Jordan’s Hymn
 
Heaven’s voice trolling through the skies
On a secret mission to search out the wise
Who shall be him of worthy and sound?
A man by the name of Jordan so truly bound
 
He sings hymns and lives through the words
Where music is a blend of celestial herbs
He is thrown into lyrics and songs and lyres
As God pushes him into the heat of the fires
 
Volcanoes gently rise and angry waters flatten
The carriage to heaven is a red velvet cushion
Upon white stallions of vim and rousing spirits
Pageantry equipped with diamond studded stirrups
 
Beauty rides on the air of Jordan’s saintly hymn
Rolling streams flow into space as angels swim
Fighters shed their fears as love takes command
Peace becomes a sonnet written upon the sand
 
Jordan became the hymn swallowed up by heaven
Living in the heart and nourished by holy brethren
Pure heart, pure soul, pure air, pure voice
An instrument selected by heaven’s choice
He sang the hymn while beauty gave birth
Then sent him back down to his planet earth
 
“All I have needed, thy hand hath provided
Great is Thy Faithfulness, Lord unto Me.”

While I was watching "The Voice" last night on the T.V., one of the contestants, Jordan Smith, sang the most beautiful rendition of "Great is Thy Faithfulness" that I have ever heard.

It sure was, Charlotte. I never gave that hymn my full attention before like I did that night.
