‘Trust and Obey’

Another Sunday school classic, here sung by the Vagle Brothers–Trust and Obey, with background sets by God the Father.

Encore, ‘All Hail the Power of Jesus’ Name’

I’ve been leaning on the power of Jesus’ name pretty heavily of late, and it’ll certainly do for a bonus hymn today: All Hail the Power of Jesus’ Name, written by Edward Perronet in 1779.

‘Praise to the Lord, the Almighty’

I’m doing the best I can, here, with the hymns. I only have a few minutes before the connection times out. So here (I hope!) is Praise to the Lord, the Almighty, sung by the Altar of Praise Men’s Chorale.

‘Yield Not to Temptation’

We haven’t posted this in a while: an old Sunday school favorite since 1868, Yield Not to Temptation, performed by Nathan and Lyle. We never would’ve thought of adding a mandolin.

‘Gloria in Excelsis Deo’

Please, Mr. Computer! Can I please post my hymn today? It’s Gloria in Excelsis Deo, sung by Libera. You like that, don’t you?

By Request, ‘Jesus Paid It All’

(If you knew what I had to go through, with this computer, to get this beautiful, soul-nourishing, serenity-producing hymn posted here–!)

We have a hymn request from Joshua: Jesus Paid It All, by Fernando Ortega. If you’re unfamiliar with Christianity, pay attention to the lyrics; they’ll tell you much of what you need to know.

‘When the Saints Go Marching In’

Our friend Whiterabbit mentioned this in passing, the other day (or was it yesterday?), and then I couldn’t get the tune out of my mind.

When the Saints Go Marching In, most famously performed by Louis Armstrong, is, in fact, a hymn: and here are the lyrics to prove it. I’d like to credit this singer, but I don’t know who she is.

‘Jesus Keep Me Near the Cross’

We have brothers and sisters in Christ whose names we’ll never know, whom we’ll never meet. But thanks to modern communications, at least we can see and hear them.

Jesus Keep Me Near the Cross–sung by the Voice of Eden, brought to us from India.

By Request, ‘Faith of Our Fathers’

Phoebe requested Faith of Our Fathers–the real one, with “in spite of dungeon, fire and sword.” I think of the souls waiting below the altar in Revelation 5: 9-11. God will avenge His saints.

This plainsong version is presented by Brother Alphonsus.

Special Encore, ‘Guide Us, O Thou Great Jehovah’

After bumming myself out on the nooze, and on comments by persons whose worldly wisdom moves them to surrender to the wicked and ungodly–and a thunder and hail storm, on top of it–this hymn marched into my mind and wouldn’t let up: and I had to have it.

Guide Us, O Thou Great Jehovah (Cwm Rhondda in Welsh), sung by choir and congregation at the Tabernacle Welsh Baptist Church–sing it loud, sing it loud!

For God is nigh.
