‘Immortal, Invisible, God Only Wise’

No hymn requests this morning, have to go grocery-shopping in the morning, Robbie to the vet’s this afternoon…

So I picked out this one for you: Immortal, Invisible, God Only Wise, sung by the Smucker Family. Background sets by God the Father, work of his hands.

‘Amazing Grace’

I felt called to hear this hymn, this morning: Amazing Grace, sung by Alan Jackson. It made me cry a little, but that’s okay. The Lord understands. Yes, He knows.

By Request, ‘Praise to the Lord, the Almighty’

This is another one of my Sunday school favorites: Praise to the Lord, the Almighty, requested by Elder Mike, sung by the Altar of Praise Men’s Chorale.

We’re open for hymn requests all day; if there’s a hymn you’d like to share, don’t be shy.

‘Beneath the Cross of Jesus’

No hymn requests today, so I had to try to think of one–but as soon as I got into YouTube, I found this. Performed by our friends and colleagues, Joshua and Jeremy: Beneath the Cross of Jesus.

‘To God Be the Glory’

I don’t have a hymn request this morning, so I’m on my own, take the first hymn that pops into my head–To God Be the Glory, video provided by the Northern Baptist Assn. I don’t know who’s singing… but the landscape is beautiful.

By Request, ‘Bind Us Together, Lord’

“Someone”–Wordpress is at it again–requested this worship song, Bind Us Together, Lord. This is the first time I’ve heard it. It was published in 1974.

The hymn shop’s open all day, folks–don’t be bashful about requesting a hymn. You know we need them.

By Request, ‘I See a Crimson Stream of Blood’

Well, we have another hymn request, and I’m already noozed out… so we’ll have the hymn instead.

Requested by Elder Mike, written by Bishop G.T. Haywood: I See a Crimson Stream of Blood, sung by the Randell Family. Tracking down this one wasn’t easy, but here it is.

By Request: ‘Holy, Holy, Holy’

We have a hymn request by Thewhiterabbit–Holy, Holy, Holy, Lord God Almighty, sung by the Altar of Praise Men’s Chorale. I couldn’t resist the visuals of this video: background sets by God the Father, Maker of Heaven and Earth.

By Request, ‘In the Sweet By and By’

That last “education” nooze I posted… well, it disgusted me. Let’s have a hymn instead.

Erlene requested this one, In the Sweet By and By, and I chose this rather nice rendition by Johnny Cash.

Now I think I can work on my book.

(Rain, rain, rain… I could go back to bed…)

Elder Mike was wondering about hymns by Fanny Crosby that I’ve never posted. You know, she wrote eight or nine thousand of them. East to miss a few thousand of them. Some are still very popular today; some are forgotten.

I went into the archives and found that 20 Fanny Crosby hymns have been posted here; and I’m afraid a few of them have been posted very often (He Hideth My Soul, Draw Me Nearer, To God Be the Glory, and a few others).

Yes, I do repeat myself. I post my favorite hymns a lot.

But I want to post your favorites, too; I’ve always got my eye out for a hymn request. I wish all my readers would make one now and then. Maybe I’ve let myself in for a “Be careful what you wish for” moment–but really, I don’t see how we can have too many hymns.

Any Isaac Watts or Charles Wesley hymns out there that I haven’t posted yet?
