One that I learned as a girl, one that we used to sing in church.
One that was written by a man my parents knew and bound in a little hymnal with others that had been written by members of the congregation.
So it is one that only a handful of people may know.
HT calls it "Mercy" but that is not the title of the hymn. It's called "Tell Me of Jesus".
And I have been singing it to HT since I first held him in my arms.
I was reading the blog of a friend a year or so ago and noticed that she had an Etsy shop. That's when I discovered that she had a hidden talent. A talent with pen and paper. She was selling hand made cards in her shop with hymns that she had drawn on the front covers.
It took some doing but I found that little hymnal and I asked her to make me a picture.
When HT saw it and asked me what it was and I told him it was "Mercy" his eyes got all wide and he asked excitedly if we could hang it in his room.
I was happy to oblige.
"Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly
in all wisdom,
teaching and admonishing one another
in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs,
singing with grace in your hearts
to the Lord."
