By Request, ‘Woke Up This Morning With My Mind Stayed on Jesus’

Requested by Phoebe, Woke Up This Morning With My Mind Stayed on Jesus, sung by Perfect Praise.

With your mind stayed on Jesus is not a bad place for your mind to be.

By Request, ‘Jesu, Joy of Man’s Desiring’

I usually save this hymn for Christmas-time; but Erlene planted the suggestion in my head this morning, so here it is–Jesu, Joy of Men’s Desiring, by J.S. Bach, performed by the New London Symphony Orchestra.

I was whistling this to myself one day, on my way into the Y, when a passerby stopped and said, “That’s so beautiful! What’s it called?” So I told him. Surely among the most beautiful pieces of music ever written.

Hymn, ‘The Little Drummer Boy’

By reader request, here’s The Little Drummer Boy–complete with real, live drummer boy. Wow, can that kid sing!

Into this evil age, into this fallen world, comes Jesus Christ Our Lord.

Sing louder, Christians! For our redemption is at hand.
