This Is The Day

Ailz is sitting her exam today.

So I greeted her first thing with a jolly Christian chorus called "this is the Day". All that was lacking was the tambourine.

This is the day, this is the day
That the Lord has made, that the Lord has made
We will rejoice, we will rejoice
And be glad in it, and be glad in it....

She complained that this wasn't an Olney hymn (The 18th century Olney hymns by Cowper and Newton are course texts) so I changed gear and sang her "How Sweet the Name Of Jesus Sounds". 

It's 20 years since I last sang it and I still know nearly all the words. 

Til then I shall thy love proclaim
With ev'ry fleeting breath
And may the music of thy Name
Refresh my soul in death.
