Do you ever have lyrics of songs stick in your head but can’t remember which song?
(I know, growing older does that to us sometimes.)
At home, when I play the piano and sing, it is as unto the Lord. I ask Him to help my inadequacies and that it may be a blessing to anyone who hears – not my playing; for I merely play by ear but that they will recognize the song and sing along if only in their hearts.
As I was playing a few minutes ago, I saw a verse in a song we often sang in Church at Colonial Baptist Church in Blue Ridge, Virginia when I was a teenager. In fact, on Sunday nights when our song leader, Haynes Spickard asked for favorites, we all knew that Mr. Drain would raise his hand and request this song. It is taken from Psalm 23.
Do you know what hymn this verse is from? I will give you a hint. It was written by John W. Peterson and Alfred B. Smith. If you recognize the song, please comment below.
“He restoreth my soul when I’m weary, He giveth me strength day by day; He leads me beside the still waters, He guards me each step of the way.”
