‘Oh, Sinner Man’

Take a Caribbean spiritual and move it to the Irish Sea, complete with seals and grey waters, grey skies–I don’t know why it works, but it does. Oh, Sinner Man! Where You Gonna Run To? Complete with cold water and hot mandolin.

‘Ubi Caritas’

We have to thank Lisa for sending us this beautiful hymn by Audrey Assad, Ubi Caritas–“Where Charity Is,” in Latin.

If you’re new to this blog, we like to start the day with a hymn and we take reader requests. So if you have a favorite hymn you’d like to share, just leave a comment anywhere on the site and we’ll do the rest.

Oh, Boy! Bogus Phony ‘History’

Not exactly a “church,” is it?

Liberals love Islam. Probably because it isn’t Christianity. But this is ridiculous.

So some guy writes an article for a site called Aeon, “Muslims of early America,” which declares that “Muslims came to America more than a century before Protestants, and in great numbers…” ( Oh, please.

You know this writer is a hoser right off the bat, when he discusses Hernando Cortez’ conquest of Mexico in the early 1500s. He resorts to Bernal Diaz del Castillo’s eyewitness account of that enterprise, in which Bernal uses the Spanish word for “mosques” to denote the Aztecs’ heathen temples. The writer expects us to take that literally. Sheesh. What was Bernal supposed to call them? Churches? Cathedrals? The first time Cortez and his men entered the Aztec capital of Tenochtitlan (now Mexico City), Bernal said he and lot of his comrades thought they had literally blundered into Hell itself. An Aztec religious festival was in progress, featuring thousands of human sacrifices–a gory spectacle indeed. No, he was not going to call those temples churches. “Mosques” was the best he could do. Having just finished a centuries-long war with Islam for the possession of Spain, Spaniards like Castillo had a lot of ill feeling toward Islam.

As for scads of Muslims “coming” to America–well, they jolly well didn’t come here on purpose! They were African slaves brought here against their will, some of them with Arabic names. To my mind that does not add up to Islamic colonization of America.

This is all academic bunk. America does not have any “Muslim heritage.” Libs wish it were otherwise, but wishing cannot make it so. Unless you’re writing pseudo-history.

History is the collective memory of the human race, and to taint it and corrupt it on purpose is a kind of crime against the human mind. But it’s only to be expected from academic patzers who prattle on about “your truth and my truth,” etc.

It’s something that our schools and colleges do rather well.

My Newswithviews Column, May 23 (‘It’s War, All Right’)

‘No hay pan’ is “We have no bread” in Spanish: Venezuelan slang for ‘Ain’t socialism wonderful?’

Remember what Sun Tzu said, in The Art of War: “On death ground, fight.”

It’s War, All Right

Far Left Crazy means to wipe out Christian America, and won’t let up until it does. The culture war is still on, it’s deadly serious, and Christian America has to win or Christian America dies. It’s that simply.

And never mind being “winsome”!

The time for that is after we’ve won a total victory and the Democrat Party has been forever consigned to the landfill of history.

‘Christ Shall Have Dominion’

Anti-Christian fanatics will hate this hymn, so play it proud and play it loud–Christ Shall Have Dominion, sung by the congregation at Grace Community Church in San Antonio, Texas. And you already know the melody, so here are the lyrics, too.

‘For the Beauty of the Earth’

This hymn came back to me yesterday evening, as I looked at green leaves waving against a sapphire sky: For the Beauty of the Earth, sung by Michelle Swift.

And God saw everything that He had made, and, behold, it was very good. (Genesis 1:31)

By Request, ‘When He Was on the Cross’

Requested by Erlene: When He Was on the Cross, by John Starnes.

People in the First Century were used to seeing horrific punishments, like crucifixion, carried out in public. We are not–and God be thanked for that. Speaking for myself, the cross is not an easy thing to think about. Nor should it be. O Lord our God, draw us to Jesus. Amen.

‘Morning Has Broken’

I never knew, until recently, that Morning Has Broken is a hymn–and quite a lovely hymn, at that. Here it’s sung by Orla Fallon. Don’t be surprised if it sticks with you all day.

‘I Need Thee Every Hour’ (in Welsh)

In Welsh it’s “Mae d’eisiau di bob awr,” and we know it as I Need Thee Every Hour. Don’t you find that if you know the melody, the hymn will speak to you no matter what language it’s sung in?

King Arthur and St. David would have understood these lyrics.
