Cover of All I Have Needed


I have been thinking of this song all morning. This strong hymn with comforting lyrics is an all-time favorite with many. Our church body is praying for a woman named Sally who has Altzheimer's and wandered from a campground in the mountains. We hope for her safety and return to her family. She has been missing for 7 days now.

I wondered if you had a memorable traditional song that is one of your favorite's in addition to Amazing Grace? Perhaps it is, What a Friend We Have In Jesus.
