I Need Thee

This 21st-century video version of a hymn from 1872 is, for me, what all great sacred music should be: timeless. It was first sent my way by a vicar named Bart Loos, a young man who shares the love of God in remarkably winsome ways every day. It came back to me this weekend at the opening of the worship service Leann and I participated in during out Icktank Weekend in Monroe, WA. Listening to the words this morning my mind goes both forward and back: back to the days when my very formal grandmother used to say “I love thee.” And forward to the busy fall season that all the young families around me are facing with their homework and soccer and festivals and the impending end to daylight savings time. May this give them——and each one of us——some much needed comfort and peace.

    • I’m so glad it spoke to you. I’ve been in a season of needing to listen to this a lot lately myself. May He lift us up and carry us forward in His time.
