‘Good Christian Men, Rejoice’

This is another ancient carol that I really love–Good Christian Men, Rejoice, from the 14th century: sung here by the Mennonite Hour Singers.

Don’t worry, I’m not trying to win my own carol contest. I just wanted to share this hymn!

‘I Need Thee Every Hour’

I love the 19th-century hymns–especially the ones my mother or my aunts used to sing as they went about their housework. I Need Thee Every Hour first appeared in 1872. Sung here by the Mennonite Hour Singers. Background sets by God the Father.

‘His Eye is on the Sparrow’

I never heard this hymn before, His Eye is on the Sparrow. It comforts me to know God cares for sparrows; surely He cares for us. Sung by the Mennonite Hour Singers. Background sets by God the Father, who made the heavens and the earth.

‘Joyful, Joyful We Adore Thee’

This was the first hymn that popped into my head today; and this performance of it by the Mennonite Hour Singers, plus the gorgeous backdrops provided by our Creator–well, let’s just say I had a hard time swallowing my tea. Joyful, Joyful We Adore Thee–turn up the volume. Sing along, if you can swallow.

‘Joyful, Joyful We Adore Thee’

Joyful, Joyful We Adore Thee, music by Beethoven (9th Symphony), sung by the Mennonite Hour Singers, background sets by God, Creator of heaven and earth: yeah, uh-huh, it’s all here by merest accident.

Listen. Look. Love.

‘I Need Thee Every Hour’

This was one of my mother’s favorite hymns. I can still hear her humming it as she did the ironing. I Need Thee Every Hour–how true that is!

Performed by the Mennonite Hour Singers.

‘From Every Stormy Wind’ (‘The Mercy Seat’)

This hymn has been around since 1828, and yet I never heard of it until this morning, when Susan suggested it. I discover a lot of people love this hymn, which is also known as The Mercy Seat. This a cappella performance is by the Mennonite Hour Singers.
