Sunday Morning


                                           A big man with a big voice
   
                                           he rattled the rafters on Sunday mornings
                                
                                           til I thought Jesus would come down from the cross   
  
                                           I bowed my head in embarrassment
   
                                           for him ... and for my ten year old self

                                          who wanted to jump up beside him and sing

  
                                          How great thou art / How great thou art

  1. Nice one Teresa. "How Great Thou Art" is my favorite spiritual song. No one did it better than Elvis.

  2. I love that song and right after I wrote this, I spent some time driving and singing it wholeheartedly ... would love to hear that man sing it again ... no embarrassment at all ...

    Yes, Elvis did a great version...
