‘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.

‘How Great Thou Art’

I grew up with this hymn. My mother and my aunts used to sing it as they did their housework. I like this rendition by Alan Jackson: How Great Thou Art. And remember, we’re always looking to add to the list of Your Favorite Hymns. If you’ve got a hymn or two, or half a dozen of them that you’d like to share, just let us know.

‘How Great Thou Art’

I grew up with this hymn. My mother used to sing it as she did her housework. It brings back fond memories.

From the list of Your Favorite Hymns, compiled by the readers: How Great Thou Art, sung by Alan Jackson.

‘There is Power in the Blood’

I love what one of the YouTube commenters said about this hymn: “I want to be so full of Jesus, that when a mosquito bites me, he flies away humming ‘There Is a Power in the Blood’.”

This rendition by Alan Jackson is a bit more lively than some others. I hope you like it.

‘Precious Memories’

Your Favorite Hymns continues with Precious Memories, sung by Alan Jackson. God created the family, and this hymn celebrates that. The time to appreciate it is while most of your family’s still here.

‘Blessed Assurance’


Fanny Crosby wrote somewhere between 8,000 and 9,000 hymns in her career. Blessed Assurance is one of them. I hope you like the way Alan Jackson sings it.

Please feel free to add to the list of Your Favorite Hymns. There’s no danger we’ll run out of them!

By Request, ‘The Old Rugged Cross’

By Request, ‘The Old Rugged Cross’

Phoebe requested this one–The Old Rugged Cross, sung by Alan Jackson. You really shouldn’t be able to listen to this hymn without your eyes filling up. But that’s okay–your tears are a tribute to Jesus Christ Our Lord, who loves us.
