I am so sorry to hear about your mom. I recall her fondly both from my days at Orcutt Baptist School and also when you and Terri and I were all friends in high school. She was a kind and wonderful person.

You and your family are in my thoughts and prayers.

Oh, How I Love Jesus

Words by Frederick Whitfield; Traditional American Melody
 

There is a name I love to hear,
I love to sing its worth;
It sounds like music in my ear,
The sweetest name on earth.

chorus:
Oh, how I love Jesus,
Oh, how I love Jesus,
Oh, how I love Jesus,
Because He first loved me!

It tells me of a Saviour's love,
Who died to set me free;
It tells me of His precious blood,
The sinner's perfect plea.
(chorus)

It tells me what my Father hath,
In store for every day,
And tho' I tread a darksome path,
Yields sunshine all the way.
(chorus)

It tells of One whose loving heart
Can feel my deepest woe,
Who in each sorrow bears a part,
That none can bear below.
(chorus)
