By Request, ‘O Church Arise’

We have a hymn request from SlimJim to start the day–O Church Arise, by Keith and Kryistyn Getty.

We try to start every blogging day with a hymn, and always welcome hymn requests.

By Request, ‘I Lift My Eyes’

Requested by Susan, this is Psalm 121–“I will lift up mine eyes unto the hills, from whence cometh my help,” in the old King James Version–set to music by Keith and Kristyn Getty, sung by Kristyn. Background sets by God the Father.

By Request, ‘How Suddenly a Baby Cries’

We have this hymn entered into our Second Annual Christmas Carol Contest by Thewhiterabbit–How Suddenly a Baby Cries, by Keith and Kristyn Getty. The melody is a traditional Irish tune; the lyrics by Kristyn.

If you haven’t yet entered a carol into the contest–well, come on!

Bonus Video, ‘In Christ Alone’

In Christ Alone is on a lot of readers’ lists of favorite hymns; and I’m posting it here because I’ve almost used up the first list of Your Favorite Hymns and I want to invite all readers to come up with another. Don’t be afraid to suggest more than one hymn. It’s not like we’ll ever run out of them.

I know, I know–with anything like this, the pattern always is: a few people act and a lot of people watch. I’d like to see more readers participating, but if I knew how to draw you in, I’d probably be rich and arrogant. So all I can do is hold out the invitation.

‘In Christ Alone’

This is on a lot of readers’ lists of favorite hymns–In Christ Alone, by Keith and Kristyn Getty. Your Favorite Hymns continues: please feel free to add to the list.

‘In Christ Alone’

We haven’t received any hymn requests lately, so I fall back on some of our favorites, like this one–In Christ Alone, by Keith and Kristyn Getty.

It’s easy to make a hymn request. Just like a comment anywhere.

By Request, ‘May the Peoples Praise You’

This is another worship song by Keith and Kristyn Getty, requested by Susan–May the Peoples Praise You.

I’ve been recycling a lot of my favorite hymns lately, so readers’ hymn requests are much appreciated: they bring in hymns I haven’t heard before. So if you have a hymn request, the ol’ hymn shop’s always open.

By Request, ‘O Church Arise’

I was hoping for some hymn requests, and we have this one from Susan: O Church Arise, by Keith and Kristyn Getty with an assist from Chris Tomlin. Inspired by Isaiah Chapter 60, “Arise, shine, for thy light has come.”

By Request, ‘I Will Wait for You’

(I wonder how many people have actually been driven mad by having to work with computers. The other computer has now gone haywire, so I’m back to this one. Lord, give me strength.)

Requested by Susan, I Will Wait for You, an adaptation of Psalm 130 (“Out of the depths I cry to you, O Lord”)  by Keith and Kristyn Getty

‘Christ Our Hope in Life and Death’

Looking for new hymns to post this morning, I found this–Christ Our Hope in Life and Death, by Keith and Kristyn Getty, with Matt Papa. Background sets by God the Father.
