I have recently been fighting through losing my father. He has been in the hospital for about two weeks. As I thought about some of the great hymns and songs that have brought me peace during hard times in the past…I came to a realization. These songs didn’t meet my needs any more. “Peace like a river”…not enough. “Sorrows like sea billows”…if only. This song came from a desperation to be knocked down by the greatest gifts my God has to give. So. Hear my heart. And echo its cry. And God…above all. Overwhelm me.
