By Request, ‘Make Me a Captive, Lord’

Requested by Susan: Make Me a Captive, Lord, sung by students from Fountainview Academy–standing under a banyan tree on their visit to Hawaii.

If you have a hymn you’d like to share here, just let us know, and we’ll post it for you.

By Request, ‘For the Beauty of the Earth’

Here’s a good old Sunday school favorite, requested by Thewhiterabbit–For the Beauty of the Earth, sung here by Michelle Swift.

I have a doctor’s appointment this morning, so I’m up early to get this day’s blog started.

‘Trust and Obey’

I just felt like hear this–an old Sunday school favorite, Trust and Obey. I do wish I knew who’s singing it–beautiful harmony, and background sets by God the Father.

‘Praise to the Lord, the Almighty’

It’s not easy to sing a quintet by yourself, but that’s what David Wesley achieves.

Posted by my friend “OhioChessFan” on my chess page–Praise To the Lord the Almighty, sung in glorious harmony by David Wesley.

By Request, ‘Down to the River to Pray’

Requested by our friend SlimJim, a good old-fashioned hymn–Down to the River to Pray, sung by Alison Krauss.

It makes me wonder if my church was missing something, not doing full-immersion baptisms.

By Request, ‘Days of Elijah’

Requested by Erlene, one of the all-time favorite posts here–Days of Elijah, sung by a whole mess hall full of United States Marines.

And they sing it like they mean it!

‘To God Be the Glory’

I had a hankering for this hymn today; and as there are no hymn requests as yet this morning, and none pending–well, why not? To God Be the Glory, in a mountain meadow, performed by the students at Fountainview Academy.

‘What a Friend We Have in Jesus’ (Fountainview)

There are so many beautiful renditions of this hymn. Here’s one by the kids at Fountainview Academy–What a Friend We Have in Jesus. This is a real Sunday school favorite; and a few people have told me they like it when I whistle it as I walk through their neighborhood.

‘This Is My Father’s World’

It’s positively freezing, up here in Jersey-land; and yet all the trees are suddenly in bud, and even our ancient dogwood tree has opened up its blossoms. God’s stuff is on the move.

Here’s a new rendition of a classic hymn, This Is My Father’s World, performed by Keith & Kristyn Getty… with plenty of beautiful things to enjoy.

‘Revive Us Again’

Well, I need reviving, that’s for sure. But we’ll save that for the next post.

Revive Us Again, sung at home by Nathan and Lyle, a good old-fashioned hymn from the 1860s. I once whistled this to a couple of deer… who seemed to like it.
