‘Light of the World’

No hymn requests yet today; and it’s raining again, it’s hardly ever sunny out… So I’ll go with one of my favorite hymns, maybe it can lift my spirits and yours–Light of the World by Charles Wesley, sung by Maddy Prior and the Carnival Band.

Bonus Hymn, ‘Light of the World’

This hymn has been knocking at the door of my mind all morning, so I guess I need it: Light of the World, by Charles Wesley, sung by Maddy Prior and the Carnival Band.

We’re missing our Peep this weekend. It’s hard.

‘O Worship the King’

An old Sunday school favorite: I taught myself the harmonica, trying to work out how to play this–

O Worship the King, played and sung the old-fashioned way by Maddy Prior and the Carnival Band.

‘To Be a Pilgrim’

Let’s try this one–John Bunyan’s hymn, To Be a Pilgrim, sung by Maddy Prior and the Carnival Band. It was written to give us courage. May it minister to us all

The raptors are out to get us, but we have to keep going.

Again, thank all of you for our prayers. And please add a prayer for reader “Wyldkat,” whose aged cat is struggling.

‘To Be a Pilgrim’

When you’re up against the wall, and there’s no one to turn to but God–sing louder. Who else can give us mercy? Who else will hear us?

To Be a Pilgrim, by John Bunyan, sung by Maddy Prior and the Carnival Band–please, Father, hear us and help! In Jesus’ name, Amen.

Bonus Hymn, ‘Light of the World’

I know, I know, I post this hymn rather often. I’ve been worried for my wife, worried for my cat–and Phoebe’s cat, Iggy, needs your prayers today–had a poor night’s sleep… but this hymn is soul medicine.

Light of the World by Charles Wesley, sung the old-fashioned way by Maddy Prior and the Carnival Band. It never fails to stir my soul. I hope it does the same for you.

‘O Worship the King’

No requests this morning, so I guess I’ll just go with one of my favorites–O Worship the King, performed by Maddy Prior and the Carnival Band.

If you’re new here: anyone can request a hymn, and I try to post them all. Just mention it in a comment anywhere on the blog.

‘Away With Our Sorrow and Care’

Here’s one I’d never heard before, a Charles Wesley classic–Away with Our Sorrow and Care, performed the old-fashioned way by Maddy Prior and the Carnival Band.

We’re still sick here, still in need of prayers. I still can’t focus long enough to write a Newswithviews piece.

‘How Firm a Foundation’

Still sitting here groggy, still sick…

How about an old-fashioned hymn, done the old-fashioned way? How Firm a Foundation, by Maddy Prior and the Carnival Band–yes, that’s the ticket.

‘O Thou Who Camest from Above’

I’d never heard this hymn before today–O Thou Who Camest from Above, by Charles Wesley: played and sung the old-fashioned way by Maddy Prior and the Carnival Band. This is what the hymn sounded like, two hundred years ago.
