Here’s another one of those hymns I’m afraid I post too often–Jesus Saves, as sung at Synod 2012 in the Hudson River valley.
I can’t help it. We are taking a hammering this year. One more bill like this week’s vet bill… can’t even bear to think of it.
And please, we need your prayers for Robbie. She’s supposed to be pretty much okay, the doctor said so. But it doesn’t look that way.
(The hernia operation, the refrigerator, the computer, the car… next it’ll be my head falls off or something…)
We have fallen into one of those bad patches that life throws at you because it can: car in the shop, undergoing repairs that’ll cost us but good, cat needing another trip to the vet, and now the refrigerator suddenly giving up the ghost in the middle of a heat wave.
Please include us in your prayers!
Hymn today, Jesus Saves–sung at Synod 2012 of the United Reformed Church. That’s the Hudson River in the background.
One of my favorite hymns, Jesus Saves (also known as We Have Heard the Joyful Sound), as played by Joshua and Jeremy Swanson, our friends and esteemed colleagues. Guys, it’s okay to sing it while you play it.
I love this hymn! And now it’ll be in my head all day, but I don’t mind: Jesus Saves, a glorious 19th-century hymn played by our favorite 21st century minstrels, Joshua and Jeremy Swanson. (Now if we could just get them to sing…)
Well, if we ever needed saving, we need it now! It used to be the ungodly merely wished to kill us off, applying violence against the Church. Nowadays they want to corrupt us to death.
Sing the hymns louder. It may be God will hear us.
No requests received this morning, so I’m on my own and this is the hymn I want to hear today–Jesus Saves, sung at Reformed Synod 2012, held at Nyack, New York, on the mighty Hudson River. I don’t know a hymn more beautiful than this.

I’m worn out from trying to straighten out the mess with readers’ comments–but I think we’re almost there. Could I take a day off from it?
Meanwhile, here’s one of my favorite hymns–Jesus Saves (We Have Heard the Joyful Sound), as sung at Synod 2012 of the United Reformed Church at Nyack College, New York. That’s the Hudson River in the picture: God’s handiwork.
The day’s winding down, I’m sad, and I feel a need for this hymn. May it minister to you, too.
Jesus Saves, sung at Synod 2012 of the United Reformed Church in North America–and that’s the Hudson River in the background. God’s handiwork. Been there, loved it. Viewed from Nyack, New York.
I asked, in my troubled state of mind, “Where’s the way out of this? How in the world do we get out of this?”
Well, thank you, Phoebe, you found just the hymn I wanted–Jesus Saves. The Lord is our defense. He will save us. He will never fail us.
That’s the mighty Hudson River in the background–a glorious work of the Father’s hand.
