Today's Miracle Monday is an experience that the late Sister Marie McGuire had on May 9-10, 1991, almost exactly 28 years ago.
One morning, after awakening, some words came to me, and immediately following a melody came to me. I wrote the words down at once, and I then reached for the Saints Hymnal, searching and trying to connect the tune and words to any of the hymns in the hymnal. The closest I came was No. 146, where the poet penned, “And the toils of the road will seem nothing, when I get to the end of the way.”
I then called a sister to tell her what had just happened. I read the words I received and hummed the tune to her, and she reminded me that it was the same tune as “Turn Your Eyes Upon Jesus.” I then read the words of this hymn, and they were not the same as what was given to me.
