Ordained Praise, Part 3

"How firm a foundation, ye saints of the Lord, Is laid for your faith in His excellent word. What more can He say than to you He hath said to you who for refuge to Jesus have fled."

These words are one of the earliest memories of my childhood. From the time I was a very little girl my precious grandmother, Anne Fuller Anderson, would sing this and other of the great old hymns. The melody would drift throughout the rooms of her small house along with the delightful aroma of the country breakfast she was preparing. My senses were awakened: the smell aroused my body--the sound of the song stirred my young soul.
