On Our Way Rejoicing

“‘Love the Lord thy God with all thy heart and thy neighbor as thyself’;  and then go on thy way.  The way in which God shall lead thee may be over rocks and deserts, over mountains and oceans, amid things perilous to the sight and the touch;  but still go on thy way rejoicing.”  Thomas Upham

This quote from my devotions today reminded me of the hymn, “On Thy Way Rejoicing” by John S. B. Monsell (1811-1875).  Monsell was the chaplain and rector of a number of churches in Ireland and England and wrote over 300 hymns.  Now I can’t get this uplifting song out of my mind (not a bad thing), so I’m sharing it with our readers.
