Thoughts Divine in Human Speech

THE OLD HYMNS
by
Rev. Lawrence Keister

Hymns are cups of consolation
Placed by God within our reach;
Wings of worship and salvation,--
Thoughts divine in human speech.

Through the years they oft befriend us--
Is there not a constant need?
Hidden manna kindly lead us,
While for unity we plead.

Live the hymns and learn to sing them,
In the school of God's free grace;
Spirit-led to others bring them
As and angel face to face.

Sing the hymns that live for ages,--
Sing their music and their truth,
As each one your heart engages,
Youth is yours, eternal youth.
Rebecca's post about favorite childhood hymns reminded me of this poem by Rev. Lawrence Keister.
