Two For Christmas

Is it too early for Christmas hymns? Nah–not around here it isn’t. Presenting Joshua and Jeremy Swanson, with Silent Night and Joy to the World. Here’s praying we all make it to Christmas and beyond.

‘Be Still, My Soul’

No hymn requests this morning, but here’s a treat: our friends and esteemed colleagues, Joshua and Jeremy–with Scott Swanson on the keyboard–give us Be Still, My Soul. Many of us know this melody as Finlandia, by Sibelius.

‘At Calvary’

Joshua and Jeremy have a new hymn for us–At Calvary, with guitar and banjo.

(We are so relieved just now, for Robbie’s sake! An upbeat hymn like this is just the ticket.)

‘Beneath the Cross of Jesus’

No hymn requests today, so I had to try to think of one–but as soon as I got into YouTube, I found this. Performed by our friends and colleagues, Joshua and Jeremy: Beneath the Cross of Jesus.

‘Take Time to Be Holy’

Here’s another hymn I hadn’t hear before–Take Time to be Holy, performed for us by our friends and colleagues, Joshua and Jeremy Swanson. Click “CC” for lyrics–we still haven’t persuaded these guys to sing for us.

‘Most Perfect is the Law of God’

Here’s a new one from Joshua and Jeremy Swanson: Most Perfect Is the Law of God… and we are back in Psalm 119. Click “CC” for the lyrics. If you know your Bible, you’ll find them quite familiar.

‘I Hear Thy Welcome Voice’

Here’s a hymn I’ve never heard before–I Hear Thy Welcome Voice, performed by Joshua and Jeremy. Keep ’em comin’, guys. We don’t have to worry about running out of hymns.

‘Faith of Our Fathers’

Would you believe it? Here’s another hymn we used to sing in high school, when we had Assembly. Go ahead, tell us how that harmed us!

Faith of Our Fathers (“living still, in spite of dungeon, fire, and sword”), performed for us by Joshua and Jeremy.

‘I Heard the Voice of Jesus Say’

Here’s another hymn I never heard before–I Heard the Voice of Jesus Say, performed here by Joshua and Jeremy. Haunting melody, isn’t it? I wonder how it would sound with Johnny Cash singing it. I wonder how it’d sound with Joshua and Jeremy singing it.

Joshua & Jeremy: ‘There Shall Be Showers of Blessings’

It’s always a pleasure to post a hymn by our dear friends and colleagues, Joshua and Jeremy. Maybe someday we can get them to sing. Anyway, here they have one for us today: There Shall Be Showers of Blessings.
