Great Is Thy Faithfulness (Live 5-18-14)

I sang and played yesterday at the funeral of a great man in our church, Bob Conover. This was recorded live using the piano in the sanctuary First Church of the Nazarene in Springfield Ohio. It was such an honor to be asked to honor Bob by singing to the God who was so faithful to Him in life and now in death. Bob had to bury two children and a wife during his time here on earth but never wavered in His faith. As He reunited with his family that went before him I’m sure they are singing a song similar to this one, experiencing Jesus in a way none of us yet have proclaiming, “Great is Thy faithfulness Lord unto me.”

Blessings,

Rick Lee James
