So no cookie for me, 'cause I can't figure out which hymn. When I read it though, all I can hear running around in my head is "God of Wonders". Giggle. But that's not a hymn,really. Anyway, I love the way that you write the Veroshi Hymns. They're so sweet and you do so well. Brava! Heidi Hecht
replies: "Thanks much, Mandy! I guess I'll give you cookies anyway, because you maintained your dignity and refrained from the legendary First Comments Dance!"

Hmmm...as I read this a tune came to my head, but I can't remember the name of the hymn. And since I can't sing the tune to you...I lose.
Anyway, I really like this. I don't know what else to say. I just like it. Lots and lots! Heidi Hecht
replies: "I hate it when you get a song in your head but can't think of the name of it! Cheers and be sure to let me know when it hits you!"

No cookies for me either, but it's still a good set of verses. Heidi Hecht

the style is kind of hymy as in days of old
what you based it on ,
theres one that begins
lord of all .... , lord of all ...
and ends sort of
your strength in our hearts lord at the break of the day
~ the metre doesn’t fit your poem throughout though
just some of it .. ah well
grebsa is in your other poems too .. sounds at first like a goddess name
i like veroshi , its a lovely word
no need to explain
i’ll read your stories when my attention span is up a bit
thanks for your message in my guestpage a while ago
i have some poems up now
replies: "Yeah I think I know that one. It’s a favorite around Easter. I was thinking more in terms of "Spirit of Gentless" though. If you know that one. I forget the words but the chorus goes something like, "Spirit, Spirit of Gentleness, Blow through the Wilderness, duh duh duh duh" (I forget the words around the "duh duh duh duh" part.)"

This is a very lovely hymn, perhaps someday when I can actually concentrate I’ll try to sing it, and before you know it people all around the world will be singing this hymn ^_^ Heidi Hecht
replies: "Thanks! I just hope I got the rythm right. I based it on that "Spirit of Gentleness" hymn."

Hard to concentrate on the rhythm with Rosanne Cash singing in my ear! Had to pause her for a minute, but still didn’t get it. I must be rusty on the old hymns. My church goes more for the "newer" choruses and songs. But the words are lovely, Heidi. Well done!
*sigh* No cookie for me... Ah well... they’d just go straight to my hips anyway. *sigh* Heidi Hecht
replies: "Yeah...I had the same problem when I was writing it. Had to turn my radio off because of it. Hmm...It seems I did base this one on a tough hymn to guess."
