Stacy Hakanson, Flute

Jesus, keep me near the cross,

there’s a precious fountain;

free to all, a healing stream

flows from Calv’ry’s mountain.


In the cross, in the cross

be my glory ever;

till my ransomed soul shall find

rest beyond the river.

Near the cross I’ll watch and wait,

hoping, trusting ever,

till I reach the golden strand

just beyond the river.

Music Monday for 9/21/2020 – “Siyahamba”

As today marks the last day of summer and tomorrow, September 22, 2020 marks the first day of fall, we already notice each day the sunlight struggling to break forth in the morning and yawning earlier and earlier in the evenings. Even while the daylight hours dwindle more quickly as we make our way toward the winter solstice, we never stop Marching in the Light of God!

Enjoy this festive arrangement of SIYAHAMBA: We are Marching in the Light of God, by John Carter as God’s light burns constant and bright in our hearts.
