‘Jesus Keep Me Near the Cross’

We have brothers and sisters in Christ whose names we’ll never know, whom we’ll never meet. But thanks to modern communications, at least we can see and hear them.

Jesus Keep Me Near the Cross–sung by the Voice of Eden, brought to us from India.


By Request, ‘Faith of Our Fathers’

Phoebe requested Faith of Our Fathers–the real one, with “in spite of dungeon, fire and sword.” I think of the souls waiting below the altar in Revelation 5: 9-11. God will avenge His saints.

This plainsong version is presented by Brother Alphonsus.


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.


Special Encore, ‘Guide Us, O Thou Great Jehovah’

After bumming myself out on the nooze, and on comments by persons whose worldly wisdom moves them to surrender to the wicked and ungodly–and a thunder and hail storm, on top of it–this hymn marched into my mind and wouldn’t let up: and I had to have it.

Guide Us, O Thou Great Jehovah (Cwm Rhondda in Welsh), sung by choir and congregation at the Tabernacle Welsh Baptist Church–sing it loud, sing it loud!

For God is nigh.


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.”


‘Victory in Jesus’

We like to start each blogging day with a hymn, so we’ll have done at least one thing right that day. Today’s hymn: Victory in Jesus, sung by Burl Ives.


Bonus Hymn, ‘To God Be the Glory’

The computer happens to be working at the moment. Quick! Hurry! Post something!

Can’t do better than this: To God Be the Glory, sung by the kids at Fountainview Academy. I don’t know where, exactly, they went to do this–but how about those brilliant wildflowers? God’s stuff–it’s always good.


‘The Son of God Goes Forth to War’

The first time He came here was to shed His blood and be slain in atonement for our sins. The powerful, the wise, and the noble nailed Him to the cross. But when He comes again, it will be to judge the quick and the dead; and there are those who are high and mighty now will be like raw eggs thrown against the wall.

The Son of God Goes Forth to War, presented by Joe Stout: lest we forget that there’s another book to come.


‘Holy, Holy, Holy’

This was the first hymn that popped into my head last night, so I’m going with it this morning: Holy, Holy, Holy! Lord God Almighty, sung by Neil Rondina. A staple in our churches since 1826.


By Request, ‘Joy to the World’

Christmas in July? Well, I don’t turn down hymn requests. Requested by Joshua, Joy to the World, performed by Jannik and David Doring, on pan-flute and guitar.

I admit I’m partial to Christmas music all year round.
