Sunday Hymns - Depth of Mercy

Depth of mercy can there be
Mercy reaching even me
God the Just His wrath forbears
Me the chief of sinners spares
So many times my heart has strayed
From His kind and perfect ways
Making clear my desperate need
For His blood poured out for me

Give me grace Lord let me own
All the wrongs that I have done
Let me now my sins deplore
Look to You and sin no more
There for me the Savior stands
Holding forth His wounded hands
Scars which ever cry for me
Once condemned but now set free

Sunday Hymns - How Precious is the Book Divine

How precious is the book divine,
by inspiration given;
bright as a lamp its pages shine
to guide our souls to heaven.

It sweetly cheers our fainting hearts
in this dark vale of tears;
life, light and joy it still imparts,
and quells our rising fears.

This lamp shall guide our steps aright
and cheer us on our way,
till we behold the clearer light
of an eternal day.

Divine Instructor, gracious Lord,
be thou ever near;
teach me to love thy sacred Word
and view my Savior there.

-Words, verses 1-3: John Fawcett, 1782;

verse 4: Anne Steele, 1760

Update on Bob DeWaay - Praises!

Bob just got home a little while ago, after receiving his Rituxan infusion. They gave him Benadryl and steroids by IV first to help reduce side effects from the infusion. It was a 5 1/2 hour infusion but he tolerated it very well. They purposely did a slow infusion to avoid side effects, it does however have long lasting effects, the number one concern is the inability for him to fight off infections. It will be awhile before we know if it worked, but it did before and this is a much higher dose so hopefully it will bring the Churg Strauss under control and help his lungs to function better.

Thank you everyone for your prayers. God is so faithful and we trust in His sovereignty. Our times are in His hands. No better place to be!!!
