SUNDAY SELECTIONS



After fighting with the computer this morning , I finally won , we pray that today has found you healthy & blessed, never take for granted that you woke up in your right mind, that you were given another day, for life is truly a gift of God but as vapor is gone as suddenly as it appears, so is life, as you go about your day this week whisper a prayer for my cousin Danny who lost the love of his life yesterday that he will find strength & comfort in the Lord

Today's selection is one of my favorites that my choir sings, Amazing Grace, My Chains Are Gone, I thought it was neat that I came across a video that not only plays the lyrics but clips from the movie as well

AMAZING GRACE MY CHAINS ARE GONE

(1)Amazing grace how sweet the sound

That saved a wretch like me

I once was lost but now am found

Was blind but now I see

(2)Twas grace that taught my heart to fear

And grace my fears relieved

How precious did that grace appear

The hour I first believed

(chorus)

My chains are gone, I've been set free

My God my Savior has ransomed me

And like a flood his mercy reigns

Unending love amazing grace

(3)The Lord has promised good to me

His word, my hope secures

He will my shield and portion be

As long as life endures

(chorus 2 times)

The earth shall soon dissolve like snow

The sun forebear to shine

But God who called me here below

Will be forever mine, will be forever mine

You are forever mine

I am so sorry to hear about your cousin's and family's loss. Sending a prayer out to all of you.
When my Mama passed away, almsot a year ago, I asked that this song be read instead of sang at her memorial service. I love it.
Have a nice week!

I enjoyed this very much. Mother passed away 8 weeks ago and I miss her so very much, especially at the holidays and her birthday would be this Tuesday. Thanks for sharing and I hope you have a blessed week.

I'm so sorry for your loss, Helen. You're in my thoughts and prayers as is Dot. I love "Amazing Grace," and it was sung at my father's funeral and my first cousin's.

Sending love your way...
