There are a few hyms that will make me tear up: "Amazing Grace", "Eagle's Wings", "Here I Am, Lord" and "Silent Night" at a candlelit Christmas Eve service are some of them.
Well, we recently sang a hymn in church that caused me to choke up: "I Was There to Hear Your Borning Cry". I have resonated with its lyrics of middle age but, this verse jumped out at me last week:
"If you find someone to share your time and you join your hearts as one,
I'll be there to make your verses rhyme from dusk 'till rising sun."
And I do feel that our verses rhyme and our hearts are joined as one. For this, I am truly blessed.
