SONGS & NOTES:
Ed Ball: The Solid Rock “This moving hymn has the same theme as the beloved Q&A 1. I love the reminder in the chorus that "all other ground is sinking sand." The final stanza mixes hope with holy fear: "When he shall come with trumpet sound, O may I then in him be found." May we all!”
Sally Hiemstra: Surely the Presence of the Lord is in This Place “I love this song because the words describe how worshiping feels to me. “
Sherry Vos: How Great Thou Art “The words to this song help me express my gratitude for God’s beautiful and diverse creation.”
