Monday Musings

    One of the things that I love about the Lenten season and Easter is some of the old hymns that speak so poignantly about the sacrifice of our Savior. Take, for example, the song, “O Sacred Head Now Wounded”. Here’s a few stanzas of lyrics:

    O sacred Head, now wounded,
    With grief and shame weighed down;
    Now scornfully surrounded
    With thorns, thine only crown;
    O sacred Head, what glory,
    What bliss till now was thine!
    Yet, though despised and gory,
    I joy to call thee mine.

    What language shall I borrow
    To thank thee, dearest Friend,
    For this thy dying sorrow,
    Thy pity without end?
    O make me thine for ever;
    And should I fainting be,
    Lord, let me never, never
    Outlive my love to thee.

    Isn’t that beautiful! By the way, one of my favorite artist for singing some of these old classics is a guy by the name of Fernando Ortega. He has a rich voice and puts a beautiful Latin spin on the music.

    The Oilers are in the playoffs again. Yeah! Sharon and I have been reminiscing about how much we enjoyed the last playoff run. I use the word reminiscing deliberately as it was more than 10 years ago. Sigh! Whatever the case, the post season is here again. I think we went to a different house party for every game. Every second car on the road has an Oilers flag on it and the whole city was buzzing. It was so much fun. Here’s to another great run. Make sure to enjoy the ride.
