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.
(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.
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.
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.
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.
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.”
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.
Joshua requested this beautiful hymn, Safe in the Arms of Jesus, sung by the Altar of Praise Chorale.
Look at the scenery. Is it any wonder that God, after He had finished His work of creation, pronounced it very good?
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.
