I'm always mindful of the power of significant hymns - not always great poetry, sometimes lousy theology - associations with places and people and moments. I've always felt that all hymnody carries authenticity, if only for its writer - and sometimes that is all it needs to be.

Thanks for sharing this hymn - it has a much needed gentleness in matters charismatic.


Great hymn. And the mention of condensed milk reminds me of washing day when I was a child. I was given a condensed milk sandwich, and I sat on the back step, watching Mum turning the mangle, as she sang all the old hymns!
