(If you knew what I had to go through, with this computer, to get this beautiful, soul-nourishing, serenity-producing hymn posted here–!)
We have a hymn request from Joshua: Jesus Paid It All, by Fernando Ortega. If you’re unfamiliar with Christianity, pay attention to the lyrics; they’ll tell you much of what you need to know.
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.
Boy, was my soul ready for this!
Requested by Susan, My Worth Is Not in What I Own, by Fernando Ortega with Keith and Kristyn Getty. Feel free to play it more than once!
Yeah, this is more of that gospel foolishness that Real Smart People laugh at.
But we know the foolishness of God is wiser than men–by a long shot.
Hymn request by Joshua, contributing to our sabbath rest (God knows we need it!)–Great Is Thy Faithfulness, by Fernando Ortega. Background sets by God the Father.
This one’s for Joshua–favorite hymn, favorite artist–Be Thou My Vision, sung by Fernando Ortega. Haven’t heard from him or Jeremy for two weeks now. I pray they’re all right.
This hymn was first sung before anyone had ever heard of Charlemagne, and it’s still very popular today.
Too much hurly-burly! And on Good Friday, no less. Time to re-focus. Get back to the center of Creation, the Lord Our God. Time for a hymn.
Praise to the Lord, the Almighty: written by Joachim Neander in 1680, sung by Fernando Ortega. Background sets the work of God’s own hands.
This was a mighty good idea that Joshua had–to post Joy to the World… because we need it now, we need reminding that the Lord our Savior has come, has been here, has purchased our salvation– We celebrate His birth at Christmas, but Jesus Christ is Lord over all the days of the year, our shepherd and our king forever.
Sung by Fernando Ortega.
We have two hymn requests this morning instead of none, so I have hastened to post them! This one is There Is Power in the Blood, requested by Joshua, performed by Fernando Ortega.
If we ever needed hymns, we need them now.
This sweet hymn, I Will Sing of My Redeemer, was requested by Joshua. It’s already bedtime in Japan, but it’ll be here when he wakes. Performed by Fernando Ortega.
Requested by Susan–Take Heart, My Friend (“the Lord is with us”), sung by Fernando Ortega.
Without the Lord we wouldn’t last ten minutes.
