No hymn contest entries today so far, so I’ll go with one of my own favorites–in fact, an old Sunday school favorite: This Is My Father’s World, sung here by Fernando Ortega.
“This is my Father’s world, and let me ne’er forget/ that tho’ the wrong seems oft so strong, He is the ruler yet…”
What say we start with a hymn by Fernando Ortega? How Deep the Father’s Love For Us comes with no frills–just the message of God’s all-encompassing love, and salvation in Jesus Christ Our Lord.
A grey and dreary morning, out here in the world–but let’s refresh it with a hymn: Come, Thou Fount of Every Blessing, sung by Fernando Ortega. Oh, how we need our Savior! Be not far from us, O Lord.
Start the day with a hymn–I Will Praise Him, Still by Fernando Ortega.
What more needs to be said?
We have to thank Joshua for requesting this–Oh, the Deep, Deep Love of Jesus, sung by Audrey Assad and Fernando Ortega. Another lovely hymn, Morning Has Broken, also goes with this melody.
I’ve been scanning and listening to nooze this morning, lacerating my soul. But this hymn shares the good news that heals the soul.
I just remember I have to write Newswithviews today! But first a hymn, requested by Joshua–Let the Words of My Mouth, by Fernando Ortega: from Psalm 19:14 and Phillipians 4:8. Background sets by God the Father. Thank you, Joshua: this is good for us.
This is another hymn you don’t want to miss–Stricken, Smitten, and Afflicted. Requested by SlimJim, sung by Fernando Ortega. Scripture per Isaiah, Peter, and Paul.
We do well to remember by whom we are saved, and how He had to do it.
I thought we needed this today: …And let me ne’er forget/ That tho’ the wrong seems oft so strong,/ God is the ruler yet. And He can see what a hash we’ve made of things.
This Is My Father’s World, sung by Fernando Ortega; with background sets by God the Father.
We had to go to six different stores this morning, stocking up for Christmas Week, and I’m afraid it wore me out and frazzled my nerves. But I’m back now, we got everything we needed–and this hymn, requested by Joshua, was just the ticket! Thank you, Joshua–I’m sure I’m not the only one who will love this.
What Child Is This, sung by Fernando Ortega… Thanks, we needed that.
