Play It Again, Lee (‘He Hideth My Soul’)

I’ve just finished writing my Newswithviews column for the week. The day’s nooze has left a bad taste in my mouth. But this hymn has been in my mind all day–so I’m going to post it again.

He Hideth My Soul, by Fanny Crosby, sung by the Antrim Mennonite Choir–and it’s as fresh and uplifting as it was when it first came out in 1890. An antidote to nooze!

‘He Hideth My Soul’

This was the first hymn that popped into my head last night, when I was looking for a hymn to start this morning. Well, why not? You can’t beat a hymn by Fanny Crosby, sung by the kids from Fountainview Academy. This video was filmed during their visit to Hawaii.

‘He Hideth My Soul’

Let’s start the day with a classic Fanny Crosby hymn from 1890–He Hideth My Soul, sung by Nathan and Lyle with family and friends.

Y’know, we do take hymn requests, and we’re happy to do it: but only a few of you ever ask. Really, it’s the easiest thing in the world–just make your hymn request in a comment anywhere on the blog, and we’ll do the rest.

You can’t beat this combination–a beach in Hawaii, a classic hymn by Fanny Crosby, and students from Fountainview Academy to perform it: He Hideth My Soul.

As of today, I need a few dozen hymns to fill the cart with Your Favorite Hymns. So step right up, don’t be shy!

So I thought, “One more try, what can it hurt?>” And, behold–we have this morning’s hymn. I have no idea why it refused to post the first time.

Well, we are blessed with this–a Fanny Crosby hymn, He Hideth My Soul, performed by the kids from Fountainview Academy on a beach in Hawaii. See how the waves have carved and shaped the lava rock: our God is a very patient sculptor.

You can’t go wrong with a hymn by Fanny Crosby, and she wrote eight or nine thousand of them–including this one, He Hideth My Soul. Performed by Nathan and Lyle, with family and friends, in Denton County, Texas.

This is one of eight or nine thousand hymns Fanny Crosby wrote: He Hideth My Soul, published in 1890, sung here by the Antrim Mennonite Choir.

Encore, ‘He Hideth My Soul’

Before we go wading into nooze and politics (don’t forget your hazmat suit), we have another request for He Hideth My Soul, this one from Kenneth. Ken, the hymn shop’s open all the time! Sung here by Guy Penrod.

Let’s start the day with a classic hymn by Fanny Crosby, He Hideth My Soul, performed by Nathan and Lyle with family and friends, in Denton County, Texas. If you don’t have a studio, a living room will do!

‘He Hideth My Soul’

No one wrote more hymns than Fanny Crosby–more than 8,000 hymns. This is one of them: He Hideth My Soul, from 1890, sung here by the Antrim Mennonite Choir. Background sets by God the Father, maker of heaven and earth.
