By Request, ‘Turn Your Eyes Upon Jesus’

Requested by Erlene–and I can’t think of a better time to post this–Turn Your Eyes Upon Jesus (and may He please turn His upon us! We need you, Lord).

Sung by Alan Jackson… I like the way he does it.

By Request, ‘In the Garden’

Oops! What with all the hurly-burly here today, I almost let this hymn request slip past. Glad I remembered it.

Requested by Phoebe, In the Garden. I selected this rendition by Alan Jackson–nice and mellow, isn’t it?

‘Amazing Grace’

I felt called to hear this hymn, this morning: Amazing Grace, sung by Alan Jackson. It made me cry a little, but that’s okay. The Lord understands. Yes, He knows.

By Request, ‘How Great Thou Art’

Requested by Erlene, and sung by Alan Jackson: How Great Thou Art.

I love this hymn! My mother and my aunts used to sing it as they went about their housework. How it brings them back to me! And so many dear and precious times.

Every good thing we have ever known comes to us from God.

‘Sweet Hour of Prayer’

No hymn requests this morning. No refrigerator, either. I think the best I can do is just post whatever hymn I think of first: and that would be this one, Sweet Hour of Prayer, sung by Alan Jackson.

‘How Great Thou Art’

Well, here’s another day, let’s pray it goes well…

How Great Thou Art–my grandma, my mother, and my aunts used to sing this, usually as they went about their housework. Here we have it from Alan Jackson. Sweet memories…

‘Sweet Hour of Prayer’

My aunts used to sing this as they went about their housework, and it was the first hymn that came to my mind today, so here it is: Sweet Hour of Prayer, sung by Alan Jackson.

By Request, ‘He Lives’

We have a hymn request from Thewhiterabbit: He Lives, sung by Alan Jackson. I’m thinking we must have sung this hymn in Sunday school–but I’m already running so late this morning, I don’t have time to think about it.

‘The Old Rugged Cross’

When Our Lord Jesus Christ was nailed to the cross, and died, and thrust into a tomb, Satan must have thought, “I’ve thrown everything I have at Them… and I have won!”

But we now know that the cross and the tomb were not the end of it. They were only the beginning.

Hymn: The Old Rugged Cross, sung by Alan Jackson.

Two Hymns for the Price of One

“Make a joyful noise unto the Lord,” Psalm 100 tells us–so let’s do that. Alan Jackson has two hymns for us here–Are You Washed in the Blood? and I’ll Fly Away, the one flowing into the other.
