Requested by Susan: the Voices of Lee (Lee University) performing In Christ Alone. This worship song, a few years ago, was rejected by the Presbyterian Church USA because it mentions “the wrath of God” and flatline Protestants don’t like that. But it’s a great hymn–and God knows we need it.
I have two hymn requests this morning, and this one is from Linda–For Your Name is Holy, by Paul Wilbur. That’s Richard Harris in the video, playing St. John in the movie, Revelation: well worth seeing.
Now I have to go to the bank and work on Aunt Joan’s finances. I hope I can get it done quickly.
My wife asks this question a lot: “What does He see in us?” This worship song–Too Close to the Mirror, by Eddie Ruth Bradford–has some answers. “I’m too close to the mirror to see what you see in me.” And God sees you not just as you are, but also, He sees “what you’re going to be.” Much comfort in those words!
Thanks, Phoebe, for this hymn request.
Suggested by Erlene: Baruch Ha Ba by Joel Chernoff, “Blessed is He who comes in the name of the Lord” (Baruch haba b’Shem Adonai).
If we were to hold our peace, the very stones would proclaim Him.
Suggested by Erlene, Turn Your Eyes Upon Jesus. Music by Michael W. Smith, Inspiration by the Holy Spirit.
Remember, everybody, the hymn shop is always open, and open to all. If there’s a favorite hymn you’d like to see posted here, just let us know. You can do that by leaving a comment under this post.
Linda called for this one: Soldiers of the Lion, by Chuck Girard. The Lion of the Tribe of Judah (Revelation 5:5) is not a tame lion, and it is our glory to be allowed to enter into the labors of all His saints. And if the lyrics are a bit much for squishy, world-pleasing Christians–You’ve had the planet long enough… Get you back to outer darkness–well, that’s all to the good.
This is another one Susan suggested–Your Love Broke Through (Like Waking Up from the Longest Dream) by Keith Green.
Hopefully there are some newcomers to this blog today–can’t make any progress without ’em. If you’re new, and there’s a hymn you’d like to see posted here, just leave a comment anywhere on this blog and we’ll do the rest. The hymn shop is always open, and open to all.
Susan has asked for this one–The Easter Song, sung by The Second Chapter of Acts–so here it is.
Second Chapter of Acts is a Christian rock group named for that chapter in which the Holy Spirit first descends upon the first church in Jerusalem–as Jesus promised that it would.
Requested by Erlene, here is Rise Again by Dallas Holm.
Rejoice, rejoice in Easter!
Now let me see if I can find and post my favorite Easter movie clip for you.
This is a psalm about the Messiah, Our Lord Jesus Christ. It words provide no comfort to His enemies; but to us who love Him, they are sweet.
This is Good Friday, marking His humiliation and torment and death on the Cross–for us. For you and for me.
This Psalm is about what happens afterward.
