By Request: ‘Sometimes Alleluia’

Linda asked for this one: Sometimes Alleluia, by Chuck Girard.

For those of you who are new to this site, we take hymn requests every day. If you have a favorite hymn or worship song you’d like to see posted here, don’t be  bashful–leave a comment and let us know.

Spiritual Refreshment

I think we could all do with some spiritual refreshment today, and Linda has suggested this: Lay Your Burden Down, by Chuck Girard. Thanks, Linda, and I’ll get to your other hymn request tomorrow morning.

By Special Request: ‘God’s Gonna Cut You Down’ (Johnny Cash)

Modern Christians, many of them, don’t like to think about God’s just wrath and do all they can to dismiss it from their minds. But it’s part of the way the world works, and to ignore it is to ignore reality. Be of good cheer, though: forgiveness and redemption through Jesus Christ is also part of how the world works.

If some of the faces in this video seem hauntingly familiar, it’s because they all belonged to famous criminals who came to bad ends. As Psalm 73 reminds us, they don’t get away with it forever: Surely thou didst set them in slippery places: thou castedst them down into destruction. How are they brought into desolation, as in a moment! they are utterly consumed with terrors (verses 18-19).

Warnings of God’s wrath are meant to move us to repentance. They should be heeded.

It’s hard to imagine anyone but Johnny Cash singing this.

Encore by Request: ‘Soldiers of the Lion’

Requested by Linda, seconded by Erlene: Soldiers of the Lion, by Chuck Girard.

Hey, out there–if there’s a hymn you really like, and I’ve posted it before, you can always ask for it again. We do reruns!

‘Thy Word is a Lamp unto My Feet’

Thy word is a lamp unto my feet, and a light unto my path.  –Psalm 119:105

How I love this song! This is the one that I woke up with this morning, so I’m posting it again today. I usually post the one performed by Amy Grant, but this by the Maranatha Singers is quite beautiful.

O Lord, may your word indeed by a lamp unto our feet and a light unto our path, for all of us who call upon your name!

Bonus Hymn: ‘I Surrender All’

I hope you don’t mind an extra hymn this morning. This one’s special to Erlene, who’s been humming it today: I Surrender All, sung by Don Moen. But of course it’s for all of us together.

By Request, ‘Elohim’

I have to admit this moved me: Elohim, sung by David Wesley. The background pictures of God’s handiwork–well, that always moves me, too.

Requested by Susan–and hey, everybody: we take hymn requests, and anyone can make one. Step right up, don’t be bashful: the hymn shop’s open every day, and everything in it is free.

‘Blessings’ from Fountainview

This is Blessings, by Laura Story, performed by Fountainview Academy students Ellen Richards and Ryo Fusamae: it’s kind of a blessing to watch and listen to it. I hope it’s a nice start to your Sunday.

‘The Lord’s My Shepherd’

This is a paraphrase of the 23rd Psalm–The Lord’s My Shepherd, by Stuart Townend. Note the flowing stream. Who has never rested beside a stream like that has missed a very good thing. The works of God’s hands testify to His goodness, His power, and His love.

‘Shine, Jesus, Shine’

Requested by Linda: Shine, Jesus, Shine by Graham Kendrick.

Folks, I’m sick with an allergy attack, I pray it’ll be over by suppertime; and for the time being, I’ll do what I can to keep this blog going.
