God Leads Us Along

There are so many great hymns that we just don't seem to hear any more. Some have simply been removed from hymn books. Others have been revised so as to make them less "offensive." We sang one a couple of weeks ago that I had not heard in years.
In shady, green pastures, so rich and so sweet,
God leads His dear children along;
Where the water’s cool flow bathes the weary one’s feet,
God leads His dear children along.

Some through the waters, some through the flood,
Some through the fire, but all through the blood;
Some through great sorrow, but God gives a song,
In the night season and all the day long.
"God Leads Us Along," by George A. Young, 1903
What? 1903? How can a song written in 1903 be relevant? But then again, the Bible is much older than that, and there is nothing more relevant today than the Scriptures.

I welcome your comments. However, since this is a blog rather than an open forum, I will determine what is and what is not posted. All comments, especially anonymous comments, will be scrutinized carefully. I will not post comments that contain profanity or are negative toward the Scriptures, God, Christianity in general, Christian schools, or the United States of America. I also will not post comments that are nothing more than generally uninformed or absurd opinions. In addition, I will not post comments that are totally irrelevant to the subject being discussed. Finally, I will not post comments that are commercial advertisements or advertisements for religious organizations which are in conflict with my biblical convictions.
