O GLORIOUS LOVE!



O GLORIOUS LOVE!

In my darkness Jesus found me,
Touched my eyes and made me see.
Broke sin's chains that long had bound me,
Gave me life and liberty.

Chorus
O glorious love of Christ my Lord, divine
That made Him stoop to save a soul like mine!
Through all my days and then in heav'n above,
My song will silence never,
I’ll worship Him forever
And praise Him for His glorious love.

O amazing truth to ponder-
He whom angel hosts attend.
Lord of heav'n , God's Son what wonder!
He became the sinners friend.

Repeat chorus
O glorious love of Christ my Lord, divine
That made Him stoop to save a soul like mine!
Through all my days and then in heav'n above,
My song will silence never,
I’ll worship Him forever
And praise Him for His glorious love!

Tag
And praise Him for His glorious love.
And praise Him for His glorious love.

An Unforgettable Experience

"This picture speaks to me of an unforgettable experience that came orchestrated by God alone. I was in an acoustically perfect auditorium fashioned in the trees, with rushing water as the background accompaniment, for a song that was being rendered by a small bird delivering a heavenly solo to an audience of one."

I am often reminded of this experience I had in Northern Alberta a few years ago. I was alone walking toward a waterfall when I just had to stop and listen to this bird. The area where I took this picture was so quiet, away from the many people who were visiting this beautiful area. I couldn't mistake this little *bird for anything else but a messenger from God. What a moment, definitely "orchestrated by God alone."

Six years ago I was in Southern Saskatchewan visiting the old farm where I grew up. As I drove up an old dusty gravel road a bird came and flew right along side of my vehicle, about 5 feet away from my side mirror. It must of flew along for at least a half mile before it flew off. At the time I knew it wasn't just a coincidence. It was another moment, definitely "orchestrated by God alone."

*The bird in the photo is the actual one I heard singing so beautifully that day!
