Sheep Fold Quilt Block and a Song for Sunday

 
 
Crown Him with Many Crowns
 
Crown Him with many crowns,
The Lamb upon His throne:
Hark! how the heavenly anthem drowns
All music but its own!
Awake, my soul, and sing
Of Him who died for thee,
And hail Him as thy matchless King
Thru all eternity. 
 
Crown Him the Lord of love:
Behold His hands and side -
Rich wounds, yet visible above,
In beauty glorified.
No angel in the sky
Can fully bear that sight,
But downward bends his wondering eye
At mysteries so bright.
 
- Matthew Bridges, 1852 and Godfrey Thring 1874

  1. I know there are many who love the loud and repetitive modern songs, but to me, these have stood the test of time for a reason. Stunning sky pictures too!
