There’s something mightily encouraging about a whole church hall-full of people lustily singing a classic Fanny Crosby hymn: it must make the wicked squirm! Choir and congregation at the Temple Baptist Church in Powell, Tennessee, belting out He Hideth My Soul–turn it up so that they can hear it Down Below.
(I’m not really late. I just got my bike ride in before it got too hot.)
I found myself whistling this hymn last night, shortly before bedtime, just after our Father Brown episode; so it struck me as a good idea to post it this morning: He Hideth My Soul, by Fanny Crosby (1890), sung by the Antrim Mennonite Choir. I’ve learned to like a lot of the new stuff, but they’ll never do better than Fanny Crosby.
I’d never heard this one, until I took to posting hymns and a reader requested it. Now it’s one of my favorites: He Hideth My Soul, by Fanny Crosby, sung by the Antrim Mennonite Choir.
If you put all the hymns written by Fanny Crosby, Isaac Watts, and Charles Wesley into one hymnal… what else would you need?
This Fanny Crosby hymn from 1890 has been on my lips a lot, these past few days. Here it is, performed by Nathan and Lyle, with family and friends, in Denton County, Texas. Thank you, Fanny, for those 8,000 hymns you wrote!
No one has requested a hymn today, so I thought I’d go with Nathan and Lyle, family and friends, singing He Hideth My Soul–one of the many classic hymns written by Fanny Crosby.
How many? Well, if she’d written a new one every day, without missing a day, it would have taken her 20 years to write all the hymns she published. One stands in awe.
This is just one of the eight or nine thousand hymns Fanny Crosby wrote: He Hideth My Soul, sung here by Nathan and Lyle with family and friends, in Denton County, Texas. Relax and let it sing to you.
Sorry, running a little bit late today. Yesterday my sinuses made my teeth ache, but a lot of prayers, a good night’s sleep, and Sambucol have me nearly out6 of the woods today.
This is one of the most beautiful hymns I know, He Hideth My Soul, by Fanny Crosby back in 1890, sung here by the Antrim Mennonite Choir.
This morning it’s Fanny Crosby and one of her 8,000 hymns (give or take a few hundred)–He Hideth My Soul. Music by the Antrim Mennonite Choir. Backgrounds by the hand of the Lord Our God.
Written by Fanny Crosby in 1890, performed by Nathan and Lyle with family and friends in Denton County, Texas–He Hideth My Soul. This is the hymn I woke up with this morning. I hope it stirs you as it stirs me. Note the little boy playing with his horsie: makes you feel right at home, doesn’t it?
(I’m early today because I have to go to the eye doctor.)
Fanny Crosby wrote this hymn in 1890, He Hideth My Soul. I love this rendition by Nathan and Lyle, family and friends, in Denton County, Texas. I can’t quite make out what the little boy is trying to do, but everybody else is busy making a joyful noise unto the Lord.
