“Seek ye the LORD while He may be found, call ye upon Him while He is near: Let the wicked forsake his way, and the unrighteous man his thoughts: and let him return unto the LORD, and He will have mercy upon him; and to our God, for He will abundantly pardon.” – Isaiah 55:6-7
G’day! Byron the Quokka here–and that’s me, jumping up to collect another comment on the way to No. 50,000. We have only 589 left to go! And whoever posts Comment No. 50,000 will win an official and bona fide Quokka T-shirt. And may even be voted an honorary quokka, if we decide to risk it.
This is the kind of hymn that makes simpering liberal go-along-to-get-along churchmen cringe: The Son of God Goes Forth to War: written in 1812 by Reginald Heber, sung here by Joe Stout. It can also be sung to the tune of The Minstrel Boy.
Let’s not forget that Jesus Christ is King of kings, whose right it is to rule. And the sooner He claims it and establishes His throne, the better.
