A short hymn, after reading 1 Thessalonians 3. Verses 11-13 are quite striking. There are two more chapters to go, and Brother Paul is so keyed up with joy that he launches into a blessing and prayer for the Thessalonian believers.
In the lyrics below, I picture a congregation singing the words before a service’s benediction.
For now we really live,
when we stand firm in the Lord!
How can we thank our God enough?
Each testimony is joy.
The good news of our faith,
good news of mutual love:
cause to pray each night and day
that we may meet again.
Now may our God and Father himself
and his Son clear the way!
