Hymn Scripture Challenge with Patter Cross - #3 - My Faith Looks Up to Thee

My Faith Looks Up to Thee is the hymn that Patter has chose for this fortnight. If you pop over to her blog HERE you can read about the writing of this hymn.

On my digital page I have shared the last verse. Maybe the reason this verse stood out to me is because this past weekend was the 1st anniversary of my dear mother's death.
I have shared part of verse 54 in 1 Corinthians 15 on my page and would like to here add the following verse which is a quote from Hosea:

"Where, O death, is your victory?
Where, O death, is your sting?"     1 Corinthians 15:55

Then verse 57:     "But thanks be to God! He gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ"

Oh! what joy and what comfort to know that death does not have any hold over us or any sting to it.
