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.

By Request, ‘His Mercy is More’

Susan has been coming up with some wonderful new hymns for us lately, like this one: His Mercy Is More, by Keith and Kristyn Getty, performed here by Matt Papa and Matt Boswell. “Our sins they are many, His mercy is more.” They got that right!

By Request, ‘Forever Jesus’

Requested by Susan: a new worship song, Forever Jesus, written by Matt Papa and Stuart Townend, performed by them with Keith and Kristyn Getty. With background sets by God the Father.

‘In Christ Alone’ (New Video)

This hymn was knocking at my door all day. Here’s a new video by Keith and Kristyn Getty, with an assist from Alison Krauss. I keep thinking the waters are the Sea of Galilee. Well, they might be, at that.
