" prone to wander

Lord i feel it

prone to leave the God i love.

here's my heart, o take and seal it, 
 seal it for Thy courts above."



{ a line from one of my favorite hymns (come thou fount

What a great thing to remember tonight. Oftentimes we feel like we can't stray but we are so weak and we need Him every day to take our hearts.

Thank you Jesus! (And you for reminding all of us!)

i can't sing this song without crying. ever. even (especially) when i sang it at my brother's wedding earlier this year. it is ABSOLUTELY one of my favorite hymns.

That's one of our favorites too... Linnea loves it. The theology and poetry of the hymn is breathtaking. Where was that photo taken? For some reason I'm thinking Montana...

That's me and my sister's favorite hymn too...I always loved the second phrase, "...tune my heart to sing they praise" because I play violin. I have to be intentional about praising God, and make sure my life is in tune with His Word if I am to really truly be able to praise Him.
