Day 7- Favorite cover of your favorite song.

By far one of my favorite songs, "I Stand Amazed".    I have loved it since I was a little girl and we would sing it so often in church.     I had a routine of songs that I sang to my boys every night after I read their books to them and this was the first song I would sing to them.        Bart Millard included this song on his album "Hymned Again" and every time I hear it I have to play it at least twice.

If you have never read the words to "I Stand Amazed" I thought I would include them.  I couldn't write a better testimony if I tried.

I stand amazed in the presence of Jesus the Nazarene, and wonder how he could love me, a sinner, condemned, unclean.

How marvelous! How wonderful! And my song shall ever be:
How marvelous! How wonderful is my Savior's love for me!

For me it was in the garden he prayed: "Not my will, but thine."
He had no tears for his own griefs, but sweat-drops of blood for mine.

In pity angels beheld him, and came from the world of light
to comfort him in the sorrows he bore for my soul that night.

He took my sins and my sorrows, he made them his very own;
he bore the burden to Calvary, and suffered and died alone.

When with the ransomed in glory his face I at last shall see,
'twill be my joy through the ages to sing of his love for me.

That's a nice thing to do, singing after reading to your sons.

My mom use to sing, but it was in Japanese and we couldn't understand a word of what she was saying....

Our Bible study praise leader introduced "Hymned" and "Hymned Again" last year.

Thanks for highlighting 'em.

So nice to be reminded of the old hymns. We often forget them in today's churches!
