Like a River Glorious

IMG_2069 kootenay river morning fog

Like a river glorious is God’s perfect peace,
Over all victorious, in its bright increase;
Perfect, yet it floweth fuller every day,
Perfect, yet it groweth deeper all the way.

Stayed upon Jehovah, hearts are fully blest
Finding, as He promised, perfect peace and rest.

-Frances Ridley Havergal

Today I am thankful for female hymn writers of the past, women who, like Miriam the prophet, found a way to raise their voices in praise through song.

  1. The photo!! Glorious scene! And how strongly that name reminds me of my precious Mother. She often spoke of Frances Ridley Havergal and other hymn writers and told us their stories. The hymn is also full of beautiful memories or worship in out tiny Brethren Assembly meetings singing A capella.
