Ben Topham visited Mississauga West last Sunday and one of his favourite hymns was played. He writes
Considering what has happened on the earth over the past six months – God gently nudged me. The words, the power, the humility, the suffering, the music… it is always moving.
When my love to God grows weak,
When for larger faith I seek,
Then in thought I go to thee,
Garden of Gethsemane.
There I walk amid the shades
While the lingering twilight fades;
See that suffering, friendless One
Weeping, praying, there alone.
When my love for man grows weak,
When for stronger faith I seek,
Hill of Calvary! I go
To thy scenes of pain and woe.
There behold his agony
Suffered on the bitter tree;
See his anguish, see his faith,
Love triumphant still in death!
Then to life I turn again,
Learning all the worth of pain,
Learning all the might that lies
In a full self-sacrifice.
