Hymn of the day

by Richard on February 21, 2016

A change from Wesley today…
Now thank we all our God, with heart and hands and voices,
Who wondrous things has done, in whom this world rejoices;
Who from our mothers’ arms has blessed us on our way

Wide as infinity;
So wide, it never passed by one,
Or it had [...]
