So, yeah. I haven’t blogged in a while because my log in page has been stupid…. and I lack the motivation.

This past week I went to school for two periods on Monday and I haven’t been since. Why? You may ask…. well, There’s like… nine inches of snow outside my doorstep. Three of the alotted four snow days of the years have happened this week. And monday I went home sick because the nurses can’t give me enough meds to make the pain go away (grrrrr…..)

Yeah, so right now I’m going through some really icky relationship things… Seriously, my views on high school relationships are reinforced… most retarded thing you can do in high school. Because high school boys are way to immature to take friendship seriously, much less a romantic relationship. Unfortunately, you can’t undo the damage of a relationship gone bad, and I’m languishing with a broken heart. Really it’s all my fault…. I”m healing, slowly but surely.

So, I’ve been listening to old hymns and I really don’t understand why we don’t sing these everywhere. Here’s a list of the ones I”m talking about along with links to Lyrics.
All Hail the Power of Jesus’ Name
Amazing Grace
Battle Hymn of the Republic
Be Thou my Vision
Blessed Assurance
Faith of our Fathers
Holy, Holy, Holy
I surrender All
In The Garden
It is Well
Nothing But the Blood
O for a Thousand Tongues to Sing
Onward Christian Soldiers
Rock of Ages
Take my life and Let it Be
Turn your Eyes Upon Jesus
What a friend we have in Jesus
When I Survey the Wondrous Cross

I am thankful to Chris Tomlin and all them who have re-popularized hymns to some extent, but I find it disheartening that whenever these songs are recorded they’re either changed musically(I hate that!!!!) or they’re only singing one or two of the verses and leaving out the best ones. It’s annoying. anyway, enjoy the lyrics and hopefully you’ll end up bawling like I did.

    Be Thou, My Vision. Possibly my favorite song ever.
    I especially like
    “Riches I heed not, nor man’s empty praise,
    Thou mine Inheritance, now and always:
    Thou and Thou only, first in my heart,
    High King of Heaven, my Treasure Thou art.”

    And I’ve loved “In the Garden” since I learned of it–when I discovered that it was Great-Grandma’s favorite song.

    You missed Grandpa’s Favorite song, and one I’m particularly fond of too. On Christ the Solid Rock

    But yes, I love hymns too. So many of those that have stood the test of time have done so because they are theologically rich, heart-rendingly honest, and absolute art.
