By Request, ‘Leaning on the Everlasting Arms’

Requested by Erlene: here’s a rousing rendition of a beloved old hymn, Leaning on the Everlasting Arms, by the choir and congregation of the Church of God. Turn up the volume and sing along–make a joyful noise unto the Lord.

‘He Hideth My Soul’

A classic hymn by Fanny Crosby, sung by the choir and congregation at The Church of God–He Hideth My Soul. With lyrics so you can sing along. This is a hymn that often comes to me.

‘Yield Not to Temptation’

An old Sunday school favorite, Yield Not to Temptation–written by Horatio Palmer in 1868, performed here by the choir and congregation at The Church of God. It’s their usual high-spirited rendition.

‘What a Friend We Have in Jesus’ (Church of God)

What a Friend We Have in Jesus–sometimes I whistle it as I walk along, and sometimes someone else will pause in whatever he’s doing, look up, and smile. There’s hope for us yet.

Turn up the volume and sing along.


Hymn, ‘Yield Not to Temptation’

Yield Not to Temptation is one of my favorite hymns. I heard it in an old movie the other day and it’s still with me. Here it’s sung a capella by the choir at the Church of God. This bunch can really sing!

As usual the youtube page for this hymn featured an f-bomb laden comment by some atheist. I guess we ought to pray for these lost souls who reject salvation. But it’s hard to make such prayers.

Again, ‘What a Friend We Have in Jesus’

I don’t know about you, but I could use a hymn right about now. This hymn, in fact.

I have family things going on that I haven’t been able to write about yet. Maybe tomorrow. Things happen. Nothing that anyone can help, or avoid.

So now, now, take it to the Lord in prayer.

Hymn, ‘To God Be the Glory’

Here’s another hymn I never heard before, another high-spirited rendition by the Church of God. That congregation can really sing!

So let’s start our Sunday giving glory to God, and letting Him hear our thanksgiving and praise. Greater is He that is in us than he that is in the world!

Remember, I’m taking suggestions for hymns to post on Sunday morning, so if there’s a hymn you’d like to see posted here, please let me know.
