Deal Gently With Thy Servants, Lord

It’s been a weird week.  All over, not just here. And yet, it’s ok.  Big Boss still has to feed the cattle.  Once that’s done, he climbs into his truck and hauls cow manure out of pens.  And while I haven’t cleaned out that closet yet or worked out in the garden as planned, I’ve been plenty busy.  Mainly, cutting out fabric, marking, notching, pleating, ironing…and last step…slapping those babies into a new fangled, fancy schmancy embroidery machine that spit out face masks.  Well, at that point, they have to be trimmed, turned and ironed but once you finish with the machine, you’re all done but the singing!  And just 100 or so to go…

But…the Good News is that God is in control!

Which brings me to one of my favorite spirituals that I mentioned earlier

It’s from the album, “The American Vocalist” and is titled, “Deal Gently With They Servants, Lord”.  Click on the grey cloud to the left, which will take you to the Sound Cloud site.  Then click on the grey sound waves to play the song. OR click on the orange circle with the arrow.  🙂 I find the song comforting.  I hope you do too!

    When this song – Revelation 4:8b-12
    “Day and night they never stop saying:
    “‘Holy, holy, holy
    is the Lord God Almighty,’[b]
    who was, and is, and is to come.”
    Whenever the living creatures give glory, honor and thanks to him who sits on the throne and who lives for ever and ever, the twenty-four elders fall down before him who sits on the throne and worship him who lives for ever and ever. They lay their crowns before the throne and say:
    “You are worthy, our Lord and God,
    to receive glory and honor and power,
    for you created all things,
    and by your will they were created
    and have their being.”
    is finished, you can make your request for “Deal Gently…”
