A Beautiful Sunday Song

Before the Throne of God Above

So, Sunday is almost over...but I wanted to share a beautiful song that my daughter passed along to me tonight.

Elizabeth is at Illinois State University in Normal, Illinois, and she loves the church she's attending there--Calvary Baptist.

My daughter loves music, and she was so excited that this song was sung as a congregational hymn at her church this morning.

It sounds like one of the beautiful songs written and performed by Keith and Kristyn Getty (who call themselves "modern hymnwriters"), but it's actually very old.

A quick Google check told me that the words were written by Charitie Bancroft in 1863, while the music was written by William Bradbury (who also composed the tune to "Jesus Loves Me") in 1861.

Here it is, sung beautifully by Selah. Hope you had a blessed Sunday!

That's one of my favorite songs to sing in church. It's been a while, so maybe we'll sing it again soon... Usually our songs fit with the pastor's message. Thanks for sharing!
