By Request, ‘There Is Power in the Blood’

Requested by Jeremy (Joshua’s brother)–There Is Power in the Blood, performed by Alan Jackson, written in 1899 by Lewis E. Jones. I’d never heard it before Joshua requested it.

Hello! If you’re new here, I want you to know that anyone can request a hymn, anytime, the hymn shop’s always open. If there’s a hymn you’d like to share, just let us know by leaving a comment anywhere on the blog. We’ll do the rest.


‘Blessed Assurance’

This is one of the 8,000 hymns that Fanny Crosby wrote–Blessed Assurance, sung here by Alan Jackson. This stirs my soul; I hope it does the same for you.


‘What a Friend We Have in Jesus’

My wife’s medicine that started out so well has produced difficulties, so off we go to the doctor. Maybe he can prescribe something else. Please pray for us.

Meanwhile, the friendship of Our Lord Jesus Christ is something we all need. What a Friend We Have in Jesus, this rendition by Alan Jackson–and now I have to go…


‘In the Garden’

It’s been so long since I’ve heard this hymn, it was like hearing it for the first time–In the Garden, sung here by Alan Jackson.

Some of you are here almost every day, and never request a hymn. Well, the hymn shop’s open all the time; so if you have a favorite hymn you’d like to share, just let us know.


An Answered Prayer, Plus Hymn Request

I’m hurrying to get this posted before Joshua goes to bed. I don’t know what time it is in Japan, but it’s either very late or very early. Oh, well, he can see it when he gets up again: Blessed Assurance, sung by Alan Jackson.

And on top of it, we’ve got some good news–an answered prayer.

On May 5 Joshua asked us to pray for his grandmother and aunt in Japan, who had heard of the Gospel but not yet received it. Today Joshua reports that both are now reading the Gospel of John–and may the Holy Spirit speak to them! In Jesus’ name, Amen.


By Request, ‘Turn Your Eyes Upon Jesus’

This hymn request by Erlene couldn’t have come at a better time–Turn Your Eyes Upon Jesus, sung by Alan Jackson.

O Jesus our Lord, turn your eyes upon us. We need you!


‘The Old Rugged Cross’

This hymn always used to make me cry, when I was a little boy. It still moves me today. The Old Rugged Cross, sung by Alan Jackson: we don’t forget.


‘Sweet Hour of Prayer’ (Alan Jackson)

My mother and my aunts used to sing this as they did their housework: this hymn breaks them back to me. Sweet Hour of Prayer, sung by Alan Jackson–you can feel it, can’t you?


‘I Love to Tell the Story’ (Alan Jackson)

Well, I managed to fail in my first attempt to provide a hymn for Tuesday morning–which, if I don’t fail again, will be this morning, while you’re reading this… Oh, bother.

Here’s Alan Jackson with I Love to Tell the Story.


By Request, ‘In the Garden’

Both Erlene and Phoebe called for this one, so here it is–In the Garden, sung by Alan Jackson.

And now to wait for the snowstorm…
