“I received the guitar on a Sunday night. Monday morning (with strong coffee nearby) I unzipped the case, took it out and began noodling. It smelled of fresh pine and varnish-so good! The cats sniffed at it too. I thought an open C tuning might be fun but it wasn’t. When back to regular old tuning and found myself writing this simple hymn. I worked on it all day with a break for a walk. By just past midnight, the song was pretty much completed. It’s fun to sing especially when I imagine an audience singing along. By the way, the first two lines of the last verse come from Corinthians 13:12. Hope it lifts your spirits.”
