By Request, ‘The Church’s One Foundation’

Requested by ElderMike: The Church’s One Foundation, sung by the choir and the congregation at Grace Community Church in Sun Valley, California.

I’m pretty sure I got the melody wrong… but you don’t know what you’re going to hear until you start the video.

‘Joyful, Joyful, We Adore Thee’

Holy cow, am I tired! Finished another chapter set of Ozias, Prince in Peril, and I’ve still got to write a piece for Newswithviews.

I heard this hymn played by church bells as I wrote, so let’s have it here–Joyful, Joyful, We Adore Thee, music by Beethoven, sung by the choir and congregation at Grace Community Church in Sun Valley, California.

It’s okay if you want to play it loud.

‘Holy, Holy, Holy’

I’ve got to go buy groceries, and I’ve got blog posts and a book chapter to write, plus editing–but first–!

This hymn came barreling into my head from I don’t know where: and I felt very strongly that I ought to post it then and there. Holy, Holy, Holy, sung by the congregation of Grace Community Church in Sun Valley, California.

‘All Hail the Power of Jesus’ Name’ (the Other Melody)

This is the way we sang it in my church, the old Dutch Reformed. All Hail the Power of Jesus’ Name goes with several different melodies–I’m sure I haven’t heard them all.

Performed here by choir and congregation at Grace Community Church in Sun Valley, California.

‘Rejoice, Ye Pure in Heart’

This is an old Sunday school favorite, and the first hymn to pop into my head today–Rejoice, Ye Pure in Heart, sung by choir and congregation at Grace Community Church in Sun Valley, California. Not much video, but at least you get the lyrics.

‘Rejoice, Ye Pure in Heart’

I think it’s been a while since I posted this hymn–a good old-fashioned hymn, Rejoice, Ye Pure in Heart, sung here by the congregation at Grace Community Church in Sun Valley, California. This hymn was one of my favorites when I was a boy.

By Request, ‘Jesus, Thy Blood and Righteousness’

Requested by SlimJim: this hymn, Jesus, Thy Blood and Righteousness, sums up the Gospel in four verse: we are saved from our sins by Christ’s blood and righteousness. What more need we to know?

Sung by the congregation at Grace Community Church in Sun Valley, California.

‘Rejoice, Ye Pure in Heart’

It’s been a long time since I’ve heard this hymn–Rejoice, Ye Pure in Heart. We gave up the thin Sunday school hymn books for the thicker, heavier church hymnal: this was one of the hymns found in both books.

Sung by the congregation at Grace Community Church, Sun Valley, California.

By Request, ‘All Glory, Laud, and Honor’

(Okay, we’ve got this computer working again–kind of, sort of–and let’s pray it’ll keep working.)

Finally I know the name of this hymn! Requested by Joshua, All Glory, Laud, and Honor, sung by the congregation at Grace Community Church. Does anybody know if this is John MacArthur’s church?

‘Christ Shall Have Dominion’

The first time I ever posted this hymn, someone out there objected: he didn’t want Christ to have dominion.

But we have no king but Jesus Christ.

Sung by the congregation at Grace Community Church, San Antonio, Texas: Christ Shall Have Dominion.
