By Request, ‘He Is Here’

My list of Your Favorite Hymns is just about exhausted, so please, everybody, feel free to load it up again.

For now, we have He Is Here, by the Gaither Vocal Band.

By Request, ‘Up from the Grave He Arose’

Erlene mentioned this hymn yesterday and I just couldn’t get it out of my mind. We usually save it for Easter-time, but really the message bears repeating all year long.

Up from the Grave He Arose, sung by Voices of Eden–a glorious gift from our family in India.

Bonus Video, ‘In Christ Alone’

In Christ Alone is on a lot of readers’ lists of favorite hymns; and I’m posting it here because I’ve almost used up the first list of Your Favorite Hymns and I want to invite all readers to come up with another. Don’t be afraid to suggest more than one hymn. It’s not like we’ll ever run out of them.

I know, I know–with anything like this, the pattern always is: a few people act and a lot of people watch. I’d like to see more readers participating, but if I knew how to draw you in, I’d probably be rich and arrogant. So all I can do is hold out the invitation.

‘Softly and Tenderly’

This is No. 50 from the list of Your Favorite Hymns, so it’s time to add another 50. What we usually get is just a few readers suggesting lots of hymns. How about a lot of readers suggesting lots of hymns? We won’t run out of them!

But for today–Softly and Tenderly, sung by the Altar of Praise Chorale.

‘Yesterday, Today,and Forever’

With this one I’ll have posted 50 of your favorite hymns (not counting special requests), and we’re coming near the end of the list–time to reload! If you’ve got some favorite hymns you’d like to see posted here, don’t be shy, just let us now.

For now: Yesterday, Today, and Forever, sung by the congregation at Faithful Word Baptist Church.

‘Will the Circle Be Unbroken’

People first heard this hymn in 1907–Will the Circle Be Unbroken, sung here by Randy Travis. It’s on the list of Your Favorite Hymns, so here it is… by popular demand.

If you have a favorite hymn, or half a dozen favorite hymns, you’d like to share, just let us know. It’s time to re-load the list.

‘When the Saints Go Marching In’

Your favorite Hymns continues with When the Saints Go Marching In, by Evensong. It seems strange not to have Louis Armstrong singing this, but I think you’ll like this simple rendition, too.

If you have a favorite hymn you’d like to add to the list, just leave a reply/comment anywhere on this uncrowded blog.

By Request, ‘Seek Ye First the Kingdom of God’

Let’s start off with a hymn requested by TheWhiteRabbit–Seek Ye First the Kingdom of God, by Ingrid DuMosch. Backed up with gorgeous photography of God’s handiwork.

By Request, ‘I Surrender All’

And a hymn request from Erlene has come in–I Surrender All, performed by Lifeway Worship. I’d never heard this one before. Well, we’re not going to run out of hymns, are we?

By Request, ‘Way Maker’

Our first hymn request of the day comes from SlimJim–Way Maker, a worship song by Michael W. Smith.

I don’t know if I’ll get around to doing any nooze today.
