Sunday, April 6, 2014 - Fifth Sunday of Lent

This wonderful hymn of Charles Wesley's has been referred to as the "United Methodist National Anthem."  As printed in the United Methodist Hymnal of 1989, it is the first hymn included.

                              "O for a thousand tongues to sing

                                      my great Redeemer's praise,

                                the glories of my God and King,

                                     the triumphs of his grace!"

                                                                      - Charles Wesley, 1739

The Mission Focus from the 2014 United Methodist Women Prayer Calendar for today is the Red Bird Missionary Conference in Beverly, Kentucky.

Have a blessed Sunday.


  1. Have a wonderful Sunday Nellie!

  2. Have a blessed Sunday! Thanks for your nice comments on my blog posts. I appreciate each and every one. xo

  3. I LOVE this hymn, too! The Wesleys left us quite a legacy of sermons and songs to enhance our Christian walk, and I'm thankful for their dedication to their Lord. Have a wonderful afternoon, Sister! :-)

  4. This is a favorite hymn. I was pianist in the Baptist church I grew up in.
    We are getting ready to move, so I am away from the blog for now.

    God bless your week.

  5. I love this hymn. One of the things that is so hard for my husband is the churches out here mainly do worship music. We both prefer music that you can sink your teeth into. Like that hymn.
