What Wondrous Love is This?

We sang this hymn at our Wednesday Lenten service this week.  I found that it originated in Appalachia in the 1800’s and has been described as a “white spiritual.”  The melody is sad and haunting but the words express hope and gratitude.  It sets the correct tone for this meditative season in the church year.
