Blynn Lehman is an adventurous boy determined to help his family face the financial struggles brought about by WWI. Since his father has already begun writing a song about the love of God, Blynn and his siblings try to help him finish it. Their comical failed attempts to write a verse for the song cause Blynn to realize he doesn't really understand what it means to love God. After Blynn stumbles across the perfect verse to finish the song, the hunt for the author begins, leading them from an old asylum to a scholarly Rabbi, where they learn that an ancient Jewish Rabbi living in Germany during the time of the First Crusade originally composed the poem they are considering. When the family receives tragic news, Blynn's struggle to understand God's love comes to a climax. Ultimately he learns what it means to love God with all your heart and soul and mind and strength.
This is a movie that will inspire you! For everyone who has ever experienced pain and questions about life, this film delivers the ultimate message: God loves us during our pain and His love is inexhaustible as well as...indescribable.
