By The Reverend Dr. Katie Snipes Lancaster
What hymns live inside you these days? Can you summon tune and text to mind without a bulletin in your hand or a hymnal by your side? I find myself humming “Immortal, invisible, God only wise,” which might be proof of my church-nerd status, but I also think it’s testament to the hymn’s timelessness. Whether you’ve escaped to a vacation spot, taken a trip to visit family, or are nearing acclimation to working from home and constant social distancing, I hope there’s a hymn in your heart, one at least, that you carry with you throughout this impossible season.
Let us pray:
Immortal, invisible, God only wise,
in light inaccessible hid from our eyes,
most blessed, most glorious, the Ancient of Days,
almighty, victorious, thy great name we praise.
—Walter C. Smith 1824–1908
