But every time I hear (and watch!) Sandi Patty sing this song, it absolutely gives me chills. In 1983 (I know, some of you were in elementary or middle school or - gasp! - just being born!!) I had just graduated from college, and a wonderful, revolutionary new invention called a VCR had just come out. Sandi Patti, as she was known in those days due to a typo on her first album that "stuck", put out a video and I used to watch this song over and over trying to learn the sign language, which adds so much expression and meaning to this incredible song.
Here is a version of Sandi singing it a few years ago. For those of you who are not familiar with gospel music hisotry, the woman with the gigantinormous earrings who they keep showing is Dottie Rambo; she wrote the song and is now beholding Him, face to face in all of His glory!
There are more songs waiting to bless you over at Amy's blog! Better yet, why don't you join in the fun and worship and share one of your favorites as well?
