Take Joy

All thy works with joy surround Thee,
Earth and heaven reflect thy rays,
Stars and angels sing around Thee,
Center of unbroken praise:
Field and forest, vale and mountain,
Blooming meadow, flashing sea,
Chanting bird and flowing fountain,
Call us to rejoice in Thee.

I seem to have this song singing through my mind.  It is the second verse of Joyful, Joyful We Adore Thee and rings as sweetly as it did on my wedding twenty-seven years ago today.  And though I haven’t the pictures to do it justice this week, I will post some gleanings from my vantage point of the week…



Take joy,
“…yet I will rejoice in the LORD;  I will take joy in the God of my salvation.” Hab.3:18
