By Request, ‘Pass Me Not, O Gentle Savior’

No, I’m not missing from action today. But one of my hours sure is! Could we please not bother with Daylight Savings Time anymore?

But onto something more edifying–this gospel song, for instance: Pass Me Not, O Gentle Savior, with echoes of Psalm 73.

Again I invite all of you to join in–request a hymn, and I’ll post it here. Don’t be shy. This is an evil age in a fallen world, and we need to sing louder. God will hear us.

  1. Thank you, Lee. The prayer in the hearts of all of His children.

    This time change craziness doesn’t seem to have much purpose other than to keep us confused.

    Here’s another request: ‘Shout To The Lord’ by Michael W. Smith. This is one everyone could sing – louder!

  2. A beautiful choral arrangement of a lovely gospel song. Fanny Crosby sure knew how to put “heart” into her music.

    There’s a line in the 4th stanza of this hymn that speaks of Christ as “More than life to me.” It’s a convicting thought, raising the question: Is He, really? Fanny must have thought more about that herself. Seven years later (in 1875) she wrote the beautiful testimony song, “Saviour, More Than Life to Me.”

    God bless. Thanks for the musical treat. Robert

    1. Thank you for that link to Fanny Crosby. It’s amazing–they don’t know exactly how many hymns she composed: the best estimate is between 8,500 and 9,000. That long list includes many old favorites–indeed, too many to mention here.

      Fanny Crosby was blind–but oh, the wonderful things she saw! And let us see them, too.
