Turning in for the night and this song has been on my heart all day. So I thought that I would just leave you this, before I turn in. Wishing you all a safe evening and praying God's protection throughout the night. God Bless.
PS: Say your prayer's before you go to sleep.

Blessed assurance, Jesus is mine!
Oh, what a foretaste of glory divine!
Heir of salvation, purchase of God,
Born of His spirit, washed in His blood.
This is my story, this is my song,
Praising my Saviour all the day long;
This is my story, this is my song,
Praising my Saviour all the day long.

Perfect submission, perfect delight,
Vision of rapture now burst on my sight;
Angels descending bring from above,
Echoes of mercy, whispers of love.
This is my story, this is my song,
Praising my Saviour all the day long;
This is my story, this is my song,
Praising my Saviour all the day long.

Perfect submission, all is at rest,
I in my Saviour am happy and blessed;
Watching and waiting, looking above,
Filled with His goodness, lost in His love.
This is my story, this is my song,
Praising my Saviour all the day long;
This is my story, this is my song,
Praising my Saviour all the day long.


Your sister in Christ Jesus

I love that song also. It brings me such peace. Four years ago tonight I was sitting by my mom's bed as she was dying. She died just after midnight. I wouldn't have picked Halloween as the day she went to be with the Lord, but just not my call. Earlier in the day dad went for a drive and prayed and told God he was ready for her to go home. We had an antique angel above her bed. My mom has collected antique dolls all her life. Dad called it the Angel of the Lord. When she passed away I went up to tell my dad, I woke him up and said, "The Angel of the Lord took mom home." Dad just said, Thank you God.
Somehow those old hymns give me such peace....
