‘Away With Our Sorrow and Care’

Here’s one I’d never heard before, a Charles Wesley classic–Away with Our Sorrow and Care, performed the old-fashioned way by Maddy Prior and the Carnival Band.

We’re still sick here, still in need of prayers. I still can’t focus long enough to write a Newswithviews piece.

‘O Thou Who Camest from Above’

I’d never heard this hymn before today–O Thou Who Camest from Above, by Charles Wesley: played and sung the old-fashioned way by Maddy Prior and the Carnival Band. This is what the hymn sounded like, two hundred years ago.

‘Light of the World’

Still sick, zero likes, zero comments–maybe a hymn by Charles Wesley can cheer things up around here. One of my favorite hymns: Light of the World, performed the old-fashioned way by Maddy Prior and the Carnival Band.

We thank you for your prayers.

By Request, ‘Come, Thou Long-Expected Jesus’

Another Advent hymn, this one requested by our friend SlimJim: Come, Thou Long-Expected Jesus, by Charles Wesley, sung by the Truro Cathedral Choir.

Attention, all readers! Our annual Christmas Carol Contest is under way, and we’d like to see a lot, yes, a lot, of entries!

‘Hark the Herald Angels Sing’

Am I jumping the gun with Christmas? No–follow the lyrics; there is no bad time for this.

Hark! The Herald Angels Sing–words by Charles Wesley, music by Mendelssohn, organ solo by Stephen Holowitz at St. James Anglican Church in London, Toronto.

‘Light of the World’

This hymn was in my head all day yesterday. I hope you don’t mind my posting it again, it’s one of my favorites–Light of the World by Charles Wesley, sung by Maddy Prior and the Carnival Band.

If you’re new hear, we take as many hymn requests as we can get. If you have a hymn you’d like to share, just say so, leave it as a comment anywhere… and we’ll do the rest.

‘Light of the World’

I love this hymn and that’s why it’s here–Light of the World, by Charles Wesley, performed the old-fashioned way by Maddy Prior and the Carnival Band. Even the darkness of this age can’t put out the light of Jesus Christ!

‘Light of the World’

No hymn requests, no hymn contest entries, this morning; so I’ll go with one of my favorites and hope for the best. The best has been making itself kind of scarce around here lately.

Light of the World, by Charles Wesley, sung by Maddy Prior and the Carnival Band–well, you can’t beat that, can you?

‘O, For a Thousand Tongues to Sing’

Can we do better than to start the day with a hymn by Charles Wesley, performed by Maddy Prior and the Carnival Band? O, For a Thousand Tongues to Sing–sung the old-fashioned way.

The hymn shop is open to all hymn requests today–so don’t be shy!

‘Light of the World’

I can’t think of a hymn I love more than this one–Light of the World, by Charles Wesley, performed the old-fashioned way by Maddy Prior and the Carnival Band.

It’s raining here again: no working on my book today. Maybe while I rest, a title will come to me. I have to wait for the Lord to give me one.
