By Request, ‘Tell It to Jesus’

Thank you, Joshua, for requesting this hymn, Tell It to Jesus–first time I’ve heard it. I don’t know who’s singing it, other than they’re described as “a Mennonite group,” but whoever you are–well done!


By Request, ‘He’s Still God’

Requested by Erlene, He’s Still God, by Carroll Roberson.

I’m sometimes asked when I take requests and post hymns on this blog.

Check out the nooze. Do you really need to ask?


John Bunyan’s Hymn

I love this hymn and just have to post it now and then–To Be a Pilgrim, by John Bunyan, author of Pilgrim’s Progress. Performed by Maddy Prior and the Carnival Band. It’s the kind of hymn that adds some spark to your bark!

Also known as He Who Would Valiant Be.


‘Dear Lord and Father of Mankind’

Enjoy the photos of English cathedrals as you listen to the hymn, Dear Lord and Father of Mankind, sung by the Choir of the Abbey School in Tewksbury.

If you’re new here, we take hymn requests. If you have a favorite hymn you’d like to share, just leave a comment anywhere on the blog and we’ll do the rest.


‘He Hideth My Soul’

No one wrote more hymns than Fanny Crosby–more than 8,000 hymns. This is one of them: He Hideth My Soul, from 1890, sung here by the Antrim Mennonite Choir. Background sets by God the Father, maker of heaven and earth.


By Request, ‘Sing the Wondrous Love of Jesus’

Requested by Joshua, Sing the Wondrous Love of Jesus, sung by the FBC Paden Choir. This hymn, written by Eliza Hewitt in 1898, is also known as When We All Get to Heaven. We love those classic 19th-century hymns!


By Request, ‘Ten Thousand Reasons’

Susan asked for this one, too, another clip from the Sing! Conference–Matt Redman, and Ten Thousand Reasons. Ten thousand reasons to bless the Lord, O my soul…


By Request, ‘Blessings’

Requested by Susan, introduced by Joni Eareckson Tada, and performed by Laura Story: Blessings.

Joni was paralyzed in a swimming pool accident as a teenager in 1967, and has served the Lord in her ministry for decades.


By Request, ‘Living Water’

One of my favorite chapters in the Bible is John 4, in which Jesus meets the Samaritan woman at the well (“and he told me all things that ever I did!”) and tells her of the living water she can get from Him. This song is about that incident.

Requested by Erlene, Living Water by Carroll Roberson from his new album, Unchanging Love.


‘The Hallelujah Chorus’ (Why Not?)

We usually hear this around Christmas-time and Easter, but Jesus Christ is King of kings and Lord of lords all 365 days of the year. Any time’s a good time for The Hallelujah Chorus, from G.F. Handel’s The Messiah: performed by the Royal Choral Society.
