Sunday Inspirations 6.12.16


 

Joyful, joyful, we adore Thee, God of glory, Lord of love;
Hearts unfold like flowers before Thee, opening to the sun above.
Melt the clouds of sin and sadness; drive the dark of doubt away;
Giver of immortal gladness, fill us with the light of day!
~ 1st verse of the Hymn of Joy by Henry J. van Dike
This is one of my favorite hymns; it's the one tune my son learned to play on the piano as a young lad and could probably still play even now, if he had opportunity. Brightly colored lilies always bring the Hymn of Joy to my mind and I can't help but sing it as I tend to my little flower bed.
