Okay, so Q and Z are about the only 2 letters in the alphabet that I couldn’t find an astronomy related memory verse for. In fact, I couldn’t find one for any of our creation themes the past few years so I just keep recycling this one over and over. It’s a verse worth knowing well!
This Week’s Memory Verse: Q is for…
“Quicken me after thy lovingkindness; so shall I keep the testimony of thy mouth.” Psalm 119:88
Hymn of the Week: “The Love of God” (Lehman/Mays)
The love of God is greater far than tongue or pen can ever tell,
It goes beyond the highest star, and reaches to the lowest hell;
The guilty pair, bowed down with care, God gave His Son to win;
His erring child He reconciled and pardoned from his sin.
Oh love of God, how rich and pure! How measureless and strong!
It shall forevermore endure, the saints’ and angels’ song.
Could we with ink the ocean fill, and were the skies of parchment made,
Were every stalk on earth a quill and every man a scribe by trade;
To write the love of God above would drain the ocean dry;
Nor could the scroll contain the whole, tho stretched from sky to sky.

I’ve wondered before what your Bible was opened to in this pic… Joel? Titus? 1 Samuel? 2 Samuel? Or Psalms?! Good ‘ol farm life… no Internet tonight! I’m looking at the pic on my little phone. Love the words of that hymn. What a great “mind movie” as we call them at our house. Drain the ocean dry!
Always start the day with Psalms! I can hardly ever sing this hymn without crying. One of my all time favorites. I guess “mind movie” is the 21st century equivalent to “word picture?” I love it! Also, in case you’re wondering, Titus is the Ukelele player, not me. Another little treasure in that picture is the little illustrated red children’s hymnal called “Our Hymns of Praise” which I picked up from Rod and Staff Publishers. It’s full of “smallish” hymns perfect for little hearts. Lot’s of “mind movies” in there! And yes, the cup of coffee is 100% Kona. 🙂
There are countless memories of this hymn in my life. My favorite memory of this song was a former pastor singing the words with tears (and gusto at 80 plus years). However, this current post replaces it – – because it is passed on to the next generation – – oh how we cherish that our grandsons are learning these truths! Thanks Julie!
Which pastor was that?
