Beautiful Bonus Hymn, ‘Oh, the Deep, Deep Love of Jesus’

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.

By Request, ‘Let the Words of My Mouth’

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.

By Request, ‘Stricken, Smitten, and Afflicted’

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.

‘This Is My Father’s World’

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.

By Request, ‘What Child Is This’ (Fernando Ortega)

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.

‘This Is My Father’s World’

I loved this hymn in Sunday school, but I love it even more now. Enough beauty has been paved and bulldozed out of my environment to make me appreciate God’s work. This Is My Father’s World (“And tho’ the wrong seems oft so strong, God is the ruler yet”), sung by Fernando Ortega.
