By Request, ‘Precious Memories’

Requested by SlimJim (thanks, Jimmy): Precious Memories, by Alan Jackson. This song really speaks to me. Oh, to be at Grandpa’s house for Christmas once again!

We wait for the Lord to restore all things.

‘I Love to Tell the Story’

No hymn requests have come in this morning, so I’ll go with an old Sunday school favorite–I Love to Tell the Story, sung by Alan Jackson. Is that a tear in his eye… or is it in mine?

By Request, ‘How Great Thou Art’

Requested by Phoebe, How Great Thou Art, performed by Alan Jackson.

This brings back memories! My mother used to sing this hymn as she did housework. So did my grandma. How I miss them…

By Request, ‘In the Garden’

Phoebe asked for this hymn, and that’s one of the jobs we do, so here it is–In the Garden, sung by Alan Jackson: with lyrics, too.

Consider this a sanity break. So much evil, so much madness out there…

By Request, ‘How Great Thou Art’

Requested by “Thewhiterabbit,” How Great Thou Art–and I chose this rendition by Alan Jackson. My granda and my mother both used to sing this as they did their housework. How we long for the presence of the Lord, sometimes!

‘I Love to Tell the Story’

An old Sunday school favorite, I Love to Tell the Story, sung by Alan Jackson–and is that a tear in his eye? I think it is.

Bonus Carol: ‘Silent Night’

Hey! Let’s do Christmas for all we’re worth! Sing it, shout it, proclaim it: Christ the Savior is born, He whose right it is to rule, He’ll break the heathen with a rod of iron–and we are saved!

Come on, more carols–the villains hate to hear it. Demons flee from His face. God sets ’em up and sets ’em down. And we are saved!

So here’s another Christmas carol–Silent Night, sung by Alan Jackson.

By Request, ‘Away in a Manger’

Here it is, the first entry in our Christmas Carol Contest! Requested by Erlene, Away in a Manger. This rendition is sung by Alan Jackson.

What a flood of sweet memories this hymn invokes! Some of the very earliest memories I have, in fact.

If we ever needed Christmas, we need it now, in 2020.

‘Love Lifted Me’

Your Favorite Hymns continues with Love Lifted Me, sung by Alan Jackson; and we’ve just about gotten through another load of hymn requests, so it’s time to fill the cart again. If you’ve got a favorite hymn or two, or even half a dozen of them, that you’d like to share with other readers, just let us know.

‘Are You Washed in the Blood?’

The lady said “Sing louder!”, so that’s exactly what we’re gonna do. Requested by Phoebe: Are You Washed in the Blood?, with an audience that’s up for it.

Well, we’d better be up for it: this is one of those times that try men’s souls.
