That song in my head

You know how you get song stuck in your head? Sometimes it drives you insane because you really don't like the song, but it just won't go away. Other times it is a song you really like and you are glad it is there. Well, until it has been stuck for days on end and everytime you turn on the radio they are playing it.

Sometimes the song is a calming, peaceful place that is like a balm of Gilead to your heart and soul. Today I have had one of those songs stuck in my head and I just wanted to share.

My computer is still having issues and needs to go back in so I can't listen to any clips to find a good one, so listen here, I know this one works.

Jesus the Very Thought of Thee

Jesus, the very thought of Thee, With sweetness fills my breast; But sweeter far Thy face to see, And in Thy presence rest.

No voice can sing, no heart can frame, Nor can the memory find A sweeter sound than Thy blest name; O Savior of mankind!

O Hope of every contrite heart, O Joy of all the meek; To those who fall, how kind Thou art! How good to those who seek!

But what to those who find? Ah, this no tongue or pen can show; The love of Jesus, what it is None but His loved ones know.

Jesu, our only joy be Thou, As Thou our prize wilt be; Jesus, be Thou our Glory now, And thru eternity.



Indeed.

Such a beautiful song. There's an incredible rendition of it on a Winter's Solstice CD my mum has. So uplifting.
