Hymn, ‘All Hail the Power of Jesus’ Name’

Let every kindred, every tribe, on this terrestrial ball

to Him all majesty ascribe, and crown Him Lord of all…

Here is a melody for this hymn completely different from the melody I grew up with: nevertheless, a soul-reviving rendition by the Duke University Chapel choir.

Personally, I don’t often seek the Son of Man in grand circumstances: but we must never forget that He is King of Kings and Lord of Lords, and worthy of pomp and grandeur beyond our power to conceive. He is, after all, the King of Glory.

  1. Beautiful! Thank you, Lee. Sure hope your day is a bit less stressful today.

    Here are two requests for the hymn list: ‘Surely the Presence of the Lord Is in This Place’ and ‘Holy Ground’

    1. Just came back from the nursing home (Aunt Joan is no better, no worse), and I have to squeeze in a bike ride before it starts to rain. And also a blog post.

      Of course I will post your hymns, Linda–it’s always my pleasure.

  2. Thank you, Lee. Glad to hear your aunt’s condition is at least status quo. I know it’s a difficult thing, but Our God is watching and He knows what His Plan is. We can only follow Him and pray we do it right. Enjoy your bike ride. As for me, this rain (actually, the barometric pressure change) always brings me a horrific migraine – so that will be my day . . . maybe several, as is sometimes the case.

  3. Linda, I’m sorry to hear about your migraines. They are horrible. I saw my late mother in law suffrering from them, and I have had about three in my life. Thank you for your song suggestions, too; both are special favorites of mine.
    Lee, best day possible for you, with prayer.

    1. Thank you for your compassion, Erlene. Unfortunately, I get the whole spectrum of symptoms: aura, nausea, light and noise sensitivity, pounding headache, all of which sometimes last for days. The soothing hymns of praise to Our Lord also soothe the soul and help one deal with migraines and all sorts of other things we deal with in this life. Our reward awaits with Him.

    2. I’ve just learned that my sister has had migraines throughout her adult life. Last year they were giving her double vision–not much fun on a New Jersey highway.

      I pray that yours will be taken away from you, Linda.

    3. Thank you, Lee. That truly would be a blessing. (for your sister, too). I’ve had them since I was 5 years old. In fact, I remember my first one – I was watching a baseball game on tv with my grampa and all of a sudden couldn’t see the picture (it was all snowy looking). Unfortunately, I wasn’t diagnosed until I was in my late 20s because in our house, my father said ‘little kids don’t get headaches’, so I didn’t really know what to do with them. I’ve had that experience while driving – not fun!
