Isaac Watts’ hymns from the 18th century are still much loved today. By request: O God, Our Help in Ages Past, sung by the Sharon Mennonite Bible Institute Singers. Background sets by God the Father.

By Request, ‘O, God, Our Help in Ages Past’

Phoebe asked for this one–O, God, Our Help in Ages Past, a classic hymn by Isaac Watts, published in 1719 and still loved today. Sung here by the Sharon Mennonite Bible Singers.

Would you believe we used to sing this in assembly, at high school? But that was before “judges” decided that we couldn’t anymore.

Would you believe it? We used to sing this hymn in high school, in assembly. But that was an altogether cleaner, saner time.

Requested by Phoebe, sung by the Sharon Mennonite Bible Institute Singers, a classic hymn–O God, Our Help in Ages Past. Let us lift up our eyes unto the hills…

By Request, ‘O God Our Help in Ages Past’

I have two hymn requests today, and I’m happy to post them both. In a little while I’ll explain why.

First, requested by Phoebe, O God, Our Help in Ages Past, written by Isaac Watts, sung by the Sharon Mennonite Bible Institute Singers. Would you believe we used to sing this in high school, for assembly? They don’t praise God in public schools anymore, and America is by far the poorer for it.

‘O God, Our Help in Ages Past’

This is a beautiful a capella rendition of O, God Our Help in Ages Past–and would you believe we used to sing this in assembly at high school? It’s true. And then along came the Supreme Court with its amazing discovering that what the Constitution really meant all along was that Christianity may never be expressed in public–and we see with what result. God forgive us and defend us, and bring us back to our senses.

‘O God, Our Help in Ages Past’ (A New Look)

This classic hymn, O God Our Help in Ages Past–words by Isaac Watts (him again!), first published back in 1719–gets a racing version sometime in the 1990s, by, I think, the Maranatha Promise Keepers.

No, I haven’t visited any news sites yet, or turned on the radio: been doing a lot of praying, though.

O Lord Our God, go out before us and tread down your enemies!

‘O God, Our Help in Ages Past’

O God, Our Help in Ages Past, composed by Isaac Watts in 1719, still has power to move us today. Here we have it augmented with scenes of the beautiful English countryside–I think what C.S. Lewis would have called “the real England,” which is a shadow of something even better, found in Heaven.

Don’t worry–I’m only here so early because I wanted to ride my bike before it got too hot.

This fine old hymn by Isaac Watts, O God, Our Help in Ages Past–would you believe we used to sing this at assembly, in high school? That was before the Supreme Court realized how much harm Jesus Christ does us.

For the love of God, if your children are in a public school, please get them out of there.

‘O, God, Our Help in Ages Past’

Turn up the volume and sing along–this wonderful, 300-year-old hymn by Isaac Watts (not Springsteen), O God Our Help in Ages Past.

This is yet another hymn we used to sing in assembly at high school, before the times got so bad and the wicked took over the country.

‘O, God, Our Help in Ages Past’

I really didn’t feel like posting a hymn before I rushed off to the doctor this morning and found out what I was in for. But then I thought I’d better take the same advice I keep dispensing: sing louder. When things get bad, sing louder.

So here is Diane Bish on a colossal big pipe organ performing O, God, Our Help in Ages Past.

And our hope in years to come: although if He sees me through this morning without any evil tidings falling on my head, I’ll be very thankful for that.
