Hymn – 007 Israel Israel God Is Calling
This hymn commentary is a help prepared for those who might find it interesting to read an explanation of the text of some of our beloved hymns. The text for this hymn came from lds.org. Specifically, it came from this list of hymns.
How many hymns finally end up in this series will depend on whether this is something you find useful. Please leave a comment below and let me know what you think.
Is this the same Kelly Merrill who appeared on video in small scripture study groups years ago? A few scholars from BYU would read and discuss (and EXPLAIN to us lay people) various passages…the name sounds familiar but I have had two strokes and have cataracts now…I loved those little videos.
The Kelly you refer to must be a distant relative. I have made relatively few public appearances in videos. I can only hope he taught good doctrine. 🙂
