Sing Unto The LORD

Lily Among Thorns Song of Solomon 2:2 In the Last Days 2nd Peter 3:3

Memories, Chapter 1, Pages 47, 48

I happily stood up along with the sparse congregation of a dozen or so people, and always fond of the acoustics in our little church in unison we began singing the opening hymn.

I Wonder As I Wander

Written by John Jacob Niles,

In The Year Of Our Lord, 1933

I wonder as I wander out under the sky. How Jesus, the Saviour, did come for to die. For poor, ornery people like you and like I, I wonder as I wander Out under the sky

When Mary birthed Jesus, twas in a cows stall,With wise men and farmers and shepherds and all. But high from God’s heaven a star’s light did fall, And the promise of ages, It did then recall.

If Jesus had wanted for any wee thing: A star in the sky, or a bird on the wing; Or all of God’s angels in heaven to sing, He surely could have had it, ‘Cause He was the King!

I wonder as I wander out under the sky, How Jesus, the Saviour, did come for to die. For poor, ornery people like you and like I, I wonder as I wander Out under the sky.

I then resumed to take my seat and looked forward to hearing the pastor begin his sermon.

Author’s Commentary

The character Lily expressing her love for the Lord in song and verse. She happily sings praises unto the Lord God with the insight of knowing as it is written in 1st John 4:9, In this was manifested the love of God toward us, because that God sent his only begotten Son into the world, that we might live through him.

Lily delights in communing with the Father God in song, and lifting up her voice in praise knowing in her heart there is none the reason to hide evermore as it is written in  Genesis 3:8, And they heard the voice of the Lord God walking in the garden in the cool of the day: and Adam and his wife hid themselves from the presence of the Lord God amongst the trees of the garden.   

In faith Lily cheerfully sings unto the Lord within the depths of heartfelt gratitude for being reconciled to Father God as it is written in Romans 5:10, For if, when we were enemies, we were reconciled to God by the death of his Son, much more, being reconciled, we shall be saved by his life.

The whole creation rejoices in unison for the love of God, of which Lily is a part. She joyfully expresses her love beaming brightly in song with the blessed assurance  she is forevermore welcome in the cool of the garden to come boldly in the presence of the Lord as it is written in Hebrews 4:16, Let us therefore come boldly unto the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy, and find grace to help in time of need.
