It could have been my deathbed.

It was the second night after my open-heart double bypass surgery. My lungs were not reinflating properly. I was getting a lot of attention in the ICU.

Before my surgery, my pastor and my family prayed and read Scripture with me. I had the Lord’s Supper. My father had told me, “If you get nervous, just sing through ‘Jesus, Priceless Treasure.’ That’s my favorite hymn.”

But there on what could have been my deathbed, I found out that I did not have the strength or focus to sing through all of “Jesus, Priceless Treasure.” Instead, what went through my mind over and over were short psalm verses set to music.
