J&J, ‘I’ll Fly Away’

This is a bonus hymn, an instrumental by our esteemed colleagues, Joshua and Jeremy: I’ll Fly Away. These two guys are very thoroughly loved around here. With young people like these (and others–you know who you are!), you just have to have hope for the future.


‘Faith of Our Fathers’

Your Favorite Hymns continues with Faith of Our Fathers, sung by students from Fountainview Academy on their European tour.

If you’d like to see any of your favorite hymns posted here, just leave a reply anywhere and we’ll add them to the list.


‘O Sacrament Most Holy’

I wish I knew who it was, singing this beautiful hymn, but that information is not given. O Sacrament Most Holy, in sweet harmony…

Your Favorite Hymns continues. Please feel free to add to the list.


‘O God, Our Help in Ages Past’

To continue with your favorite hymns–

Isaac Watts’ hymns from the 18th century are still much loved today. By request: O God, Our Help in Ages Past, sung by the Sharon Mennonite Bible Institute Singers. Background sets by God the Father.


‘In the Garden’ (Your Favorite Hymns)

Tell us your favorite hymns, and we’ll put them on the list and post them.

We continue with In the Garden, sung by Alan Jackson.


‘Holy God, We Praise Thy Name’

They play this hymn on the bells of St. Francis, across the street from me, and finally I know what it’s called–Holy God We Praise Thy Name. I don’t know who the singers are, so I’m not able to give them the credit they deserve.

We try to post your favorite hymns every day. Please feel free to add to the list.


‘There Is a Fountain’

We’re playing your favorite hymns at the start of each day. Today it’s There Is a Fountain, by Selah.

Just tell us your favorite hymns and we’ll add them to the list. You don’t have to name just one!


Bonus Hymn, ‘Our God Is an Awesome God’

I post this as an antidote, an answer, to the pessimism that creeps over our souls from time to time. Let us not forget the God we serve!

If you can, take yourself out of today’s nooze and put yourself into the audience within this video–and then try to tell yourself the bad guys win, no hope, they beat God. Go ahead, try.

Our God Is an Awesome God, by Michael W. Smith: he hardly has to sing it; he’s got a hall full of people to sing it for him.

Feel free to join in!


By Request, ‘I’d Rather Have Jesus’

If you read the preceding post, you know that this hymn wound up getting requested twice: I’d Rather Have Jesus. I chose this treatment by Lindsay, of “Her Heart Sings,” out of many available.

I’ll continue to post Your Favorite Hymns until I come to the end of the list. But there’s no reason why that would ever have to happen, because the list is always open.


‘What a Friend We Have in Jesus’

We continue with Your Favorite Hymns–as we’ll be doing for a while, as it’s become a long listen and you can always add to it.

What a Friend We Have in Jesus, sung by Doc Watson. How many times, I wonder, has he sung this hymn in public: and yet you can see how it moves him.

As it should move us.
