The music for this hymns, Christ Triumphant, Ever Reigning, was composed in 1948; so it’s only a year older than me. I wish I could tell you who was singing it, but YouTube didn’t provide that information. We’ve got the lyrics, so you can sing it, too.
No hymn requests today so far, so here’s one I’ve picked: I Sing the Mighty Power of God, written by Isaac Watts in 1715 and still going strung, sung here by the Mountain Anthems. Background sets by God the Father.
No requests received this morning, so I’m on my own and this is the hymn I want to hear today–Jesus Saves, sung at Reformed Synod 2012, held at Nyack, New York, on the mighty Hudson River. I don’t know a hymn more beautiful than this.
First hymn that came to mind today–Praise Ye the Lord the Almighty, sung by the choir at the Laodicean Church of God. How many times did we sing this in my old church, before it went all weird and wobbly on us?
Our computers are being extremely uncooperative today, so please bear with me.
Elder Mike requested this hymn, sung by a Welsh choir, but I was unable to find that on YouTube, and my first choice of a substitute is “No Longer Available,” so I guess this is about the best I can do today–Joyful, Joyful We Adore Thee, sung by the Mennonite Hour Choir: music, of course, by Beethoven.
I need a hymn to start the day, and this was the first one I found–Turn Your Eyes Upon Jesus, sung by the Living Stones Quartet. (Yes, I know there are seven people in the picture! But only four of them sing.)
