My Life Hymn

This is in response to Michele’s  challenge to post the song or hymn that moves us most.  It’s hard to choose, and I’m sure this month I’ll be posting others, but this one has been a favorite for a long time, and it speaks to me and calls me to Christian action. At times it brings tears to my eyes.  It actually has a very similar them to “Here I Am” which was Michele’s pick.  I’ve talked before about my life verse, so I guess I’d say this is my life hymn.

  1. Here is the Hymn of Promise that I mentioned. It is available on YouTube for anyone who would like to hear it, but the words themselves are powerful.

    In the bulb there is a flower;
    in the seed, an apple tree;
    in cocoons, a hidden promise:
    butterflies will soon be free!
    In the cold and snow of winter
    there’s a spring that waits to be,
    unrevealed until its season,
    something God alone can see.

    There’s a song in every silence,
    seeking word and melody;
    there’s a dawn in every darkness
    bringing hope to you and me.
    From the past will come the future;
    what it holds, a mystery,
    unrevealed until its season,
    something God alone can see.

    In our end is our beginning;
    in our time, infinity;
    in our doubt there is believing;
    in our life, eternity.
    In our death, a resurrection;
    at the last, a victory,
    unrevealed until its season,
    something God alone can see.

  2. Nancy, this is beautiful. I especially like the refrain — “unrevealed until the season, something only God can see.” It’s amazing sometimes how all the events in our lives contain those seeds of things we can’t even imagine at the time, but are known and planned by God.
