By Request, ‘What a Friend’

We have this requested by SlimJim, what a Friend by Matt Maher…

I wonder what people from 200 years ago, would think if they saw thousands of cars whizzing up and down the freeway at speeds that never could have been imagined, back then.

‘Personent Hodie’ (‘On This Day Earth Shall Ring’)

Yes, all right, it’s a Christmas hymn–tell me there’s a bad time for that.

First sung in 1582, Personent Hodie–sung here by the choir and congregation at First Presbyterian Church in Beaver Falls, Pennsylvania.

Bonus Hymn By Request, ‘Through It All’

Here’s one suggested by Erlene–Through It All, by Jentezen Franklin, singing and playing the saxophone (but not at the same time!). My computer conked out halfway through putting up this post, but I plugged it in and no harm seems to have been done.

by Request, ‘Give Me Your Eyes’

What if we could see each other as Jesus sees us? That’s what this hymn is about.

Requested by SlimJim–Give Me Your Eyes, by Brandon Heath.

By Request, ‘Leaning on the Everlasting Arms’

I love this hymn and I’m always glad when someone requests it. Today it’s been requested by Erlene–Leaning on the Everlasting Arms, sung by Alan Jackson.

Out here in Joisey, its grey and drizzly; but the hymn shop is open for business.

By Request, ‘Come Behold the Wondrous Mystery’

Requested by Susan: Matt Boswell and the Boyce College Choir perform Come Behold the Wondrous Mystery.

The hymn shop is open!

‘The Lord Bless You and Keep You’

Bobby Goulder used I don’t know how much technology to transform himself into a nine-man choir and sing The Lord Bless You and Keep You. I think you’ll agree the result glorifies God!

By Request, ‘Spirit Wind’

We have another hymn request this morning, this one from SlimJim–Spirit Wind, by Casting Crowns.

Comparing Ezekiel in the valley of the dry bones to a preacher in a dried-out church today–well, that’s something to think about, isn’t it?

By Request, ‘The Deck of Cards’

I’d never heard of this one, but when my wife saw the hymn request, she exclaimed “Oh, boy, The Deck of Cards! I haven’t heard this in ages!”

Requested by Ina, here’s Tex Ritter with The Deck of Cards. 

By Request, ‘The Old Country Church’

Well, I don’t know what my “gender needs” are, but I do know a good old-fashioned hymn when I hear it. I also know my brain needs a rinse after that last post.

So we have a hymn requested by Erlene, The Old Country Church by the Gaither Vocal Group. Actually it contains bits of several classic hymns–just the kind you’d sing in an old country church.
