‘Will the Circle Be Unbroken’

People first heard this hymn in 1907–Will the Circle Be Unbroken, sung here by Randy Travis. It’s on the list of Your Favorite Hymns, so here it is… by popular demand.

If you have a favorite hymn, or half a dozen favorite hymns, you’d like to share, just let us know. It’s time to re-load the list.

‘When the Saints Go Marching In’

Your favorite Hymns continues with When the Saints Go Marching In, by Evensong. It seems strange not to have Louis Armstrong singing this, but I think you’ll like this simple rendition, too.

If you have a favorite hymn you’d like to add to the list, just leave a reply/comment anywhere on this uncrowded blog.

By Request, ‘Seek Ye First the Kingdom of God’

Let’s start off with a hymn requested by TheWhiteRabbit–Seek Ye First the Kingdom of God, by Ingrid DuMosch. Backed up with gorgeous photography of God’s handiwork.

By Request, ‘I Surrender All’

And a hymn request from Erlene has come in–I Surrender All, performed by Lifeway Worship. I’d never heard this one before. Well, we’re not going to run out of hymns, are we?

By Request, ‘Way Maker’

Our first hymn request of the day comes from SlimJim–Way Maker, a worship song by Michael W. Smith.

I don’t know if I’ll get around to doing any nooze today.

‘Unclouded Day’

Continuing down the list of Your Favorite Hymns–which needs replenishing, by the way–we have Unclouded Day, sung here by the Conspirare Choir. This is spectacular singing, and I’m sure God loves to hear it.

By Request: Andre Rieu, ‘Nearer My God to Thee’

I’m happy to honor a hymn request from a new reader, Carla, who asked for anything by Andre Rieu. I usually post him around Christmas-time: my aunts always had him on TV.

So here he is with his orchestra, and Nearer My God to Thee–and this rendition of the hymn will move you.

‘This World Is Not My Home’

Here’s one from the list of Your Favorite Hymns–This World Is Not My Home, sung by Jim Reeves.

We’re more than halfway down the list, so now would be a good time to starting loading up the cart again.

One More Hymn, by Request: ‘Praise to the Lord’

This hymn always stirs my soul, and we have to thank Joshua for requesting it–Praise to the Lord, the Almighty, sung here by Daniel Craig.

Gee, I’m starting to feel like a Christian disc jockey. But hymns are ammunition that the Lord has given us, to sling at the devil–and He has made sure that we’ll never run out of it. So keep on slinging!

Bonus Hymn, ‘We Rest on Thee’

I have to welcome a new reader, Swee Eng, with an apology–sorry, but I can’t find the hymn you requested, although my wife and I looked all over Youtube for it. It’s very hard to find a hymn when we’re not given the title. Usually the first line will do the trick, but not this time. If you can give us the title, we’ll try again.

Meanwhile, here’s one it turned out not to be–We Rest on Thee, sung by the Mennonite Hour Singers with beautiful background sets by God the Maker of Heaven and Earth.

And of course you can always request another one.
