Favorite Friday

So, my friend Sara Jo (see Moss' link under friends) and I decided to make every Friday "Favorite Friday" and we will both answer the same question about a favorite. This week's question I came up with and it is "What is your Favorite Sunday Morning Worship Song?"

I talked to my husband about this and he said that was a hard question because you usually find a new one each week. It seems every Sunday you start singing a song and say "OH yeah, I forgot about that one..."

Anyway, I did not realize how much time I would need to think about this when I came up with the question. I have narrowed it down to two. I kind of consider one an old one and one a newer one. Neither are really new. I think I just think of them that way because of when I heard of each of them for the first time. SO, Sara Jo, don't be mad that I ruined it the first Friday we did it but I am going to have to say two of them. Chris says this isn't fair but oh well.

The Old Rugged Cross by George Bennard 1913
On a hill far away stood an old rugged cross. The emblem of suffering and shame; And I love that old cross where the dearest and best, for a world of lost sinners, was slain. So I'll cherish the old rugged cross, Till my trophies at last I lay down; I will cling to the old rugged cross, And exchange it some day for a crown.

His Grace Reaches Me by Whitey Gleason 1964
Deeper than the ocean and wider than the sea is the grace of the Savior for sinners like me; Sent from the Father and it thrills my soul, Just to feel and to know, That His blood makes me whole. His grace reaches me, yes, His grace reaches me, And twill last thru eternity; Now I'm under His control and I'm happy in my soul, Just to know that His grace reaches me.
