Sentimental Sunday #28, The Broadman Hymnal

Hi Lovelies!
Here we are again at Sentimental Sunday, where we all meet up to share what we are sentimental about this week.
I hope you have had a great week and stopped to smell the roses.  I am going to share a beautiful hymnal
that was a gift from my grandmother ( my father's mother).  This hymnal was very special to her because it is from the church she went to as a child.  I am honored to have it and it always stays on our piano.  There are days when I sit and read the lyrics of my favorites, these are the days I wish I could still play but that was a long time and many sleepless nights ago.


This edition was printed in 1940 and contains 503 of the greatest songs ever written.  My favorite by far is #190
 Come, Thou Fount



The last line pictured gets me every time...
Let Thy goodness, like a fetter, Bind my wandering heart to thee:

Because my heart is prone to wander and if it were not for the goodness of my Savior I would have no hope. 

So what are you sentimental about this week?

Prone to wander...alas, me too! I love that hymn! Your hymnal is lovely and such a sweet sentimental reminder of a loving grandmother and God's unending grace.

From the girl who has a song for everything... no better item for a sentimental attachment!

I have the very same Hymnal sitting on my piano, however not the sentimental value. But a family friend says that it was hers when she was a girl, don't know how I ended up with it.
