Midweek Hymn: Let the Lower Lights Be Burning

When I was a little kid, we didn’t have a TV and my parents would play music while I fell asleep on the couch, my mom, the violin, my father the piano. This was one of the hymns I remember them playing. It must have been from their parents’ generation it’s so old. You can find the words, which are very touching, at https://hymnary.org/text/brightly_beams_our_fathers_mercy.

Midweek “Hymn”

Lakewood congregants are so wonderful to work for because they joyfully allow me to incorporate secular music in worship. 18th Century Moravians and English Methodists were known for their use of popular tunes in church music so it’s an honorable tradition.
