You didn’t think I’d let New Year’s Eve pass without posting this, did you? All Glory Be to Christ: words by Dustin Kensrue, performed by Kings Kaleidoscope, to the tune of “Auld Lang Syne.”
May the glory of our Lord cover the earth as the water covers the sea.
Usually I post this around Christmastime, but it was in my mind all yesterday afternoon, and I like to heed such promptings–All Glory Be to Christ, performed by King’s Kaleidoscope. Simple, but I find it very moving. Full of Scriptural echoes.
It’s New Year’s Eve, and you’re going to hear a lot of Auld Lang Syne. Fine, that’s as it should be, it’s nice. But here we put the tune to the service of Our Lord Jesus Christ. I don’t know about you, but this goes straight to my heart: All Glory Be to Christ by King’s Kaleidoscope, sung by Dustin Kensrue. I’m only going to post it once today–but you can listen as often as you like.
I fell in love with this hymn–was it sometime last year, that I first heard it? All Glory Be to Christ, by King’s Kaleidoscope (with an assist from Psalm 127). Please don’t mind my posting it again!
Our day here got off to a poor start, but the Lord has straightened it out for us and I am soooo tired–suddenly everything I write looks like Joe Collidge, and has to be corrected. Oh, well. And I hope you don’t mind that I post this hymn again–All Glory Be to Christ, by King’s Kaleidoscope. I just had a powerful hankering to hear it.
Meanwhile, we’ve just had word that our dear friend Erlene is sick in bed today–so let’s send up a prayer for her. Please, O Lord–hear us on behalf of our sister, Erlene, and raise her up and heal her speedily. She is your servant, and a sheep of your pasture, as are we all–and we need our Shepherd. Be swift to help her, Father! In Jesus’ name, amen.
This is one of those hymns that makes me feel the nearness of my God: my Redeemer is at hand. It evokes all the loves in my life–the loves that last: even the sharp, intense love of just a single moment in time that you remember all your life. All Glory Be to Christ, sung by Dustin Kensrue, performed by Kings Kaleidoscope–oh, yes. God is nigh.
I’ve never done this before, run the same hymn two days in a row. But this one, All Glory Be to Christ, moves me so deeply, I just don’t want to let go of it. Thing is, I don’t want to let go of Jesus.
If you can sing along without your eyes tearing and your throat choking up, my hat is off to you.
Dustin Kensrue took the old traditional song of Auld Lang Syne and wrote new lyrics for it, as a hymn: All Glory Be to Christ. I tried to sing along, but couldn’t do it without tearing up. I am not ashamed to pay that widow’s mite to Him.
