‘How Firm a Foundation’

I am sure we used to sing this, in our church, to the “Adeste Fideles” (“O Come All Ye Faithful”) melody in our church. Ah, well, it’s good this way, too–

How Firm a Foundation, sung the old-fashioned way by Maddy Prior and the Carnival Band.

‘Lo, He Comes With Clouds Descending’

*Sigh* I’m stuck with a doctor’s appointment this morning. But I’ve found time to post a hymn: one of the good old Charles Wesley hymns, performed the old-fashioned way by Maddy Prior and the Carnival Band. I do love that 18th century sound.

John Bunyan’s Hymn (‘To Be a Pilgrim’)

I sort of accidentally posted this hymn this morning–To Be a Pilgrim, by John Bunyan, performed by Maddy Prior and the Carnival Band. I decided it wasn’t the kind of mistake I needed to correct. Maybe the Lord picked a hymn for us today.

‘Light of the World’

I don’t know how many times I’ve posted this hymn, and I hope you don’t mind hearing it again. I felt a need for it today. This world needs the light of Jesus Christ: nothing else can lift the darkness.

‘To Be a Pilgrim’

I don’t know if anyone will see this, I don’t know if anyone will be able to comment on it, I don’t know if this blog will still exist by suppertime today–

But here’s Maddy Prior and the Carnival Band with John Bunyan’s hymn, To Be a Pilgrim.

Bonus Video, ‘O Worship the King’

I was driving home from errands this morning when this hymn descended on me: what could I do but sing it? O Worship the King, performed the old-fashioned way by Maddy Prior and the Carnival Band–I reckoned I’d better post it, too… so here it is.

‘Light of the World’ (I Need It)

It’s the little things that beat you down. The weather’s dark and dreary, I’m running late, and all sorts of equipment is failing me–blood pressure monitor, Patty’s car, toilet. All at once.

So I pray this hymn blesses me, and all of you who hear it: Light of the World, by Charles Wesley, performed by Maddy Prior and the Carnival Band.

‘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.
