By Request, ‘The Sands of Time Are Sinking’

We have a hymn request from Heidi this morning, in memory of a well-loved brother of her church, who recently passed away: The Sands of Time Are Sinking, sung by Audrey Assad.

By Request, ‘It Is Well With My Soul’

Horatio Spafford wrote these lyrics after losing his wealth in the Chicago Fire and losing his children at sea. His point was: his soul is kept secure by Jesus Christ; and in that he can trust.

Requested by Erlene–It Is Well With My Soul, sung by Audrey Assad.

By Request, ‘How Can I Keep from Singing?’

We have a hymn request from Joshua–How Can I Keep from Singing?, by Audrey Assad.

Listen to the lyrics. I know my own heart is in dire need of freshening. Can’t do it myself. I wonder if my prayers are getting through. Please keep me and my family in yours.

Beautiful Bonus Hymn, ‘Oh, the Deep, Deep Love of Jesus’

We have to thank Joshua for requesting this–Oh, the Deep, Deep Love of Jesus, sung by Audrey Assad and Fernando Ortega. Another lovely hymn, Morning Has Broken, also goes with this melody.

I’ve been scanning and listening to nooze this morning, lacerating my soul. But this hymn shares the good news that heals the soul.

‘Ubi Caritas’

We have to thank Lisa for sending us this beautiful hymn by Audrey Assad, Ubi Caritas–“Where Charity Is,” in Latin.
