‘Light of the World’

Let me start the blog day with one of my favorite hymns, Light of the World, by Charles Wesley, sung by Maddy Prior and the Carnival Band.

If you’re new here, I post hymns by request and the hymn shop is open all day. If you have a hymn you’d like to share, just let us know–leave a comment anywhere.

Bonus Hymn: ‘Come O Thou Traveler Unknown’

I’m having a really hard time getting untracked this morning: just worn out, I guess. Perhaps a hymn will freshen me…

Come O Thou Traveler Unknown, written by Charles Wesley, sung by Maddy Prior and the Carnival Band, is about Jacob wrestling with the Angel of the Lord and winning a perpetual blessing by it.

I’m not sure what I’m wrestling with.

‘And Can It Be?’

Let’s start the day with a Charles Wesley hymn–And Can It Be?, sung the old-fashioned way by Maddy Prior and the Carnival Band.

We take hymn requests, everybody.

Haven’t posted this in a while: one of my favorite hymns, Light of the World by Charles Wesley, performed by Maddy Prior and the Carnival Band.

If you’re new here, we take hymn requests. If there’s a hymn you’d like to share, let us know.

‘Christ the Lord Is Risen Today’

Who says it’s a hymn you can only sing on Easter? Shout it from the housetops: He is risen! It is, after all, at the very heart of our faith. Christ the Lord is Risen Today, by Charles Wesley, sung by the Joslin Grove Choral Society.

‘O For a Thousand Tongues to Sing’

Spirited, lively, joyful (everything I’m not, this morning: had a bad night): Maddy Prior and the Carnival Band, with an old-fashioned rendition of Charles Wesley’s classic hymn, O For a Thousand Tongues to Sing. Like a wise lady once said, when things are looking bad… sing louder.

By Request, ‘Christ the Lord is Ris’n Today’ (Superb!)

Requested by Joshua–and I don’t know about you, but it was just what I needed, just now–Christ the Lord is Ris’n Today by Charles Wesley, performed by Maddy Prior and the Carnival Band. Three cheers!

‘And Can It Be’

A hymn by Charles Wesley, performed by Maddy Prior and the Carnival Band–And Can It Be. I do love those 18th-century hymns.

‘Light of the World’

I post this hymn so often because it’s one of my favorites–and I’ll post your favorites, too: all you have to do is ask. Some of you have been here for years and years and never requested a hymn.

‘Love Divine, All Loves Excelling’

Let’s start the day with a Charles Wesley hymn and pray for the best–Love Divine, All Loves Excelling, sung by the Joslin Grove Choral Society.
