“Let my soul now rest, I am in your hands; all my future and my past. As the things of earth grow strangely dim, all will come to light at last.”
Take Heart is a fine example of meeting yourself with a Gospel charge. While we are suffering, the truth is critically important and most difficult to discern. In worship, it is crucial that we are honest about the way we feel, our desires, and our misguided wanderings. Only from that place should we preach the unwavering Good News to ourselves. For we do not want to honor God with our lips while our hearts remain far away. Take Heart encourages us to bring our whole selves, the parts we’re proud of as well as the parts we wish we could change, and offer living sacrifices to God. May this song comfort and encourage you.
