‘O, Worship the King’

This was the first hymn I ever taught myself to play on the harmonica. We have Joshua and Jeremy playing it for us on their guitars–O, Worship the King.

Still trying to figure out a way to get these two to sing…

Happy Birthday, Joshua!

Things get so confusing around here! Joshua’s birthday almost came and went–good thing we had someone up in the crows’ next.

Can we get Joshua to sing for his birthday?

Nope, can’t do it. So we have an instrumental with brother Jeremy, To God Be the Glory

Well, Joshua is 21 years old today, and we thank him and Jeremy for all the wonderful hymns they play for us throughout the year. Happy birthday, Joshua!

Bonus Hymn: ‘To God Be the Glory’ (Joshua & Jeremy)

We don’t like to miss any videos by our friends and esteemed colleagues, Joshua and Jeremy. If we cheer them on enough, maybe they’ll sing the hymns they play.

To God Be the Glory–and d’you know what I think? I think God really likes it when two or three of us, without any fanfare, get together and praise Him with a hymn. Just as a part of daily life! I think He really loves that.

By Request, ‘When the Roll Is Called Up Yonder’

Our dear friend and sister, Erlene, isn’t feeling well this morning, so please join in prayer for her. Meanwhile, she thought she’d like to hear this hymn, When the Roll Is Called Up Yonder. We happen to have a guitar and banjo rendition of it by our friends and esteemed colleagues, Joshua & Jeremy Swanson.

Here’s your hymn, Erlene–from Japan, by way of New Jersey.

‘At the Cross (Alas, and Did My Savior Bleed)’

Our own friends and esteemed colleagues, Joshua and Jeremy, have a hymn for us–At the Cross (Alas, and Did My Savior Bleed). Maybe if we cheered them on a little more, they’d sing these for us.

Do my eyes deceive me, or has Jeremy grown taller than Joshua?

‘Just As I Am’

This is another hymn my mother and my aunts used to sing as they went about their housework. Here we have it by our dear friends and esteemed colleagues, Joshua and Jeremy–Just As I Am (Without One Plea). 

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.

‘How Firm a Foundation’

We already have several hymn requests this morning, and I’ll post them all during the course of the day. And help me out, people! I’ll need about 400 views today to climb out of the hole.

How Firm a Foundationby our dear friends and colleagues Joshua and Jeremy: click “CC” for the lyrics. Maybe someday we can get these guys to sing.

”Tis So Sweet to Trust in Jesus’ (Joshua and Jeremy)

I had a hard time copying this video, but it’s worth it–‘Tis So Sweet to Trust in Jesus, performed by our own friends and esteemed colleagues, Joshua and Jeremy Swanson. Don’t forget to click “CC” for the lyrics, if they don’t show up right away. One of these days we’ll get these guys to sing for us, too.

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.
