By Request, ‘Be Thou My Vision’

Requested by Joshua–and on his birthday, no less: how can I say No?–Be Thou My Vision, by GLAD.

This is one of my very favorite hymns–and do you guys know how old it is? It’s from the early 700’s! And still very popular today. What wouldn’t I give to hear it the way it sounded when it was first sung? I wonder what musical instruments they used. God bless those Irish monks who kept the lights on, all through the Dark Ages.

By Request, ‘Rock of Ages’

By Request, ‘We Gather Together’

Requested by Joshua, We Gather Together, sung a capella by GLAD.

For me this is the Thanksgiving hymn. We sang it in Sunday school. We even sang it in public school: it was before “educators” and “judges” figured out what harm it does children to believe in God. I put quotes around those words on purpose. Shame on us for letting them impose their will on us.

 

By Request, ‘God Is My Redeemer’

Requested by Joshua, God Is My Redeemer, by GLAD. Sung a capella with skill and discipline that awes me–all in God’s service and to His praise. I was in a choir once, but they just had me stand in the back row and move my lips.

By Request, ‘Crown Him With Many Crowns’

Requested by Joshua–here’s an a cappella rendition of Crown Him With Many Crowns, by GLAD.
