This is another worship song by Keith and Kristyn Getty, requested by Susan–May the Peoples Praise You.
I’ve been recycling a lot of my favorite hymns lately, so readers’ hymn requests are much appreciated: they bring in hymns I haven’t heard before. So if you have a hymn request, the ol’ hymn shop’s always open.
I was hoping for some hymn requests, and we have this one from Susan: O Church Arise, by Keith and Kristyn Getty with an assist from Chris Tomlin. Inspired by Isaiah Chapter 60, “Arise, shine, for thy light has come.”
I can’t always find the hymns I’m asked to post, but I do the best I can. This is for Erlene, I Want My Life to Bring Glory to God–but I don’t know who this is who’s singing it, and I don’t know where they are. But at least the title’s right!
Requested by Erlene–The Prayer, sung by Andrea Bocelli and Katharine McPhee. I usually save Bocelli for Christmas-time, but it won’t hurt to showcase him in June.
Looking for new hymns to post this morning, I found this–Christ Our Hope in Life and Death, by Keith and Kristyn Getty, with Matt Papa. Background sets by God the Father.
Susan has been coming up with some wonderful new hymns for us lately, like this one: His Mercy Is More, by Keith and Kristyn Getty, performed here by Matt Papa and Matt Boswell. “Our sins they are many, His mercy is more.” They got that right!
Boy, was my soul ready for this!
Requested by Susan, My Worth Is Not in What I Own, by Fernando Ortega with Keith and Kristyn Getty. Feel free to play it more than once!
Yeah, this is more of that gospel foolishness that Real Smart People laugh at.
But we know the foolishness of God is wiser than men–by a long shot.
Requested by Susan: a new worship song, Forever Jesus, written by Matt Papa and Stuart Townend, performed by them with Keith and Kristyn Getty. With background sets by God the Father.
Take a spiritual from the Caribbean, transplant it to the cold waters and bleak Western coasts of Scotland–and you’ll get something like this. Oh, Sinner Man! Where You Gonna Run To? asks a question that isn’t easy to answer.
We have a hymn request from Susan–His Eye Is on the Sparrow, by Her Heart Sings/Sounds Like Reign. I somehow missed it in the email during the day.
Anyway, we do take hymn requests, the hymn shop’s open to everyone; so if you have a hymn you’d like to share, just leave a comment anywhere.
