Words Written by: Arthur A. Luther

Arthur A. Luther was a pastor and a musician. I was not able to find much about the author of this hymn. But I did find a piece that was sent to a pastor in California by the author's daughter. This piece was written by Arthur A. Luther himself. It is wonderful. I cannot, of course, copy here it to my blog because of copyright reasons so I ask that you click this link to read it. I think you will enjoy it. And be sure to scroll to the bottom. There you can hear Arthur Luther sing and play this hymn. So, let's start off by reading this hymn:
Anyway, I dug into a lot of study, and this hymn has truly blessed me as my daughter was facing oral surgery on Friday. She came to me in tears Tuesday night saying that she felt she was going to die during the surgery and that she wanted her life to be more than that. Then Wednesday morning, God gave me this hymn—not only for me but for her (and for you)! Do you feel helpless at times? Do you feel that even your friends let you down? Are you facing something that scares you? Well, God is on your side. He will never fail! He cares. His love is immeasurable.
Ephesians 3:17b-19 "And I pray that you, being rooted and established in love, may have power, together with all the Lord’s holy people, to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ, and to know this love that surpasses knowledge—that you may be filled to the measure of all the fullness of God."
