In the morning, when the dew drops glisten
When your heart feels Jesus; stop and listen;
He’s the glory of the sunshine; the glory of my life;
It is He who comforts, when there is strife.


Jesus is our victory for tomorrow; He blesses us today
He’ll always be with us when sin comes our way.
He’s our Redeemer; He saved my soul one sweet day
As, I went down to the Altar; knelt to Pray.

Thank Thee God, that you saved our sinful soul;
By Thy only Son divine; thank Thee for giving us a goal.
Lead us my Father, by Thy Son who, loves us so
So where ere in life He goes; let us also go.

He is our tomorrow; He is our bright and shinning star
He’s Lord of Heaven and earth; Lord, be not from us far.
Let us look unto the hills and watch for the light;
That light that cometh unto our hearts; so bright.

Help us Lord, to recognize that morning; bright and clear
Let us forever hold His love to our hearts; near
Blest we'll be, at His soon coming; let us hold fast
The love we have for our Savior; let it forever last.

Here's where my mind when when I saw the topic

Early one morning,
Just as the sun was rising,
I heard a maid sing,
In the valley below.


CHORUS: Oh, don't deceive me,
Oh, never leave me,
How could you use
A poor maiden so?


Remember the vows,
That you made to your Mary,
Remember the bow'r,
Where you vowed to be true,


Chorus

Oh Gay is the garland,
And fresh are the roses,
I've culled from the garden,
To place upon thy brow.


Chorus

Thus sang the poor maiden,
Her sorrows bewailing,
Thus sang the poor maid,
In the valley below.


Chorus

And there goes Spike all bad again.

Where's the glurge? No command to forward this on if you believe in Jeebus. No "Let's see Satan stop this one!!!111!" No advice to take the meaning in the poem and let it rule your life or anything. It's just a poem. A bad poem it may be, but that does not make it glurge.

I started singing "Down on the Corner" by C.C.R.

"[Early]In the morning, when the dew drops glisten
When your heart feels Jesus; stop and listen;
He’s the glory of the sunshine; the glory of my life;
It is He who comforts, when there is strife.
"

Maple"Down on the corner, I love Jesus too
He is the Messiah, so tell me, why don't you?"Leaf

It's glurge, all right. It's just generic, no-frills glurge.

Ok, I'm with NZUL, I don't see this as brain melting glurge, more like a poem/prayer they teach to little kids in Catholic school. Not that bad or offensive. Ok, it's not exactly Shakespeare, and the line "He is our bright and shinning star" has me scratching my head ("Shinning"?), but still, I don't get why it's in glurge, either.

Awww! Signora, that made me think of my childhood, and how awesome it was to just be a kid, and...I'll stop now. I don't know why but that song is just adorable.

With a stethoscope, because your heart should feel a steady series of contractions and relaxation. If your heart feels Jesus, it may be time to see a cardiologist.

He’s the glory of the sunshine;
George Hamilton?
the glory of my life;
It is He who comforts, when there is strife.

Jimmy Carter? An anger management specialist?


Jesus Oh!
is our victory for tomorrow; He blesses us today
He’ll always be with us when sin comes our way.

Does he want some? I understand he's without sin. I can't think why else he'd hang around whenever it shows up.
He’s our Redeemer; He saved my soul one sweet day
We're basically coupons to him.
As, I went down to the Altar; knelt to Pray. And... we have bad punctuation!

Thank Thee God, that you saved our sinful soul; Using the royal we, apparently, as the soul is singular.
By Thy only Son divine; thank Thee for giving us a goal. He DOES care what football team wins. Those three points made all the difference.
Lead us my Father, by Thy Son who, loves us so
So where ere in life He goes; let us also go.

There are those punctuation problems again.

He is our tomorrow; He is our bright and shinning star
He’s Lord of Heaven and earth; Lord, be not from us far.

We don't want any bright stars closer to us than 1 AU.
Let us look unto the hills and watch for the light;
That light that cometh unto our hearts; so bright.

The cosmic radiation that scours Earth of life.

Funny, it made me think of :

quote:
When the morning skies grow red

And o'er us their radiance shed,

Thou, O Lord, appeareth in their light.

When the Alps glow bright with splendour,

Pray to God, to Him surrender,

For you feel and understand,

(repeat)

That He dwelleth in this land.

(repeat)

Swiss national anthem.

Glurgy AND patriotic, eh ?


PS: my second thought was :

It's difficult to think of Jesus with morning wood or a hangover. This glurge hardly applies to young adults.
