Encore, ‘O Worship the King’

I love this hymn, the first hymn I ever learned to play on my harmonica. It can be traced back to the 1500’s, and the melody as we know it first appeared in 1708. This rendition, in 18th-century style, is by Maddy Prior and the Carnival Band: O Worship the King.

I know I tend to repeat myself in my selection of hymns; so if there’s a hymn you’d like to see posted here, just let us know.
