By Request, ‘Leaning on the Everlasting Arms’

Requested by Erlene: here’s a rousing rendition of a beloved old hymn, Leaning on the Everlasting Arms, by the choir and congregation of the Church of God. Turn up the volume and sing along–make a joyful noise unto the Lord.


‘Christ for the World We Sing’

This hymn has been on my mind lately, so I thought I’d better post it–Christ for the World We Sing, here performed by the Sanctuary Choir at First United Methodist Downtown, in Houston, Texas.

Hey out there–if you’ve got a favorite hymn you’d like to share, there’s no time like the present to make a hymn request. Just leave a comment anywhere and we’ll do the rest.


‘This Is My Father’s World’

I love this old hymn, This Is My Father’s World–especially these lines: “And though the wrong seem oft so strong, God is the ruler yet.” Amen!

Performed by the kids at Fountainview Academy, British Columbia.


‘Christ Shall Have Dominion’

Inspired by Psalm 72, performed by three friends at home, Christ Shall Have Dominion.

And you’d better pray it’s Christ that has it: because He only has the right to it. I remember the first time I posted this hymn: someone objected to the whole idea. To this day I wonder whom he would prefer to have dominion. But it doesn’t bear thinking of.


‘The Church in the Wildwood’ (Ernie Ford)

I wonder how many people today even know what a little community church looks like. Well, we’ve got pictures.

Sung by Tennessee Ernie Ford, back when, The Church in the Wildwood is a sweet old-fashioned hymn.

All earthly things change and pass away; but God’s Word will not pass away.


By Request, ‘I Know Whom I Have Believed’

And we have a hymn request from Erlene–I Know Whom I Have Believed, sung by Marshall Hall, with lyrics inspired by the Scriptures: 2 Timothy 1:2, to be exact. You could look it up!


‘Rock of Ages’

I always think of this as the 19th century hymn; but actually it was written in 1763 by Augustus Toplady: Rock of Ages, performed here by the Antrim Mennonite Choir.

If you’re new here, and you have a favorite hymn you’d like to share, just let us know and we’ll do the rest.


Bonus Hymn, ‘To Be a Pilgrim’

We’re about to go out doctoring, then I’ll have to buy the week’s groceries, and anyway there’s hardly anybody here today… and I felt a need for this hymn: To Be a Pilgrim, by John Bunyan. Performed with, shall we say, conviction by Maddy Prior and the Carnival Band.

I have no idea when I’ll be back.


‘Hyfrydol’–from Hong Kong

I love this hymn, and though I don’t speak Welsh, Hyfrydol speaks to me.

Performed by the Hong Kong Welsh Male Voice Choir at St. John’s Cathedral, Hong Kong.

How often do you get to go to Hong Kong to hear a hymn from Wales?


By Request, ‘Gloria in Excelsis Deo’

Here’s another blessing a lot of us could use today–a glorious, beautiful hymn, Gloria in Excelsis Deo, performed by the Libera Boys Choir with Fiona Pears, Robert Prizeman, Ian Tilley, and the City of Prague Philharmonic Orchestra.

Requested by Joshua–and thanks, Joshua, for that!
