‘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.


+’Light of the World’

The only excuse I have for posting this hymn umpteen times is, I love it: Light of the World by Charles Wesley, performed (18th century style) by Maddy Prior and the Carnival Band. I’m really sorry they took down the video that used to go with it.

The “+” in front of the title was a typographical error which I thought it better to let stand–as a cross.


‘O, For a Thousand Tongues to Sing’

You might want to turn up the volume on this one–O, For a Thousand Tongues to Sing, by Charles Wesley, sung by the congregation and choir at Grace Community Church, Sun Valley, California.


‘Light of the World’

I can’t help posting this hymn again–Light of the World, by Charles Wesley, sung by Maddy Prior and the Carnival Band.

‘Come, O Thou Traveler Unknown’

Charles Wesley wrote some 6,000 hymns. Come, O Thou Traveler Unknown is one of them. There may be another one on this video, too. If there is, consider it a bonus.

Maddy Prior and the Carnival Band, making the hymn sound like Wesley wrote it… over 250 years ago.


‘Soldiers of Christ, Arise’

Here’s another wonderful 18th century hymn by Charles Wesley–Soldiers of Christ, Arise–performed the old-fashioned way by Maddy Prior and the Carnival Band.

If there’s anybody out there with a favorite hymn you’d like to share, we do requests. Just “Leave a Reply” anywhere, and we’ll do the rest.


‘Light of the World’

Lord, we need your light!

I like the title of this album by Maddy Prior and the Carnival Band: “Sing Lustily and with Good Courage.” Or, as I once heard a wise woman say on the radio, “When things get dark, and you don’t know what to do–sing louder!”

Light of the World, by Charles Wesley: for the true Light, that lighteth everyone that cometh into the world.


By Request, ‘Christ Whose Glory Fills the Skies’

Requested by Jan (“Janowrite”), Charles Wesley’s Christ Whose Glory Fills the Skies, sung by the choir at Trinity Evangelical Lutheran Church in Worcester, Massachusetts–an Advent hymn.

Keep ’em comin’, folks!
