I Stand All Amazed

Our Sacrament hymn today was “I Stand All Amazed.”

It’s not one of my favourite hymns; I don’t find the melody catch, nor do I find the lyrics poetic. Nevertheless, it often touches me; it rather than enlightening my mind, it often pierces my heart.

Today, I noticed at the top of the page in the hymnal, it suggests singing the hymn thoughtfully. I tried to do just that today. A few thing stuck out to me.

At times, I do seem confused at how unconditionally Jesus extends his grace to me despite my ongoing effort to conduct myself in a way that distances me from the Spirit. I do marvel that he rescues a soul so rebellious and proud as mine.

I doubt I praise and adore at the mercy seat. I doubt I sing of his goodness and mercy.

Thinking about this hymn while singing it really underscored how far I still have to go.
