Bonus Hymn, ‘All Creatures of Our God and King’

I found myself in a kind of odd position, spiritually–thanking God for click beetles. And that sent me in search of this hymn, All Creatures of Our God and King, sung by the Altar of Praise Chorale. It expresses what I’m feeling.

Man, are you out to lunch? Getting all moony over click beetles! [It’s all right, Lord, I’m not listening to them. Thank you for the wonderful works of your hands!]

I almost cut this off and went looking for another version of this hymn as soon as I heard the first few syllables of the music; but I stuck with it, and I’m glad I did. The photos of God’s handiwork are gorgeous–and there are times you want a hymn to be bold and assertive.

By Request, ‘All Creatures of Our God and King’ (with Prayer)

We have a hymn request today from Susan–All Creatures of Our God and King, sung by the congregation of Grace Community Church in Sun Valley, California.

To which I add a prayer:

O Lord our God! Bless this Easter, 2020, crippled in the flesh, with a double portion of spiritual wealth: give it extraordinary power to draw souls to Jesus Christ Our Lord and Savior: souls to be comforted, souls to be washed, souls to be saved. Let the spirit of this Easter Sunday work all year, O Lord–every day and every night, all year. In Jesus’ name, Amen.

That last nooze post jangled me pretty bad, and I’m grateful to Joshua for this hymn request. In fact, this particular hymn, with these visuals, was exactly what I needed.

I reckoned I’d better process Joshua’s hymn request now, so he can enjoy it–I can’t even guess what time it is for him, in Japan.

All Creatures of Our God and King, performed by Maranatha! Music–and what can we say but Amen?

I’ve tagged this hymn “Sanity Medicine” because I think we’re going to need it in that capacity today.
