Re: Lord of the Dance

Re: "In times like these..."

Thank you so much for your comments, Ed. It's always thrilling when a family member of a hymn writer visits, especially a hymn as iconic as this one.

If you have any stories behind how your grandmother came to write this amazing hymn we'd love to hear them! :)

God bless,
Steve
