I just had to share the pictures I recently took from my back yard. Everyday I am blessed to sit at my dining room table and feast my eyes on the changing colors of fall. The words I shared are actually an old hymn written back in the 1800’s by a man named Henry Ironside, so it is now public domain and legal to post without permission.
Yes I love hymns, psalms, and spiritual songs! I love contempary music and southern gospel, and even a little bit of bluegrass unless its too twangy! I love the older hymns because they share some eternal truths about God that are sometimes missing in contemporary music. In the meantime, God often fills my heart and mind with songs I learned in the past…. I love it when He puts a song in my heart!
Overshadowed – Words by Henry Ironside
How desolate my life would be,
How dark and drear my nights and days,
If Jesus’ face I did not see,
To brighten all earth’s weary ways
I’m overshadowed by His mighty love
Love eternal, changeless pure.
Overshadowed by His mighty love
Rest is mine, serene, secure.
He died to ransom me from sin,
He lives to keep me day by day,
I’m overshadowed by his mighty love,
Love that brightens all my way.
