By Request, ‘All Creatures of Our God and King’

A Sunday school favorite, the next entry in our hymn contest today–requested by “thewhiterabbit,” sung by the Altar of Praise Chorale: All Creatures of Our God and King.

By Request, ‘All Creatures of Our God and King’

Suggested by Thewhiterabbit–All Creatures of Our God and King, sung by the Altar of Praise Chorale.

By Request, ‘O Sacred Head Now Wounded’

Requested by Phoebe–and there are several versions available. I chose this one because it’s the one my 7th-grade class sang in our Easter concert. Can you imagine that? ACLU lawyers would have conniptions…

So here it is, O Sacred Head Now Wounded: melody by Bach, sung by the Altar of Praise Chorale.

‘Softly and Tenderly’

This is No. 50 from the list of Your Favorite Hymns, so it’s time to add another 50. What we usually get is just a few readers suggesting lots of hymns. How about a lot of readers suggesting lots of hymns? We won’t run out of them!

But for today–Softly and Tenderly, sung by the Altar of Praise Chorale.

‘I’ll Have a New Life’

(Well, at least I got a hymn posted today!)

Yes, I’m running late. I’ll explain it by and by. But first a hymn–I’ll Have a New Life, sung by the Altar of Praise Chorale, with gorgeous background sets by God the Father.

‘Safe in the Arms of Jesus’

I had never heard this hymn before–but after yesterday’s alarms and frustrations, I need to learn its lesson. Safe in the Arms of Jesus, by the Altar of Praise Chorale: and don’t go away, because we have a hymn request from Joshua coming right up.

‘Rescue the Perishing’

You can’t go wrong here–a hymn written by Fanny Crosby (from 1868) and sung by the Altar of Praise Chorale: with God’s gorgeous handiwork for stage sets, and a message from the Gospel.

‘Safe in the Arms of Jesus’

Fanny Crosby wrote more than 8,000 hymns in her career: let’s have one now. Safe in the Arms of Jesus (1868), sung by the Altar of Praise Chorale–if they sang a different Fanny Crosby hymn every day, it would take some 20 years to sing them all.

‘Softly and Tenderly’

I heard this hymn for the first time yesterday, in a movie–Softly and Tenderly (Jesus Is Calling), sung here by the Altar of Praise Chorale. The movie was O. Henry’s Full House.

This was posted on Youtube as a prayer for Lois. We join in saying “Amen.”

‘Face to Face with Christ, My Saviour’

This is another 19th-century hymn I hadn’t heard before–Face to Face with Christ, My Saviour. Sung a capella by the Altar of Praise Chorale. Background sets by God the Father.
