needed as I had been feeling emotionally low over the last few days ... my regular "lonely" feelings ... but the hymn reminded me that whatever else, I have a great eternal relationship with God.


Loved with everlasting love, led by grace that love to know;
Gracious Spirit from above, Thou hast taught me it is so!
O this full and perfect peace! O this transport all divine!
In a love which cannot cease, I am His, and He is mine.
In a love which cannot cease, I am His, and He is mine.

Heav’n above is softer blue, Earth around is sweeter green!
Something lives in every hue Christless eyes have never seen;
Birds with gladder songs o’erflow, flowers with deeper beauties shine,
Since I know, as now I know, I am His, and He is mine.
Since I know, as now I know, I am His, and He is mine.

Things that once were wild alarms cannot now disturb my rest;
Closed in everlasting arms, pillowed on the loving breast.
O to lie forever here, doubt and care and self resign,
While He whispers in my ear, I am His, and He is mine.
While He whispers in my ear, I am His, and He is mine.

His forever, only His; Who the Lord and me shall part?
Ah, with what a rest of bliss Christ can fill the loving heart!
Heav’n and earth may fade and flee, firstborn light in gloom decline;
But while God and I shall be, I am His, and He is mine.
But while God and I shall be, I am His, and He is mine.

I hope that you all had a great weekend ... and are looking forward to Monday tomorrow!
