‘Am I a Soldier of the Cross?’

This is a classic Isaac Watts hymn–Am I Soldier of the Cross?–set against a Scottish highland backdrop by singer Andy Kenway: the work of God’s hands, who sculpted the shape of the earth.


‘I Sing the Mighty Power of God’

This is one of my favorites, going way back to Sunday school: I Sing the Mighty Power of God, sung here by the Ball Brothers. Lyrics by Isaac Watts, in 1715. Set design and construction by God the Father, in eternity.


By Request, ‘Joy to the World’

Jeremy requested Joy to the World by A Capella, but I couldn’t find it. But I did stumble upon this guy “Acapeldridge,” who uses modern technology to–well, he sings in perfect harmony with himself. And it sounds great!

Lyrics by Isaac Watts, 1719–and still growing strong, 299 years later.


By Request, ‘Joy to the World’

Requested by Phoebe, Joy to the World, sung by the Libera boys’ choir. Words by Isaac Watts: published in 1719.

You might want to turn up the volume on this one.


‘Am I a Soldier of the Cross’

Music by Andy Kenway, words by Isaac Watts, the harsh beauty of the Scottish Highlands by God the Father: and we have Am I a Soldier of the Cross.

I’m at the doctor’s office (regularly scheduled checkup) as you listen to this hymn.

*Sigh* No I’m not. I fumbled this and it’s still Sunday.


‘I Sing the Mighty Power of God’

Isaac Watts wrote this classic in 1715, and it’s still going strong today: I Sing the Mighty Power of God. This is one of the hymns that immediately comes to mind when I remember the advice, “Sing louder!” Performed here by the Ball Brothers. Set design by God the Father, maker of heaven and earth.


‘Am I a Soldier of the Cross?’

It’s been a while since I posted this one: Andy Kenway singing Am I a Soldier of the Cross, by Isaac Watts. With the stark beauty of the Scottish countryside for background.

When the Lord calls, better listen.


‘I Sing the Mighty Power of God’

I love this hymn, always have: I Sing the Mighty Power of God, by Isaac Watts, 1715. It makes me think of my wife’s lamb casserole. A small thing, you might say: but a product of both love and diligence, which I find to be very beautiful things that move me to give thanks to their Ultimate Provider.


Encore: Jesus Shall Reign

I’m posting this yesterday for release today. Does that make any sense? Jesus Shall Reign, by Isaac Watts: “Blessings abound where’er He reigns.”


Encore: ‘Jesus Shall Reign Where’er the Sun’

Commenting upon the, er, “transgender preacher” two years ago, Laura requested this hymn–Jesus Shall Reign Where’er the Sun, written by Isaac Watts and published in 1719. Mr. Transgender can keep his Dylan and Beyonce.
