Todd Saunders Sings a Blessed Song
He sings and plays piano. He posts his songs. I told him about one of my favorite songs. It is so powerful. He was nice enough to compose some music and sing it and publish it to his blog! Here is the most powerful stanza of the song: (the entire lyric is listed at his blog.)
Could we with ink the ocean fill,
And were the skies of parchment made;
Were ev'ry stalk on earth a quill,
And ev'ry man a scribe by trade;
To write the love of God above
Would drain the ocean dry;
Nor could the scroll contain the whole,
Tho' stretched from sky to sky.
Those words are so powerful they bring tears to my eyes. I wish I could write something like that. God is holy, just and loving. In our tolerant and politically correct society, we Christians sometimes feel pressed to emphasize His holiness and justice more than His love... to counter balance our culture. However, we must never forget how very loving He is. If we think we love people.. if we have any capacity for mercy and benevolence... how small it must be compared to that of our loving Creator.

Thanks, Todd! :~)
