By Request, ‘Jesus Christ Is Risen Today’

Requested by Phoebe, Jesus Christ is Risen Today, sung by the Kings College Choir, Cambridge.

This Easter hymn brings a tear to my eye. It seems to me that in it I can hear all my loved ones who have gone before–which is most of them–singing this hymn in a heavenly choir. What is that lump in my throat?

It’s Jesus, wanting us to know He is risen.

By Request, ‘A Great and Mighty Wonder’

I’ve heard church bells playing this hymn, but I never knew what it was called until today, when TheWhiteRabbit requested it: A Great and Mighty Wonder, sung by the Kings College Choir.

By Request, ‘Infant Holy, Infant Lowly’

Requested by Phoebe–sorry, couldn’t find one with both lyrics and a nice sound–Infant Holy, Infant Lowly is originally a Polish Christmas hymn. Sung here by the choir at King’s College, Cambridge.

By Request, ‘The First Noel’

Phoebe requested this, The First Noel, so I picked this rendition by the King’s College Choir, at Cambridge.

As for the carol contest, the leading carol has 44 views; that was 12 days ago, and no one’s come close since.

Only four days left till Christmas!

By Request, ‘Good Christian Men Rejoice’

Requested by TheWhiteRabbit for his birthday yesterday evening, but held over till this morning to give it a fair shake in the carol contest–Good Christian Men Rejoice, by the Kings College Choir at Cambridge.

‘Once in Royal David’s City’

No one has asked for this yet, but here it is–Once in Royal David’s City, by the Kings College Choir at Cambridge. Ahhhh….!

By Request, ‘Hark the Herald Angels Sing’

Phoebe requested Hark the Herald Angels Sing, so here it is–from the Kings College Choir, at Cambridge.

The Christmas Carol Contest continues! So far the leading carol got 24 views the day it was posted. Remember, you can enter as often as you like. It’s part of our celebration of our Savior’s birth.

By Request, ‘O Holy Night’

Requested by Erlene–O Holy Night, sung by the Kings College Choir. There are many versions of this hymn available; this is one of my favorites.

O Lord! May this Christmas of 2019 do its work powerfully and well! In Jesus’ name, Amen.

By Request, ‘When I Survey the Wondrous Cross’

Requested by Joshua, When I Survey the Wondrous Cross, sung by the King’s College Choir, Cambridge.

They sound this hymn often on the bells, across the street at St. Francis’ Cathedral–and now I know what hymn it is. Thanks, Joshua.

‘Jesus Christ is Risen Today’

I couldn’t resist the beauty: Jesus Christ is Risen Today, by the King’s College Choir at Cambridge. This is one of those hymns that’s the very essence of Easter. I think we’ll want to use it again sometime soon.

Any Easter hymn requests out there?
