Hoping To Make A Difference

I have a guess as to who that is. But am not sure?
Hey you! Thanks for stopping by. This is a song Gloria Gaither wrote 27 years ago. It is performed by Bill Gaither (the older guy), the group Signature Sound, and Guy Pinrod (the one with long, silver hair).
I should have known. I saw the Gaithers live 10 or 15 or so years ago.
I really enjoy the Gaithers' show which airs on one of the Christian tv channels here. I can't remember the name of it but it's the Gaither Gospel Hour or something like that.The Gaithers were here in November, but we did not go to see them. We might have had we known about it in time, but then again maybe not. We're not much for concerts.
The hiatus ends?A nice way to begin the Lord's Day - with the Gaither's. Forgiveness and a call to love one another such a logical flow. "Your hallowed O name may I bear it with honor." Very powerful!I like that the lyrics are streamed at the bottom of the video.The tune reminds me of "We rest on the Thee" which may have been sung by Jim Elliot, Pete Fleming, Ed McCully, Nate Saint, and Roger Youderian prior to their martyrdom.
Leo said, "Your hallowed O name may I bear it with honor." Very powerful!"Amen and Amen! I love the entire song, but I really like the last verses about the Glory of God and bearing His name with honor.I'm not familiar with the hymn? you referred to.I would say that I'm still on semi-hiatus and I've recently been venturing out to read theology blogs again and have found some new ones that I really like and intend to add to my blogroll.
Dawn,Here is a href=" http://www.cyberhymnal.org/htm/w/e/r/wereston.htm ">link< /a> to We Rest on Thee. Same tune as the Gaither song. The lyrics had a powerful effect on me as a young Christian.
Thanks for the link, Leo. I will try to get there soon to have a listen.
