Yesterday, I found a CD I hadn’t listened to in about a year, Passion: How Great is Our God.  You know how when you listen to something for the first time in a long time, it’s almost like a new discovery?  That’s how this was.  And I’m cruisin’ along singing along with the title track & then at the end, it segues into one of my favorite hymns of all time…

O Lord my God, When I in awesome wonder,
Consider all the worlds Thy Hands have made;
I see the stars, I hear the rolling thunder,
Thy power throughout the universe displayed.

Then sings my soul, My Saviour God, to Thee,
How great Thou art, How great Thou art.
Then sings my soul, My Saviour God, to Thee,
How great Thou art, How great Thou art!

When through the woods, and forest glades I wander,
And hear the birds sing sweetly in the trees.
When I look down, from lofty mountain grandeur
And see the brook, and feel the gentle breeze.

Then sings my soul, My Saviour God, to Thee,
How great Thou art, How great Thou art.
Then sings my soul, My Saviour God, to Thee,
How great Thou art, How great Thou art!

And when I think, that God, His Son not sparing;
Sent Him to die, I scarce can take it in;
That on the Cross, my burden gladly bearing,
He bled and died to take away my sin.

Then sings my soul, My Saviour God, to Thee,
How great Thou art, How great Thou art.
Then sings my soul, My Saviour God, to Thee,
How great Thou art, How great Thou art!

When Christ shall come, with shout of acclamation,
And take me home, what joy shall fill my heart.
Then I shall bow, in humble adoration,
And then proclaim: “My God, how great Thou art!”

Then sings my soul, My Saviour God, to Thee,
How great Thou art, How great Thou art.
Then sings my soul, My Saviour God, to Thee,
How great Thou art, How great Thou art!

I actually started crying.  It was a lovely moment between me & my God.  It was like when a couple hears “their” song on the radio, and instantly it brings up memories & they remember why they are in love.  I have those songs with Jesus that are just “ours”.  And it’s very special when they come up unexpectedly on the radio, or on a CD or in church.  It’s like my Lover is sending me a special message, a secret moment of romance.  Do you have a song like that?
