‘Hail the Day That Sees Him Rise’

Hail the Day That Sees Him Rise, a hymn for Ascension Day by Charles Wesley–last night was the first time I’d heard it. I think it’s a hymn that’ll stay with you for a while, Performed by St. Michael’s Singers.


‘O, For a Thousand Tongues to Sing’

This is a wonderful rendition of a Charles Wesley hymn by St. Michael’s Singers–O, For a Thousand Tongues to Sing.

If you’re new here: we like to start each blogging day with a hymn, and I’m always open for hymn requests. If you have a favorite hymn you’d like to share, all you have to do is say so.


‘Light of the World’

I hope you don’t mind my posting this again, one of my favorite hymns–Light of the World by Charles Wesley, performed by Maddy Prior and the Carnival Band. I need Christ’s light, this sabbath day.


‘I Know That My Redeemer Lives’

Job said it first; but then Charles Wesley said it, and now Maddy Prior and the Carnival Band sing it: I Know That My Redeemer Lives.

Background sets by God the Father, maker of heaven and earth.


‘Depth of Mercy’

This hymn by Charles Wesley, Depth of Mercy, first appeared in hymnals in 1780. Sung here by the kids at Fountainview Academy. It must have taken an act of faith to get a grand piano up there by the lip of the quarry.


‘Light of the World’

I hope you don’t mind my posting this again–Light of the World, by Charles Wesley, performed by Maddy Prior and the Carnival Band–it’s one of my favorites.

I’ll post your favorite hymns, too. All you’ve got to do is ask.


‘I Know That My Redeemer Lives’

We are all sinners and we all need redemption. God knows this, and has provided it–in the person of His Son, Jesus Christ.

‘Light of the World’

I hope you don’t mind me posting this hymn again–Light of the World, by Charles Wesley, performed by Maddy Prior and the Carnival Band. This is a pretty dark world without the light of Jesus Christ!


‘Lo He Comes with Clouds Descending’

Here’s another Charles Wesley hymn by Maddy Prior and the Carnival Band–Lo He Comes with Clouds Descending. This is the event longed for by every Christian in the world.

And in the meantime: sing, pray, work.


By Request, ‘Christ the Lord is Risen Today’

Yes, I know I posted this hymn just the other day. But Erlene requested it just now, Easter is coming, and this is surely one of the Easter hymns–Christ the Lord is Risen Today, written by Charles Wesley in 1739; sung here by the Yoder family.

With gorgeous photos of God’s handiwork, proclaiming His glory and His love, and His ever-present nearness to us.
