Lord of the Small

The ladies ensemble is singing this Sunday and I can't get the song out of my head (which is probably a good thing, since I need to memorize it by Sunday). The song is called "Lord of the Small" and not only is the music beautiful, but the lyrics are so comforting and convicting at the same time.

Praise to the Lord of the small, broken things,
Who sees the poor sparrow that cannot take wing.
Who loves the lame child and the wretch in the street,
Who comforts their sorrows and washes their feet.

Praise to the Lord of the faint and afraid,
Who girds them with courage and lends them His aid:
He pours out His Spirit on vessels so weak
That the timid can serve and the silent can speak.

Praise to the Lord of the frail and the ill
Who heals their afflictions or carries them till
They leave this tired frame and to paradise fly,
To never be sick and never to die.

Praise Him, O praise Him, all ye who yet live,
Who’ve been given so much and can so little give,
Our frail, lisping praise God will never despise.
He sees His dear children through mercy-filled eyes.

Lyrics by Johanna Anderson

Have you ever been faint? Afraid? Frail? Ill?

Have you ever needed comfort?

Have you been given so much you could never repay it?

There's something in this song for everyone, just like God is sufficient for every need. I can't wait to share it with our church family!

His timing is so perfect :) I was reading the verse about being afraid and plane flew over! What an encouragement to read those words at that moment. Thanks for posting them, I can't wait to hear the music too.
