Thank you Lesley and all of you who have made such appreciative comments. I am reading this at 5:30, "very early in the morning". The full words to this hymn by Anne are on my blog if you would like to sing it too. It would make a great song for an "Easter Sun Rise" service but other times as well. Thanks Lesley and all of you for giving Anne and I such positive feed back. Smile.gifSmile.gifSmile.gif

Wonderful John. I like both the playing and the lyrics. Your thumb strumming is very reminiscent of old time players. Thanks for sharing this.

Both beautifully played and sung, John. Anne's text matches so nicely, too?
