Coram Deo

I will return to the homeschooling series soon. I have been truly swamped with life, work, and schooling; and not doing any of them well this week. You know the saying, "Jack of all trades, master of none." Well that would be me this week. I found in the drawer of my messy desk the song lyrics below. It is by one of my favorite artists that does mostly children's music; but children's music with depth. Her name is Judy Rogers and one of her songs that meets my heart where it is currently at, is below.


 


Coram Deo (Before the Face of God)


 


Coram Deo, wherever we go, we live before the face of God


Waking, sleeping, living, breathing, we live before the face of God


If I should take the wings of the morning, Or dwell beneth the darkest sea


Coram Deo, His hand will guide me, He will abide with me!


Coram Deo, Sola Christo, by Jesus' righteousness alone


And the gift of faith... Sola Fide, I am in Christ by faith alone


His grace alone has wrought salvation, and not the works that I have done


Sola Gratia...Soli Deo Gloria...Glory to God alone!


I will rejoice in your commandments--And by your Spirit will obey


Your Holy Word alone--Sola Scriptura, will lead me all my days!

Amen, Kate. He's all we need. And the best thing is....He's everything.

Thanks for visiting my blog. I'm glad you enjoyed it. I love Judy Rogers, but have not heard of this song. I will have to try to find it. I really enjoyed yours as well. I love the paintings you used. William Bougeureau? I really need to take the time to figure out how to personalize mine a little more.
