‘Am I a Soldier of the Cross’

The internet’s conking out on me again this morning, so I’d better hurry up and post this: a classic hymn by Isaac Watts, Am I a Soldier of the Cross. I couldn’t find the name of the performer.

‘I Sing the Mighty Power of God’

I just had to have this hymn, a good old Sunday school favorite–I Sing the Mighty Power of God by Isaac Watts: first sung in 1715 and sung here by the Mountain Anthems. Background sets by God the Father.

‘I Sing the Mighty Power of God’

I hope you don’t mind my resorting to one of my favorite hymns again this morning: I Sing the Mighty Power of God, written by Isaac Watts in 1715 and still fresh and glorious today. Sung a capella by The Mountain Anthems.

By Request, ‘O, God, Our Help in Ages Past’

Phoebe asked for this one–O, God, Our Help in Ages Past, a classic hymn by Isaac Watts, published in 1719 and still loved today. Sung here by the Sharon Mennonite Bible Singers.

Would you believe we used to sing this in assembly, at high school? But that was before “judges” decided that we couldn’t anymore.

‘Jesus Shall Reign’

A classic hymn by Isaac Watts, 18th century vintage–Jesus Shall Reign, sung by St. Michael’s Singers, backed up by mighty organ music.

‘I Sing the Mighty Power of God’

Isaac Watts wrote hymns in the 18th century that are still being widely sung today. This is one of his classics, a big favorite in the church that I grew up in–I Sing the Mighty Power of God. Sung by the congregation at Grace Community Church.

By Request, ‘At the Cross’

Requested by Erlene–At the Cross, sung by the congregation at The Church of God. This is a classic written by Isaac Watts, published in 1707… and still going strong!

By Request, ‘Joy to the World’

Requested by Phoebe: Joy to the World, performed by Celtic Woman with a great big orchestra to back them up. Words by Isaac Watts; music by–well, no one’s entirely sure. It might be a very old melody that had been kicking around for a few centuries. But now it’s permanently wedded to Watts’ lyrics.

And we’re off and running with our Christmas carol contest!
