He loved me ere I knew Him,
And all my love is due Him.
Why that became such a vivid memory escapes me.
At the end of sophomore year, the Lord worked circumstances in such a way that I joined a different church. In so doing, I naturally lost touch with Gary and his wife. School and church kept me busy, while they were building a family and serving in their church. But every now and again, especially when I'd hear that song, I'd think of Gary singing, and of their kindness to me.
A few days ago, a mutual friend told me that Gary, after suffering a heart attack, had gone to sing his song of victory in heaven. I thought it fitting, therefore, to share "Victory In Jesus" as this week's song of praise.
