‘Leaning on the Everlasting Arms’

No hymn requests from readers yet, so I’ll just post one of my favorites–Leaning on the Everlasting Arms, by the Gordon Quartet. No studio, no microphines, just somebody’s living room–how do they do it? No musical instruments, either: just their voices.

Another very, very slow day so far. No hymn requests, so I’m on my own.

I’ve always loved this video–Leaning on the Everlasting Arms, by the Gordon Quartet. No microphones, no musical instruments, no studio, nothing but their voices.

And that’s all they need.

By Request, ‘Leaning on the Everlasting Arms’

We have this as a hymn request from Phoebe, Leaning on the Everlasting Arms–and this a capella rendition by the Gordon Quartet is my favorite. How they can manage this in an ordinary living room, without any studio equipment, is a source of wonder. I guess they’re leaning on those arms, too!

No studio: just somebody’s living room. No electronics. Nothing special in the way of acoustics. No instrumental back-up, not even a piano. But oh! how beautifully this hymn is sung!

Leaning on the Everlasting Arms, sung by the Gordon Quartet–is this a blessing, or what?

‘Leaning on the Everylasting Arms’

I’m happy someone asked for this–Leaning on the Everlasting Arms. This is the Gordon Quartet–no musical instruments but their own voices, just sitting in a living room. Remarkable.

The first time I ever heard this hymn was in Night of the Hunter, sung by Lillian Gish and Robert Mitchum.

‘Leaning on the Everlasting Arms’

This is surely a time for leaning on the everlasting arms. Our country is in the most danger it’s been in since World War II–and all of it home-grown. That’s not even counting the pestilence that came out of Red China.

Erlene happened to mention this hymn in one of her comments today, and I thought I’d post it before running out the door to take Robbie to the vet.

Sit back and enjoy this gorgeous rendition, by the Gordon Quartet, of this classic hymn, Leaning on the Everlasting Arms.

You wouldn’t think four people sitting in a room without any musical instruments could do much music-making–but listen to this.
