I should just have my husband record it. I searched youtube last night to no avail. The words were there, but the tune was all wrong.
“I Heard the Voice of Jesus Say” is the hymn we’re currently working on as a family. Yep, we’re those people. I often wonder what the neighbors think when it’s dark outside and we can’t see out, but they can see in, or when the windows are open to let in those few and far between summer chills.
On Wednesdays they can see us waiving our arms to “Father Abraham” or tumbling down at the end of “Only a Boy Named David” or even standing up and sitting down alternately to “Praise Ye the Lord.” That one is especially fun when one of the boys in our family is holding Youngest Daughter.
That’s all good stuff and my children especially enjoy those Wednesday evening devotions. I like the other nights. The ones that have us singing a hymn chosen by Seth. This one I love, but for the life of me I cannot find it for you to hear.
If anyone would want to record themselves singing hymn #699 out of the Lutheran Service Book and then post it online, so I could put it here, well, that would be great.
Until then, I’ll just be singing it in my head.
