The book of Genesis offers us so many vast topics from which to choose a theme hymn. As we are starting at the very beginning, I would like to give praise to our Creator of heaven and earth in singing
Hymn 320 – Lord of Creation and
Hymn 2 – All Creatures of Our God and King. The stories that follow creation will lean back toward our amazing God and what He has done for each of us in creation.
It appeared )in the first part of the week’s study) that Jacob and others needed to be asking
O for a Faith – Hymn 533, a faith that will not shrink at any time, or under any circumstances.
Wednesday shows the blessings that were given by God with the miracles in Genesis 29:31 and Genesis 30:22 when He “opened her womb”:
Hymn 111 – It Took a Miracle. After Judah was born Leah could sing
Praise God From Whom All Blessings Flow – Hymn 694/695.
It wasn’t until after Jacob was deceived by Laban, that he would sing:
Hymn 533 – O for a Faith that will no shrink, and
Hymn 523 – My Faith Looks Up to Thee. It is then that we are able to sing of the great faith that has been learned in
Hymn 304 – Faith of Our Fathers and
Hymn 602 – O Brother, Be Faithful.
God’s abundant blessings this quarter as we study through the first book of the Bible which our gracious God has given. May we be faithful and all say “Come, Lord Jesus, come – very soon” so we are able to go to our new home in Heaven, as
We Have This Hope – Hymn 214.
To learn unknown hymns, you will find the accompaniment music for each one at: https://sdahymnals.com/Hymnal/
Another great resource is for when there is a hymn you wish to sing, but can’t find it in your hymnal. Go to https://www.sdahymnal.org and in the search bar type a special word in that is in the hymn. I am sure you will be amazed at the help you will be given.
2 Timothy 2:15 KJV – “Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.”
