Looking for some encouragement today? Listen to the inspiring Joni Eareckson Tada sing the calming song, Alone Yet Not Alone. I can’t speak for the movie the song appears in but the book sounds amazing and is on my to-read list. The German girls the true story is based on sang a hymn while in the midst of trials. The English translation of the German hymn by Benjamin Schmolck:
I am alone, yet not alone,
For Thou art near:
I cannot see Thy loving face,
But I can hear
The cheering promise of Thy grace.
Thou wilt not leave me in the dark
When falls the night;
For round my path and in my soul
Thou art the Light
To guide me with Thy sweet control.
No want can steal my rich supplies
Of love and peace;
For though I lack what others hold,
My stores increase
With heavenly gifts more rare than gold.
And Thou wilt bear me all life through,
And in the end
Wilt still abide what Thou hast been,
My constant Friend,
And take me where Thy face is seen.
