By Request, ‘On Jordan’s Bank’

I have just enough time, before I dash out for Christmas-shopping, to post this Advent hymn requested by Phoebe: On Jordan’s Bank. And if I don’t hurry, I won’t be able to find a parking space. Thank you, Phoebe.

By Request, ‘Come, Thou Long-Expected Jesus’

And we have an Advent hymn request from Laura: Come, Thou Long-Expected Jesus, written by Charles Wesley, published in 1745, and here performed by the St. John’s College Choir, Cambridge.

It can also be sung to the Welsh melody, “Hyfrydol,” one of my favorites–but this is quite nice, wouldn’t you say?
