Choir, orchestra, and organ all together–for this glorious hymn, All Hail the Power of Jesus’ Name, performed at Boe Memorial Chapel, St. Olaf’s College.
My most vivid memory of this hymn is from YMCA summer camp, sung by the counselors for Sunday morning service at the outdoor chapel on the hilltop, overlooking a patchwork of fields and woodlands. Too beautiful ever to forget.
Sung the old-fashioned way by Maddy Prior and the Carnival Band, All Hail the Power of Jesus’ Name–and we’re going to need the power of that name: there is no other name by which we might be saved.
Please don’t mind me posting my favorite hymns fairly often. I’ll post yours, too–all you’ve got to do is ask. Only a few of you ask, but the hymn shop’s open to all.
All Hail the Power of Jesus’ Name, sung by the choir at First Plymouth Church in Lincoln, Nebraska.
This is the melody I know best for All Hail the Power of Jesus’ Name, here sung as a processional by the choir and congregation at First Plymouth Church in Lincoln, Nebraska.
One of my most vivid memories is of the outdoor chapel at YMCA camp, overlooking a glorious vista of hills and fields and woodlands, with the camp counselors’ quartet belting out this hymn for all they were worth. Even just thinking of it now, going on 60 years later, deeply moves me.
To my dumbfounded surprise, I am able to post this hymn this morning (it didn’t work at first!)–All Hail the Power of Jesus’ Name, sung by Blue Rock Mennonite Youth.
This was always one of my favorite hymns, although in our Dutch Reformed Church, it came with an entirely different melody.
This old hymn–All Hail the Power of Jesus’ Name–has always been one of my favorites, and I love the way they sing it at Temple Baptist Church in Powell, Tennessee. You might want to turn up the volume for this one!
We sing “All Hail the Power of Jesus’ Name,” and so we should. But it would do us good to pause and think about that power–because we are flat-out lost without it.
Don’t believe me? Look at places, look into people’s lives, where that power is explicitly denied. Look at the shambles we’ve made of our world. I glanced at the news for just two or three minutes this morning and got sick to my stomach.
We and our world wouldn’t last another 15 minutes without the power of God’s grace.
I’ve been calling upon my Lord Jesus’ Christ by name a lot, lately. I do that, Lord, because I believe in you and I believe your word.
All Hail the Power of Jesus’ Name–and the congregation at Temple Baptist Church in Tennessee are not a bit bashful about singing it.
He is King of Kings and Lord of Lords, Christ Pantokrator, Ruler of All–and He is ours, and we are His.
All Hail the Power of Jesus’ Name, written by Edward Perronet in 1779, is sung to severdal different melodies, depending on whose hymnal you’re using. It has been nicknamed “the National Anthem of Christianity”–I guess because it’s sung in so many churches, belonging to so many denominations.
The power of Jesus’ name is something we need in our lives: to be without it is too horrible to contemplate. We need it here today, at my house; and for Jesus’ sake, everybody, please keep our fellow-servant Linda in your prayers: may the Lord deliver her out of danger. In truth we all ought to be praying for one another.
This video is by the choir and congregation of the Temple Baptist Church in Tennessee: they bring it when they sing it! All Hail the Power of Jesus’ Name… Amen!
