I’d never heard this beautiful hymn before, until just now, and I decided I liked it way too much to hold it off till tomorrow. I’m not going to run out of hymns to post, am I?
Hold Fast Till I Come, sung by the students at Fountainview Academy, against a backdrop of God’s handiwork–we can’t ask for more.
Here’s a spiritual for you, by the Original Carter Family–There’s No Hiding Place Down Here. This is plain, this is simple; this is raw. But that’s how God’s Word is, sometimes.
Requested by Erlene, The Way, sung by Carroll Roberson.
The hymn shop is always open, open to all. Anyone can request a hymn. Just leave a comment anywhere on the blog, and we’ll do the rest.
Enough of the nooze already! This hymn’s been in my mind all day, and to me that means I ought to post it. In the Sweet By and By–and who better to play it for us than our own esteemed colleagues, the Swanson Brothers, Joshua and Jeremy?
Kick back and let this gentle hymn wash over you… Ah! That’s good!
Businessman Horatio Spafford wrote this hymn after losing most of his wealth, his son in the Chicago Fire, and his four daughters in a shipwreck: It Is Well with My Soul (1876), sung by Acapeldridge (in four-part harmony with himself).
Joshua, I am so glad I put off this hymn request of yours until after all the trouble with the stolen credit card! It has done me good: thank you.
Requested by Joshua, Redeemed! How I Love to Proclaim It, a Fanny Crosby classic, sung by the Martin Family, with glorious photography of God’s handiwork by Vickie Barnes.
Requested by Erlene, a classic Fanny Crosby hymn from 1869, Jesus, Keep Me Near the Cross. Sung by the Smucker Family. Background sets by God the Father.
This is one of my favorite hymns–To God Be the Glory, by Fanny Crosby (1875)–but I don’t think I’ve posted this rendition of it before, by the students at Fountainview Academy. Praise the Lord, the God of our salvation.
Phoebe asked for this hymn, but couldn’t come up with the title. But seek and ye shall find–Keep Your Eyes on the Prize and Hold On, sung by the Milwaukee Children’s Choir. Inspired by Acts 16:16-40, in which God delivered Paul and Silas out of prison in Philippi–and converting the jailer to faith in Jesus Christ.
There’s a haunting quality to this old hymn, don’t you think? Down to the River to Pray, sung by Alison Krauss.
