All right, Christmas is over, let’s get back to everyday hymns and worship songs. We’re taking requests every day.
Requested by Erlene: this is I Surrender All (All to Jesus), performed by Casting Crowns.
The Baby is out of the manger and working in the world.
Thou shalt no more be termed Forsaken; neither shall thy land any more be termed Desolate: but thou shalt be called Hephzibah, and thy land Beulah: for the Lord delighteth in thee, and thy land shall be married. —Isaiah 62:4
Requested by Susan: Beulah Land, first published in 1875, sung by Casting Crowns. A beautiful hymn to start the day.
You might want to turn up the volume on this one–Voice of Truth, performed by Casting Crowns. Requested by Allison.
Good advice here: listen to, and believe, the voice of truth. Not the voice of this fallen world, but that of God’s word and of His Holy Spirit.
By request, While You Were Sleeping by Casting Crowns, from their Christmas album.
There are some who object to the “right-wing politics” in this song, particularly the verse with mentions American “philosophies” such as “save the trees and kill the children,” and describes the USA as “a nation with no room for its king.”
Well, Christ was King of Kings before anyone invented “right-wing politics.” Abortion was a moral wrong 2,000 years ago and it’s still a wrong today, never mind a “president” who says it’s the way young girls achieve their dreams.
But the King will come whether anybody likes it or not: for the Lord hath spoken it.
