When I hear On A Hymnsong Of Philip Bliss I am whisked away by the enchanting melody. I see a soldier coming home and the joy and love that follows. I see someone moving on and seeing where they fit and feeling like I fit listening to a song I grew up around, a happy family in a church. I feel at home like I’m safe in the song and that no harm will come. I see immense joy and love protruding from this song like a community in harmony, I just see the greatness it entails. With this song I feel like I finally fit somewhere and I just see a vision in my head of my favorite kind of day, a spring day under a tree finally coming out on the other end.
