‘All Hail the Power of Jesus’ Name’

This is the hymn I had in me this morning: All Hail the Power of Jesus’ Name, by Edward Perronet in 1780. This hymn was sung, I remember vividly, at our open-air hilltop chapel at Y camp, one Sunday morning; and the counselors’ choir sang it with a will. I will never forget what a beautiful day that was, with fields and woodlands spread out below us in every direction. How wonderful are the works of your hands, O Lord!

    There’s just something about a hymn such as this sung by a powerful choir. Thank you, Lee.

    Amen. We can never praise our great Creator enough. If we praise and worship Him, we give Him a place to dwell with us. Nothing better than that.
