Love Him in the Morning: Reflections on God's Faithfulness

by John Fischer

Review  |   Author Bio  |  Read an Excerpt

Review:

In Love Him in the Morning, by John Fischer, what appears to be little more than the simple retelling of how “The All Day Song” came about, is in fact a poignant and refreshing tale of the Christian journey. From the meaning of faith, to the unanswerable questions of life, John Fischer shares his poetic view through elegant prose.

Even for those unacquainted with “The All Day Song,” Love Him in the Morning holds gems of wisdom. The author takes the song, line by line, via vignettes and poetry, and describes the meaning of the lyrics. A songwriter since the early ‘70s, Fischer’s refined use of imagery is captivating.

The author describes the origin of the accompanying hand movements, and how he teaches them to recovering alcoholics and youth groups alike. Through them, participants experience childlikeness.

You’ll want to read just one more page of this endearing book. A must-read for anyone who fondly remembers the Jesus movement or has ever been to church camp. With poetic passages rich with symbolism, you will want to buy this easy-to-read yet meaningful book for a friend or struggling soul. Eloquently written, infused with hope and grace, this is a literary hug. -- Suzanne Rae Deshchidn, Christian Book Previews.com

Book Jacket:

Love Him in the morning when you see the sun arising.

Love Him in the evening 'cause He took you through the day.

And in the in-between time when you feel the pressure coming,

Remember that He loves you and He promises to stay.

When a twenty-something John Fischer penned "All Day Song" he reached a new generation searching for inner solutions to world problems. Little did he know that song would become a favorite at church camps, in youth groups, and in church hymnals today.

This book, a lifetime in the making, reflects on his famous lyrics. Fischer shows how simple relationship with God can be: Love and be loved. With intimate, conversational, and provocative narrative readers experience:

  • the wonder of God in the morning when all is fresh and new
  • the yearning for God at night when we need his grace and forgiveness
  • the presence of God in the in-between time where most of us live every day.

As he did thirty years ago, John Fischer has crafted a powerful and profound message that will motivate ever-new generations to seek God.
