To fall in love with God is the greatest of all romances;
to seek Him, the greatest adventure;
to find Him, the greatest human achievement.

Surpassing all we know

I meant to post this yesterday, but forgot. In choir here we are now learning a song I've already sung with my beloved high school Chorale! It was either my sophomore or junior year, I can't remember. Probably junior. The words are so beautiful, I thought I'd share it with you. If ever I can get my hands on our recording of it, I will be sure to share that, too! (I'm pretty sure we did record it.)

Pilgrims' Hymn
Music composed by Stephen Paulus, Text by Michael Dennis Browne

Even before we call on Your name
To ask You, O God,
When we seek for the words to glorify You,
You hear our prayer;
Unceasing love, O unceasing love
Surpassing all we know.

Glory be to the Father,
And to the Son,
And to the Holy Spirit.

Even with darkness sealing us in,
We breathe Your name,
And through all the days that follow so fast,
We trust in You;
Endless Your grace, O endless Your grace,
Beyond all mortal dream.

Both now and forever,
And unto ages and ages,
