A Book Meme!

Thanks to Singing Owl, I'm finally going to play the book meme! It goes like this:

Pick up the nearest book of 123 pages or more. (No cheating!)

It's the venerable 1932 Methodist Hymnal, which (incidentally) was much-loved and in use when I was born.

Find Page 123.

Find the first 5 sentences.

Post the next 3 sentences.

Go ye forth with joy to meet Him! And, my soul, be swift to bring
All thy sweetest and thy dearest For the triumph of our King!

This was from hymn #123, "There's a Light upon the Mountains," text by Henry Burton, 1840-1939. Tune:, MT HOLYOKE, by Maurice L. Wosterholm, b. 1887.

Tag 5 people.

So many people have already been tagged! So at this point, I'm reading back to Jan. 1 in prospective tagees' blogs. If you haven't blogged this meme since then, I'm considering you fair game!

Thanks! I'm laughing, though, because the closest book at hand will make for a very silly meme....

I have a book at home...I'll do it when I get a chance this weekend...very busy. Sounds lame, I know. But, dinner tonight with colleagues, dinner last night with Jesus Creed people, tomorrow a funeral service, Sunday services in the new parish...and still finishing the final touches on house rehab...writing two papers this weekend...
Meme tomorrow...promise. You don't want my stuff from work (it's something like this: With this equation, the fitted curve can be reproduced on other graphs; methematical calulations can be performed; and/or specific observations....)!

No rush, no pressure, no need to even do this silly little thing...unless you WANT to. And trust me...if I could make it work with a hymnal, I'm sure it would work with almost any other kind of book, too. I'd love to see the silly-book meme, Zorra, but don't let me twist your arm.

OK! I warned you!
