We have this hymn request from Erlene–He Looked Beyond My Faults, by Carroll Roberson. She’s not feeling quite the ticket today, so let’s keep her in our prayers.
I consider it a blessing that I live in a time and place in which there are no public crucifixions. That makes it difficult to understand the horror of such a thing, and the magnitude of Our Lord’s sacrifice: that he should have consented to undergo the cross for our sake is almost more than I can grasp.
Requested by Erlene: A Moment of Time, by Carroll Roberson.
No more nooze today, I’ve had it. But we’re always open for hymn requests.
Requested by Phoebe: Just a Closer Walk with Thee, sung by Carroll Roberson. There are a lot of performers who sing this one. I’d never heard it before; but I love the painting illustrating the song.
We have a hymn request from Erlene, and here it is–Lord, Take All That I Have (“for you gave it to me”).
Every good thing we have ever known has been God’s gift to us.
See? I don’t have to do politics, when hymn requests are coming in! Although for me to stop covering the former would be, I know, not doing my job.
Requested by Erlene–Carroll Roberson, A Moment in Time.
We have to remember that we are privileged to answer to a higher authority than any that can be found in this fallen world of ours.
Requested by Erlene–He Looked Beyond My Fault (“and saw my need”), sung by Carroll Roberson. And yes, the melody is one that most of us know as “Danny Boy,” here put to God’s service.
This is Erlene’s hymn request, and I’m not sure I’ve found exactly the one she had in mind–but I do my best. “Prayer is the key to heaven,” sings Carroll Roberson, but Faith Unlocks the Door.
Thomas believed in Jesus because he saw the wounds in His hands and feet and side; but Jesus said, as the hymn tells us, “Blessed are those who have not seen, and believe.”
Requested by Erlene, Blessed Are Those Who’ve Never Seen, by Carroll Roberson.
This is Erlene’s hymn request that I was too tired to post last night–It’s Christmas Time All Over the World, by Carroll Roberson. Sorry, but after supper, I just folded. So here it is today.
Yes, we’re back–in one piece. There were only a few kamikazes on the Parkway today, and they weren’t able to get us. We had a nice time and a nice dinner with my brother and sister, and now we’re home: we thank the Lord for that.
And to all of you who showed up here today, while we were out, thank you very much, and Merry Christmas!
I’ve gone as far as I can go today toward catching up on your Christmas hymn requests. But tomorrow we’ll have more!
Requested by Erlene–Christmas Means Heaven to Me, by Carroll Roberson.
