Day 14: Monday Melody

Teen with huge book project due dibs the computer yesterday, so maybe we should consider this "As many days as possible".  It's the best I can do; roll with it if you will!
I woke up this dark Monday with an old hymn on my heart, one I haven't heard in years.  I used to sing it to my girls as a lullaby, and it came unbidden to my memory as I pray for a week more full of love and joy in Christ than this past one.

There’s within my heart a melody
Jesus whispers sweet and low,
Fear not, I am with thee, peace, be still,
In all of life’s ebb and flow.


Jesus, Jesus, Jesus,
Sweetest Name I know,
Fills my every longing,
Keeps me singing as I go.


All my life was wrecked by sin and strife,
Discord filled my heart with pain,
Jesus swept across the broken strings,
Stirred the slumbering chords again.


Feasting on the riches of His grace,
Resting ’neath His sheltering wing,
Always looking on His smiling face,
That is why I shout and sing.


Though sometimes He leads through waters deep,
Trials fall across the way,
Though sometimes the path seems rough and steep,
See His footprints all the way.


Soon He’s coming back to welcome me,
Far beyond the starry sky;
I shall wing my flight to worlds unknown,
I shall reign with Him on high.


Jesus, Jesus, Jesus,
Sweetest Name I know,
Fills my every longing,
Keeps me singing as I go.

Today I want to feast on the riches of His grace.
Following,
Ginger
