Blessed Assurance

I got to attend a little concert with Mom at PV that was put on by some of the choir members of Calvary Baptist Church. She loves music and loved listening to the hymns that they sang. The song "Blessed Assurance" has always been one of my mom's favorite hymns and the choir director asked that the audience sing along. My mom can't sing anymore because she doesn't know words, but I know she remembered the tune. As she sat next to me on the sofa and tapped her foot to the beat, I held her hand and sang the words to her. As I sang, I prayed that she would be "watching and waiting, looking above, filled with His goodness, lost in His love."



















Perfect submission, all is at rest,
I in my Savior am happy and blest,
Watching and waiting, looking above,
Filled with His goodness, lost in His love.

Refrain:
This is my story, this is my song,
Praising my Savior all the day long;
This is my story, this is my song,
Praising my Savior all the day long.
(Blessed Assurance)
