‘I Know That My Redeemer Lives’

Job said it first; but then Charles Wesley said it, and now Maddy Prior and the Carnival Band sing it: I Know That My Redeemer Lives.

Background sets by God the Father, maker of heaven and earth.


‘How Firm a Foundation’

How Firm a Foundation was published in 1787. In our church we sung it to the tune of “O Come All Ye Faithful,” but I think we must have been the only ones to do that.

Performed here the old-fashioned way by Maddy Prior and the Carnival Band.


Bonus Hymn, ‘To Be a Pilgrim’

We’re about to go out doctoring, then I’ll have to buy the week’s groceries, and anyway there’s hardly anybody here today… and I felt a need for this hymn: To Be a Pilgrim, by John Bunyan. Performed with, shall we say, conviction by Maddy Prior and the Carnival Band.

I have no idea when I’ll be back.


‘Lord, in the Morning’

Here’s a hymn by Isaac Watts that I’d never heard before today–Lord, in the Morning, performed by Maddy Prior and the Carnival Band.

If you’re new here, as many of our readers are, please not that we take hymn requests–as many as we can get. If you have a favorite hymn you’d like to share, just let us know by leaving a comment anywhere on the blog.


‘All Hail the Power of Jesus’ Name’

Sung the old-fashioned way by Maddy Prior and the Carnival Band, All Hail the Power of Jesus’ Name–and we’re going to need the power of that name: there is no other name by which we might be saved.


‘Light of the World’

I hope you don’t mind my posting this again–Light of the World, by Charles Wesley, performed by Maddy Prior and the Carnival Band–it’s one of my favorites.

I’ll post your favorite hymns, too. All you’ve got to do is ask.


‘How Firm a Foundation’

This is a superb rendition, by Maddy Prior and the Carnival Band, of How Firm a Foundation. In our old church it was sung to the tune of O Come All Ye Faithful, but that seems to have been an unusual choice.


‘O, Worship the King’

I’ve always loved this hymn–it was the first one I learned to play on my harmonica–and this has become my favorite rendition of it: O Worship the King, by Maddy Prior and the Carnival Band. And the class works of art don’t hurt, either.


‘I Know That My Redeemer Lives’

We are all sinners and we all need redemption. God knows this, and has provided it–in the person of His Son, Jesus Christ.

Sung by Maddy Prior and the Carnival Band, written by Charles Wesley–I Know That My Redeemer Lives.


‘Lo He Comes with Clouds Descending’

Here’s another Charles Wesley hymn by Maddy Prior and the Carnival Band–Lo He Comes with Clouds Descending. This is the event longed for by every Christian in the world.

And in the meantime: sing, pray, work.
