just heard that the Gaithers are going to be in our area for a concert. I’ve never heard them in person, and I doubt I will for awhile. The tickets are just toooooo expensive! But, I still love their music and have since I was quite young. My kids sigh long and deep when I watch them on TV. I guess this dates me a bit!
I was just listening to one of their songs . . . this one below is one I had forgotten about, but what great, personal lyrics it has.
You’re the love of His heart
Aren’t you thankful?!?!
More Than Ever
by Bill Gaither
I believed that the Lord’s way was best.
I would read in His Word how He mothered the bird
And grieved when it fell from it’s nest.
How I felt His delight when I chose to do right,
And I prayed I would not make Him sad.
We would meet on the way in the cool of the day,
What a pure sweet communion we had.
More than ever I sit at His feet.
All the miles of my journey have proved my Lord true,
And He is so precious to me.The road I have traveled has sometimes been steep,
Through wild jagged places of life.
Sometimes I’ve stumbled and fallen so hard
That the stones cut my soul like a knife.
But the staff of my Shepherd would reach out for me
And lift me to cool pastures green.
With oil of the spirit anointing my wounds,
There I’d rest by the clear healing stream.
Is Love’s Old Sweet Story too good to be true?
Do you find all this hard to believe?
Has the cruel world we live in so battered your heart
That the hurt child inside you can’t grieve?
I can’t say I blame you.
I’ve been where you are.
But all I can say is
You’re the love of His heart,
And the old rugged cross was for you.
