Today is All Saints Day. At church this morning, the congregation remembered friends and family that have passed away this year. Watching the slide show of photos, it's always rough for those who lost someone very dear to them. It's rough for people that have been in their shoes too. Seeing that raw emotion brings everything back to the surface again - hard and fast. I feel for them all, and they will remain in my prayers.
And since Hannah had a dream last night that I died and she was speaking at my funeral, I thought I should share one of the songs I want played at that time. This one always gets to me.
Be Thou My Vision
Written by Mary E. Byrne & Eleanor Hull
Be thou my vision, oh Lord of my heart Naught be all else to me, save that thou art Thou my best thought, by day or by night Waking or sleeping, thy presence my light Be thou my wisdom and thou my true word I ever with thee and thou with me, Lord Thou my great Father, and I thy true son Thou in my dwelling, and I with thee one Riches I need not, nor man's empty praise Thou mine inheritance, now and always Thou and thou only, first in my heart High King of heaven, my treasure thou art High King of heaven, my victory won May I reach heaven's joys, O bright heaven's sun Heart of my own heart, whatever befall Still be my vision, O ruler of all
