Mr. Philip Bliss was born in Pennsylvania in the year 1838. He is the second most famous Christian song writer in history. He was born to humble Christian parents and was raised on prayer, the Bible, and music. When he was eleven years old, he left home to make a living for himself. (Eleven years old! And here I am having a problem thinking about my 17-year-old living out on his own...) Through a series of tender mercies and guidance from a loving God, Philip eventually became a Christian songwriter. His tragic death came when he was only 38 years old and the world lost one of the greatest hymn composers who ever lived.
I Will Sing of My Redeemer- Fernando Ortega
(**I should note that Philip P. Bliss wrote the lyrics to this song. The music is a Welsh tune composed by Rowland Hugh Prichard when he was 19 years old. It is a tune that you will probably recognize.)
I am loving my second chance at life.
