By Request, ‘This Good Day’

Here’s one of those hymns we were asking for: requested by Joshua, This Good Day (“it is a gift from you”), by Fernando Ortega.

Whatever happens, God is nigh.

By Request, ‘Pass Me Not, O Gentle Savior’

Requested by SlimJim–Pass Me Not, O Gentle Savior. Let’s go with Fernando Ortega.

Note to All: I do try to fulfill every hymn request, but occasionally one slips through the cracks and it looks like I rejected it. Computers don’t always deliver our messages properly. So if your hymn’s not here, please try again.

One More Beautiful Hymn: ‘I Will Sing of My Redeemer’

I’m so glad SlimJim requested this hymn. I’ve never heard it before, and it’s beautiful: moved me close to tears.

Sung by Fernando Ortega, I Will Sing of My Redeemer.

I have one more hymn request, but I think I’ll hold it over till tomorrow in case I need one then.

‘This Is My Father’s World’

And when God looked on His creation, which He had made, He saw that it was very good…

This Is My Father’s World, sung by Fernando Ortega. I think I want to hear this twice.

‘This Is My Father’s World’

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…”

‘How Deep the Father’s Love For Us’

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.

‘Come, Thou Fount of Every Blessing’

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.

‘I Will Praise Him Still’

Start the day with a hymn–I Will Praise Him, Still by Fernando Ortega.

What more needs to be said?

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.
