‘In the Sweet By and By’

I was hoping to get some hymn requests this morning–oh, well. Maybe this will get the readers in the mood–In the Sweet By and By, sung by the kids at Fountainview Academy. If you’re really motivated, you can try to figure out how they avoided tipping over the raft.

‘In the Sweet By and By’ (with Raft)

Well, they certainly come up with some unusual settings for their hymns! A great big raft out on Seton Lake, for instance. I’m sure I neverd would’ve thought of it.

‘In the Sweet By and By’

This was the first hymn that popped into my head today, so here it is–In the Sweet By and By, sung by the Mennonite Singers. Background sets by God the Father.

Encore, ‘In the Sweet By and By’

This hymn has been in my mind all morning, and I take that as a sign I ought to post it.

There are many lovely versions of it, but I like this one by our friends and colleagues, Joshua & Jeremy Swanson–In the Sweet By and By. Make sure you press the CC button at the bottom of the screen for lyrics: we haven’t yet found a way to persuade these guys to sing.

By Request, ‘In the Sweet By and By’

Requested by Joshua: In the Sweet By and By, sung by Simon Khorolskiy. We didn’t know he could sing American country music style! Thank you, Joshua.

By Request, ‘In the Sweet By and By’

Here’s a hymn request from Erlene–In the Sweet By and By. I opted for this rendition by Joshua & Jeremy Swanson>>> because they’re our friends, we love them, and they do make beautiful music and we should encourage them.

I don’t know about you, but if I had to cover the nooze without posting any hymns, I don’t think I could do this job.

Bonus Hymn, ‘In the Sweet By and By’

Requested by Joshua, Bird Youmans singing In the Sweet By and By. He is not actually a set of identical triplets–it’s all technological razzle-dazzle.

And oh, my! I used to know places like this… I’m sure they really existed…

Sanity Break: ‘In the Sweet By and By’

I don’t know about you, but I need a sanity break. I need a hymn–and this one has moved me to tears. This is the one I wanted.

In the Sweet By and By, performed by our own dear friends and colleagues, Joshua and Jeremy Swanson–yes, this is the one I wanted.  I pray it works for you, too.

‘In the Sweet By and By’

Who doesn’t love this hymn? In the Sweet By and By, sung here by the Mennonite Singers, is a 19th century classic. It sometimes seems strange that a century that generated such evils as communism and Darwinism (just to name two) was also remarkable for the sweetness of its hymns.

By Request, ‘In the Sweet By and By’

Requested by Erlene, a beloved old hymn, In the Sweet By and By–and I chose this instrumental version by our friends and colleagues, Joshua and Jeremy. It’s really quite beautiful, what they’ve done with it.
