"I'll Go Where You Want Me To Go"

I believe the song was number 513 in the hymnal.  It was requested by a resident who had difficulty speaking.  The second verse says,
Perhaps today there are loving words,
Which Jesus would have me speak...
My voice shall echo the message sweet,
I'll say what You want me to say.

Ginny, the lady on the right, faithfully lines up musicians to conduct Hymn Sing each Friday at Golden Years Retirement Home.  This was my week to sit on the beautiful needlepoint seat and select, lead and play the hymns that these dear folk have come to love.

Make us worthy, Lord, to serve those throughout the world who live and die in poverty or hunger.
Give them, through our hands, this day their daily bread;
and by our understanding love, give peace and joy.
Mother Teresa of Calcutta


  1. You are so lucky Rebecca to be able to play. I would love to learn to play the piano. I love the hymns. When I am working at church all alone, I sometimes play around on the piano!
    So thoughtful that you volunteer for this! I am sure that you gave some peace and joy to these lovely people. Love Di

  2. I am thankful for your loving, very caring heart.

  3. Thank you for sharing a talent the Lord has blessed you with to bless others.


  4. What a wonderful thing you are doing, using your gift for the joy of others. I think we need more "Rebecca's" in this world, wouldn't that be wonderful.....:-) Hugs

  5. You are a blessing. I would have enjoyed listening to you select, lead and play the hymns. Ever since I walked a few steps with my Dad through old age and loss of dignity, I have even a greater appreciation for those that labor to bring joy and opportunity for worship to those that have so little left in this earthly life. I am well aware that could be the next step for me. I hope there will be someone like you to turn my thoughts towards heaven.

  6. A beautiful post from a lovely lady. Thank you for sharing this. I play at our church...have been playing since I've been a girl...and I'm not a 'girl' anymore...but still enjoy playing and sharing His word through song. Bless you, my friend.

  7. Oh Rebecca, what a wonderful thing you do there. I would love to have that talent...I have visited an old sunday school teacher that I loved as a child in the Alzheimer's facility where she lives. She doesn't even know her own daughters. But when we starting singing hymns, reading the bible, or praying, she just jumps right in like nothing is wrong. It absolutely amazed and humbled me. So don't ever underestimate the good work you are doing and what a blessing you are!
