Our music this Sunday

 hymnsHymn: “Great is Thy Faithfulness” 

Thomas Chisholm wrote 1200 poems and hymns during his lifetime.  He sent several to his friend William Runyan, who was especially moved by this one, and prayed for special guidance in composing the music.  Although the hymn was composed in 1923, it remained relatively unknown until popularized around the world by George Beverly Shea and the choirs at the Billy Graham Crusades in the mid-twentieth century.

Hymn: “Take My Life and Let It Be” 

During her relatively short life of 46 years, Frances Ridley Havergal learned Latin, Greek and Hebrew, and memorized the Psalms, the book of Isaiah, and most of the New Testament. She composed more than 80 hymns.  In 1873, Francis had a dramatic personal spiritual experience in which she realized the importance of complete surrender to God. Soon thereafter, she was visiting a home in which 10 people lived, several of whom were unconverted or uncommitted Christians. Frances prayed “Lord, give me all this house.” Before her stay had ended, all those in the household had committed their lives to Jesus. On the last night of her visit Francis was too excited to sleep – It was then and there she wrote the lyrics to “Take My Life and Let it Be.”
