This morning on my way back from South Bend, I decided to listen to a little Mormon Tabernacle Choir to get into the Sunday spirit. The flight departed at 5:50 am, and the I watched out the window for a good part of the flight. The sunlight was peaking over the horizon and looked spectacular.
I was listening to Mo-Tab’s “Love is Spoken Here” album, and was lulled into a drowse. The familiar strains of Hymn 113, “Our Savior’s Love” began, and the my eyelids felt ablaze. I looked out the window as the words “Our Savior’s love shines like a sun with perfect light:” sounded, and the sun rose above the horizon. It was the most beautiful sunrises I’ve seen in a long time. I immediately was embraced by a feeling of peace and love. I knew that it was a direct manifestation of my Jesus Christ’s love for me. I’ve been struggling with a variety of trials that has been affecting my happiness greatly. In that moment I felt that all was alright with the universe. His love shines like a sun with perfect light.
Our Savior’s love shines like a sun with perfect light
As from above, it breaks through clouds of strife
Lighting our way, it leads us back into his sight
Where we may stay to share eternal life
The Spirit’s voice of goodness whispers to our hearts
A better choice than evil’s anguished cries
Loud may the sound of hope ring till all doubt departs
And we are bound to him by loving ties
Our Father, God of all creation hear us pray
In rev’rence awed by thy Son’s sacrifice
Praises we sing, we love thy law we will obey
Our Heav’nly King, in thee our hearts rejoice
