I don’t know about you, but I need a hymn this morning. I think I may have posted this one some months ago, but it’s the one I want just now: I Sing the Mighty Power of God, with words by the old master, Isaac Watts, published in 1715.
Please feel free to request hymns to be posted on this blog. Lately everybody’s stopped doing that. I don’t know why. This fallen world hasn’t picked itself up and straightened itself out in the meantime.
Let me hear from you!

I don’t know many hymns…just the most popular few, since I didn’t grow up with them. I know a lot of contemporary Christian music, but not sure those are the requests you want.
It depends on the song. Some of those would not be out of place in a hymnal. So go ahead–ask away.
Ok, how about this one? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=y_VR-zwp2KA&list=RDy_VR-zwp2KA#t=0
The Great I Am by Phillips, Craig and Dean
Okay! I’ll post it tomorrow, it’ll give me a hymn to start the day.
As I see it, it doesn’t have to be in the hymnal to be a hymn. It’s a joyful noise unto the Lord–and thanks for bringing it to my attention.
See? I’m not such a narrow-minded guy.
I agree, and I know you’re not narrow-minded 🙂 For some people “new” Christian music is a touchy subject, and I want to be respectful of your blog audience.
How about a rousing “I will enter His gates with Thanksgiving in my heart…I will enter His gates with praise” It’s really more of a campground chorus. Another is “This is the day that the Lord hath made”. As for a hymn, how about “there is power in the blood”.
I’ll look for them on youtube, and if they’re there, I’ll post them. Thanks for the suggestions.
