  2. This is a great song! I believe that a group called the Newsboyz (I have a teen aged brother :cool ) also sings this on one of their CD's. The lyrics are beautiful. :clap:

We use the Ambleside Online free curriculum (http://www.amblesideonline.com)...this covers our: Bible, History, Literature, Poetry, Artist Study, Composer Study, Hymns, Natural History, and more.
