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.

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!
