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.
From Your Favorite Hymns, All Creatures of Our God and King, performed by Maranatha Music.
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.
All Creatures of Our God and King, a good old-fashioned hymn performed by Fernando Ortega… with living things by God the Father.
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.
The Altar of Praise Chorale sings All Creatures of Our God and King, with background sets by God the Father, Maker of heaven and earth.
Some of you out there have never made a hymn request. Well, as soon as you want to, the hymn shop’s always open.
I do like to play this hymn now and then, All Creatures of Our God and King. This version is by the Altar of Praise Chorale. Grand Canyon by God the Father.
For those of you who are new here, we’re always open to hymn requests–the more, the better. If you have a favorite hymn you’d like to share, just leave a comment anywhere on the bog and we’ll do the rest.
I think this one might stick with me today.
Requested by Joshua, All Creatures of Our God and King, in an upbeat arrangement by Fernando Ortega–and I’m so glad he stopped short of making it sound like the Brazil 66.
Requested by Susan: the Norton Hall Band performing All Creatures of Our God and King.
You know me. My idea of a hymn is a lady in a flowered dress playing the piano, with ordinary people singing along like they really mean it. But here we have a classic hymn with a modern musical arrangement–and it’s great! Thank you, Susan.
Check this out. Words attributed to St. Francis of Assisi, c. 1225. Music, German, 1623. Performed today by the Norton Hall Band, All Creatures of Our God and King. Just another 800-year-old hymn we can still sing with a lot of oomph today.
Thank you, Susan, for suggesting it.
