‘Revive Us Again’ (J & J)

Look at this: now I have to enter my own hymn contest.

Just kidding. But I do hope some of you will enter soon with hymn requests.

We all love Joshua and Jeremy, and I always post their videos when I see them. We haven’t heard Revive Us Again lately, so it’s a nice surprise to hear it from our friends and colleagues, J&J.

Special Treat: ‘On Christ the Solid Rock I Stand’

Maybe it’s the weather. I feel like I’m stuck in neutral.

All right, enough! Here’s a special treat–our friends and esteemed colleagues, Joshua & Jeremy Swanson, perform On Christ the Solid Rock I Stand. I’d never heard this hymn before. Click “CC” for the lyrics.

Joshua & Jeremy: ‘Jesus Keep Me Near the Cross’

We have a brand-new hymn video from our friends and colleagues, Joshua and Jeremy–Jesus Keep Me Near the Cross. You can’t get these guys to sing (goodness knows, I’ve tried), so be sure to click “CC” at the bottom of the picture for the lyrics.

Special Treat: ‘Christ the Lord Is Risen Today’ (Joshua & Jeremy)

It’s not all bad today! We’ve got a new hymn performed by our friends and esteemed colleagues, Joshua and Jeremy Swanson–Christ the Lord Is Risen Today.

Now, if we could just persuade them to sing, too… Don’t be bashful, guys–you have an audience that loves you.

Joshua & Jeremy: ‘Have You Been to Jesus?’

Here we have our own esteemed colleagues, Joshua and Jeremy, with an instrumental rendition of the classic hymn, Have You Been to Jesus? We also know it as Are You Washed in the Blood of the Lamb?

By Request, ‘I’ll Fly Away’

“Thewhiterabbit” asked for this hymn–and who better to play it for us than our own friends and colleagues, Joshua and Jeremy Swanson?

Sanity Break: ‘In the Sweet By and By’

I don’t know about you, but I need a sanity break. I need a hymn–and this one has moved me to tears. This is the one I wanted.

In the Sweet By and By, performed by our own dear friends and colleagues, Joshua and Jeremy Swanson–yes, this is the one I wanted.  I pray it works for you, too.

‘I’ll Fly Away’

When I saw this hymn on the list of your favorities, I remembered there’s a video of our own dear friends and colleagues, Joshua and Jeremy Swanson, performing it on their guitars–I’ll Fly Away, a good old-fashioned country hymn. We’re doubly thankful that the typhoon missed them last weekend.

Joshua & Jeremy, ‘Unclouded Day’

Just to let them know we’re thinking of them, and praying for them as a typhoon bears down on Japan, here’s a video by Joshua & Jeremy, Unclouded Day.

Please, Lord, let the storm clouds pass over our friends and depart without hurting them: in Jesus’ name, Amen.

‘You Are My Sunshine’ (Joshua & Jeremy)

Let’s see if I can sing this without starting to cry. “You are my sunshine, my only sunshine, you make me happy when skies are grey…” Nope. No can do.

When I was a very little boy with fantods in the night, my father would get up and pick me up, and sing this song to me. How well I remember that. “You’ll never know dear, how much I love you, please don’t take my sunshine away.” And he meant every word of it. That’s why it moves me so.

Anyway, here are our own Swanson brothers, Joshua and Jeremy, with their rendition of the songs. Nice work, guys! Got me all sappy. But that’s OK.
