‘O Sacrament Most Holy’

I wish I knew who it was, singing this beautiful hymn, but that information is not given. O Sacrament Most Holy, in sweet harmony…

Your Favorite Hymns continues. Please feel free to add to the list.


‘O God, Our Help in Ages Past’

To continue with your favorite hymns–

Isaac Watts’ hymns from the 18th century are still much loved today. By request: O God, Our Help in Ages Past, sung by the Sharon Mennonite Bible Institute Singers. Background sets by God the Father.


‘In the Garden’ (Your Favorite Hymns)

Tell us your favorite hymns, and we’ll put them on the list and post them.

We continue with In the Garden, sung by Alan Jackson.


‘Holy God, We Praise Thy Name’

They play this hymn on the bells of St. Francis, across the street from me, and finally I know what it’s called–Holy God We Praise Thy Name. I don’t know who the singers are, so I’m not able to give them the credit they deserve.

We try to post your favorite hymns every day. Please feel free to add to the list.


‘There Is a Fountain’

We’re playing your favorite hymns at the start of each day. Today it’s There Is a Fountain, by Selah.

Just tell us your favorite hymns and we’ll add them to the list. You don’t have to name just one!


By Request, ‘I’d Rather Have Jesus’

If you read the preceding post, you know that this hymn wound up getting requested twice: I’d Rather Have Jesus. I chose this treatment by Lindsay, of “Her Heart Sings,” out of many available.

I’ll continue to post Your Favorite Hymns until I come to the end of the list. But there’s no reason why that would ever have to happen, because the list is always open.


‘What a Friend We Have in Jesus’

We continue with Your Favorite Hymns–as we’ll be doing for a while, as it’s become a long listen and you can always add to it.

What a Friend We Have in Jesus, sung by Doc Watson. How many times, I wonder, has he sung this hymn in public: and yet you can see how it moves him.

As it should move us.


‘O To Be Like Thee’

Going down the list of your favorite hymns as submitted by you, the readers, we come to another beautiful hymn with the performers not listed–O To Be Like Thee. Very sweet, whoever you are.

It’s not too late to have your favorite hymns added to the list. Just leave a comment anywhere.


‘Be Still, My Soul’

We’ve got over 40 of your favorite hymns on the list now, and we’re going to post each one of them. Don’t worry about being too late: the hymn shop’s always open.

This rendition of Be Still, My Soul is about the most beautiful I’ve ever heard–and I don’t know who’s singing it. But we know whose hand shaped the backgrounds, don’t we?


‘The Love of God’

I have a nice long list, now, of your favorite hymns, and I’m going to post them all in the order in which I received them. And the list can be added to, so don’t think you missed your chance.

Requested by Lydia (I think): The Love of God, by the Mennonite Hour Singers. Gorgeous background sets by God the Father.
