Hymn Challenge

I have completed the last two hymn challenges that Patter Cross has posted on her blog. Hymn #6, for March 11, was "Savior, Like a Shepherd Lead Us." Patter has a link to a Youtube video by Todd Agnew; it's wonderful, I hope you'll play it. Here is Patter's link:

"Keep your flock from sin, defend us, seek us when we go astray." Such beautiful words!  Dorothy A. Thrupp is thought to be the author of these words. She lived in London, and was one of 15 children.  She lived from 1779-1847. Here is my version of the 5x7 inch page:

And Hymn #7 is The Love of God. Frederick Lehman, the author of this hymn, was born in Germany in 1868 and pastored churches in Iowa, Indiana, and Missouri. You can read more of the story on Patter's blog, and also be sure and connect to the wonderful rendition by Mercy Me. You will be blessed!
I used BoBunny Timepiece papers, 7gypsies papers, ribbons, embellishments by Recollections, Tim Holtz Antique linen Distress Ink and EK Success punch.
