These days I am spending alot of time sitting with my dear father-in-law. During the day he is in and out, so we just sit to be with him, to hold his hand, to get him something...to let him know he is not alone. I find myself reading alot more of my bible these days, and sometimes just sitting with my hymn book singing along in my mind. Here is one that has meant alot to me lately...
For very love, Thy sacred name A thousand times a day.
O Jesus, Lord, with me abide;
I rest in Thee, whate'er betide;
Thy gracious smile is my reward;
I love, I love Thee, Lord!
2.I love Thee so I know not how My transport to control;
Thy love is like a burning fire Within my very soul.
3.For Thou to me art all in all; My honor and my wealth;
My heart's desire, my body's strength, My soul's eternal health.
4.Burn, burn, O love, within my heart,
Burn fiercely night and day, Till all the dross of earthly loves
Is burned, and burned away.
5.O light in darkness, joy in grief, O heaven's life on earth;
Jesus, my love, my treasure, who Can tell what Thou art worth?
6.What limit is there to this love? Thy flight, where wilt Thou stay?
On, on! our Lord is sweeter far Today than yesterday.
