Bonus Hymn, ‘He Leadeth Me’

This hymn has been calling to me all morning, and to my mind, that means I ought to post it. Consider it a sanity break–He Leadeth Me (1862), sung by the Mennonite Hour Men’s Quartet.


‘Savior Like a Shepherd Lead Us’

I couldn’t find Lyle with his guitar in this video, but there’s Nathan with the autoharp, plus family and friends, with Savior Like a Shepherd Lead Us–by Dorothy Thrupp, in 1836.


By Request, ‘Pass Me Not, O Gentle Savior’

Requested by Joshua–Pass Me Not, O Gentle Savior, sung by Fernando Ortega.

What can we say, but “Amen”? We’re needing you today, O Lord.


‘Onward, Christian Soldiers’ …(and We’re Sick)

Some churches won’t play this hymn anymore, so we’ll play it here–Onward, Christian Soldiers, performed by the students at Fountainview Academy.

And last night some kind of affliction hit my wife like a ton of bricks, no sleep for either of us all night long, so please pray for Patty, that this illness leaves her as swiftly as it came: and for me, that I can get through the day. Now is when we wish our cats knew how to answer phones and cook dinner.

(She sounds terrible this morning, but I think if I can get her back to sleep, that will help a lot.)


‘Come, Thou Long Expected Jesus’

I don’t know how many different sets of lyrics there are for “Hyfrydol.” It seems each denomination has its own. Here we have it as Come, Thou Long Expected Jesus, by Charles Wesley: sung by Fernando Ortega.


By Request, ‘Rock of Ages’

Rock of Ages, by Rev. A.M. Toplady, was first published in 1775 and has remained popular ever since–but you’ve never heard it sung like this before. Requested by Joshua: Rock of Ages, sung a capella by GLAD.


‘This Is My Father’s World’

This was a Sunday school favorite of mine, and still is–This Is My Father’s World. It carries an important message: “This is my Father’s world, and let me ne’er forget that though the wrong seems oft so strong, God is the ruler yet.”

Performed by Central Study Hour Worship.


By Request, ‘Blessed Are Those Who’ve Never Seen’

Thomas believed in Jesus because he saw the wounds in His hands and feet and side; but Jesus said, as the hymn tells us, “Blessed are those who have not seen, and believe.”

Requested by Erlene, Blessed Are Those Who’ve Never Seen, by Carroll Roberson.


‘He Who Would Valiant Be’

I have no idea whether the hymn I selected will appear here. Everything on this computer is chaos today.

What I wanted–and I don’t know if that’s what you’re seeing–was He Who Would Valiant Be, accompanied by video of a scenic, soothing little ride on the North Yorkshire Moors Railway.

Pray for my head not to explode today.


Sanity Break, ‘The Love of God’

Enough already with the politics! Happily, a hymn request popped up. Let’s go there instead.

Requested by Erlene, The Love of God, by the Gaither Vocal Band. Wow! Can these guys sing, or what? Make a joyful noise unto the Lord!
