‘To God Be the Glory’

No hymn requests today, I guess I’m on my own again. [Hymn pops into his mind.] All right, why not, how about this? To God Be the Glory, performed by students at Fountainview Academy.

And now it’s time to medicate the cat…

Encore! ‘We Are Not Alone’

Yes, I know I posted this not too long ago–We Are Not Alone, by Pepper Choplin, sung by The Voice of Eden. But I had a hankering for it today. O Lord our God, how we need your Spirit! We need to remember: God is with us.

Bonus Hymn: ‘All Glory Be to Christ Our King’ (Plus Prayer Request)

I don’t know–my soul cried for this hymn today, so here it is: All Glory Be to Christ, by King’s Kaleidoscope.

And please, everybody: we haven’t heard from our dear sister Erlene for three days now, so let’s pray that she’s all right and it’s only her computer on the fritz again. Please, Lord, protect her, bless her, heal her. In Jesus’ name, Amen.

Beautiful! ‘It Is Well With My Soul’

In 1873 Horatio Spafford lost everything–all his wealth (in the Chicago Fire), and his children, in a calamity at sea. And he wrote It Is Well With My Soul.

His hymn comes to us today from Chennai, India, sung by the Choir Masters Assn. in the Voice of Eden ministry. I couldn’t tell my wife about it without my voice breaking–the hymn is that beautiful, and it stirred my soul today.

There is some powerful Christianity coming forth from India!

By Request, ‘Are You Washed in the Blood of the Lamb?’

Well, we’ve got some worship going on here today, and I feel honored to be hosting it.

Hymn request! From Phoebe: Are You Washed in the Blood of the Lamb?, by Alan Jackson. And you get a bonus, because he segues right into I’ll Fly Away.

‘Turn Your Eyes Upon Jesus’

*Sigh* No hymn requests this morning. Oh, well… it’s been a while since I posted one by Alan Jackson, isn’t it? So let’s go with this one–Turn Your Eyes Upon Jesus.

The hymn shop’s open, everybody…

‘Fairest Lord Jesus’

No hymn requests today, so I’m on my own. Let’s go with Fairest Lord Jesus, with some of the students at Fountainview Academy.

Anyone can request a hymn to be posted here, you know. Anyone. All you have to do is ask.

By Request, ‘Victory in Jesus’

Ah! We have a hymn request! This one from Thewhiterabbit for Victory in Jesus, sung by the Gaither Group. It always strikes me as odd to see people singing hymns sitting down, but you can’t deny the hymn gets sung.

‘All Hail the Power of Jesus’ Name’

I haven’t posted this hymn in a while, have I? All Hail the Power of Jesus’ Name.

We sang this a lot in Sunday school and church; but in our hymnal, the lyrics were set to the melody of O Come, All Ye Faithful. I can’t find that version anywhere.

‘Praise Him, Praise Him!’

Our friends and esteemed colleagues, Joshua and Jeremy Swanson,  have an instrumental hymn for us–Praise Him! Praise Him!–with lyrics so you can sing along. This is another one of Fanny Crosby’s nine thousand hymns.
