‘Come, Thou Long Expected Jesus’

I don’t know how many different sets of lyrics there are for “Hyfrydol.” It seems each denomination has its own. Here we have it as Come, Thou Long Expected Jesus, by Charles Wesley: sung by Fernando Ortega.


Are Cats Part-Octopus?

The octopus is well known for its ability to slip into or out of tight places. It’s not so hard to do, when you don’t have a skeleton.

Cats do have skeletons, or so I’ve heard. Otherwise they’d wind up folded in your wallet or seeping outside under the closed door. Watch the one cat in this video practically pour himself into a glass jar that you’re sure is just too small to hold him.

Why do they do it? Free tin-foil hat to whoever knows.


By Request, ‘Rock of Ages’

Rock of Ages, by Rev. A.M. Toplady, was first published in 1775 and has remained popular ever since–but you’ve never heard it sung like this before. Requested by Joshua: Rock of Ages, sung a capella by GLAD.


‘This Is My Father’s World’

This was a Sunday school favorite of mine, and still is–This Is My Father’s World. It carries an important message: “This is my Father’s world, and let me ne’er forget that though the wrong seems oft so strong, God is the ruler yet.”

Performed by Central Study Hour Worship.


Cats & Puppies (without Adam Schiff)

My cat Buster would have loved to have a puppy to romp with. He never had much time for the serious side of life–if he even knew that such a thing existed. So, yeah, a playful puppy would have suited him down to the ground.


By Request, ‘Blessed Are Those Who’ve Never Seen’

Thomas believed in Jesus because he saw the wounds in His hands and feet and side; but Jesus said, as the hymn tells us, “Blessed are those who have not seen, and believe.”

Requested by Erlene, Blessed Are Those Who’ve Never Seen, by Carroll Roberson.


Some Naughty Cats

When you sternly rebuke your dog, he hangs his head, cringes, and does that weird little frantic tail-wagging.

When you sternly rebuke your cat, he looks at you like you don’t have the foggiest idea what you’re talking about. Of course he shredded the paper towels! You got a problem with that?

Disclaimer: My cats simply don’t do things like that. They just get yelled at for fighting.


‘He Who Would Valiant Be’

I have no idea whether the hymn I selected will appear here. Everything on this computer is chaos today.

What I wanted–and I don’t know if that’s what you’re seeing–was He Who Would Valiant Be, accompanied by video of a scenic, soothing little ride on the North Yorkshire Moors Railway.

Pray for my head not to explode today.


More Unusual Pets

I don’t know–maybe for some of you, having a couple of bears for pets might not be unusual. Ditto the skateboarding dog. And that little striped thing, I think, is a baby peccary. I have heard that these close relatives of the pig generally grow up to be fierce and unpredictable. I think you’re better off with giant millipedes.


Sanity Break, ‘The Love of God’

Enough already with the politics! Happily, a hymn request popped up. Let’s go there instead.

Requested by Erlene, The Love of God, by the Gaither Vocal Band. Wow! Can these guys sing, or what? Make a joyful noise unto the Lord!
