Sally, that is truly beautiful! We really aren't worthy, are we? But, He cared enough to say YES when His Father asked Him to come to die for us! I fail Him every day, yet He said YES for me? God's Mercy is !!
Blessings to you and to your firend Beatrice! Vicki

Smile - no matter what happens - just because God is our Strength and He Loves us just the way we are! "What? Know you not that your body is the temple of the Holy Ghost, which is in you, which you have of God, and you are NOT your own?" 1 Corinthians 6:19
This particular song is very touching and I can hear Bea singing it right now. I Am Not Worthy
I am not worthy the least of His favor,But Jesus left Heaven for me;-- The Word became flesh and He died as my Saviour, Forsaken on dark Calvary.--
I am not worthy the least of His favor, But "in the Beloved" I stand;-- Now I'm an heir with my wonderful Saviour,And all things are mine at His hand.--
I am not worthy the least of His favor, But He is preparing a place---- Where I shall dwell with my glorified Saviour, Forever to look on His face.--
Chorus: Iam not worthy! This dull tongue repeats it; Iam not worthy!This heart gladly beats it. Jesus left Heaven to die in my place-- What mercy,What love and what grace!
This has to be one of my favorites by Bea,written in 1949. Someone said how can it be read,that we are not worthy,but there is another song I have seen with the same title. God moved her hand to write this song and I praise Him for it. It humbles me to think of our dear Lord at dark Calvary and when I came to the chorus,it gave me the chills. Thank you Bea,I love you dearly,Sally
