Depending on where you are right now, you may want to sing along.
William Williams, 1745; tr. Peter Williams 1771
Tune: CWM RHONDDA (188.8.131.52.D.)
John Hughes, 1907
Now that's a hymn that really should be more than three verses long. Actually, there are two more, but I don't think anyone uses them. The three we know fit together quite well, recounting a journey both earthly and spiritual, while the other two verses are more general in nature.
Notice that everyone is actively engaged in singing (maybe the non-singers are sitting way in the back, out of camera range). Too bad that not every congregation sings like this one - I hope that yours is more like this than not.
Slow week at the blog - not many birthdays or other commemorations in the first part of July. This works out well because I will be traveling next week, though I do hope to post a little bit (one very significant birthday next week at least). Things should pick up later in the month.
