I’d never heard this old-fashioned gospel song until today–Noah Found Grace in the Eyes of the Lord, sung by a young Burl Ives–whose voice stayed young throughout his long career. One of the Youtube commenters said he loved this song when he was a very young child… although he thought “Grace” was Noah’s wife.
Before I cover any more nooze–if I cover any more nooze–we have a hymn request from Joshua: Embrace the Cross, sung by Steve Green.
It’s not as easy to do as we might think.
Phoebe asked for this hymn–Take My Hand, Precious Lord, by Jim Reeves. She’s feeling a little under the weather today, so let’s remember to include her in our prayers.
Lydia asked for this one–When I Cry, sung by students at Fountainview Academy. It reminds me of the shortest verse in the Bible: “Jesus wept” (John 11:35). It’s amazing, how much can be said in just two words.
Yes, we’ve posted this before; but we won’t be any the worse for hearing it again. Our God Is an Awesome God, by Michael W. Smith–with most of the singing done by the concert audience.
Our God truly is an awesome God, maker of heaven and earth and all that is in them…
Requested by Phoebe: Just a Closer Walk with Thee, sung by Carroll Roberson. There are a lot of performers who sing this one. I’d never heard it before; but I love the painting illustrating the song.
Requested by Joshua: Though You Slay Me, by Shane and Shane–with a snatch of sermon by John Piper.
The things that hurt us really hurt us–but they are not meaningless. Nothing God does is meaningless.
You wouldn’t believe how bad our weather is today, here in central Jersey. But this hymn request from Joshua has brightened it up: My Savior’s Love, by Maranatha Music.
We have this beautiful worship song as a hymn request from Susan–Is He Worthy? by Andrew Peterson. Yes! The lion of the tribe of Judah is worthy to open the scroll!
Keep the hymns coming, folks. We need ’em.
Requested by Joshua, here’s a song to bring us a little closer to the glorious day of Easter–The Easter Song, by GLAD.
We have no king but Christ.
