‘All Hail the Power of Jesus’ Name’

Such a beautiful summer day as we’re having here today always makes me think of this hymn, All Hail the Power of Jesus’ Name, as it was sung by our counselors at Y Camp–outdoor service on a hilltop, with the woods and fields of northern New Jersey spread out in all directions: gorgeous!

Here, indoors, at First-Plymouth Church in Lincoln, Nebraska, we have the same hymn sung by choir and congregation with organ and trumpets to back it up.

    This is a great song, and one we sing at our church. Encouraging, uplifting and good to sing.

    As I was about to request a hymn – ‘It Is Well With My Soul’ – this short history came up. I’ve heard it before, but for those who haven’t, it’s well worth the 10 minutes and I’m sure I will bless you:

    And, Lee, I would like to add this hymn to your request list.

    Today at church we had to sing along to a small piano because our 95 year old organ that has never been rebuilt needs maintenance. It sure made a difference in the singing (people will sing out more to the organ which fills every inch of the sanctuary) but all hailing the power of Jesus’ Name was not diminished.
