One More Hymn, by Request: ‘Praise to the Lord’

This hymn always stirs my soul, and we have to thank Joshua for requesting it–Praise to the Lord, the Almighty, sung here by Daniel Craig.

Gee, I’m starting to feel like a Christian disc jockey. But hymns are ammunition that the Lord has given us, to sling at the devil–and He has made sure that we’ll never run out of it. So keep on slinging!

By Request, ‘Praise to the Lord, the Almighty’

Turn up the volume on this one, and let ‘er rip! Requested by Joshua, Praise to the Lord, the Almighty: sung by Fernando Ortega, written by the German poet Joachim Neander in 1680; and yes, his name, and the name of the Neander River, is the root of the name of “Neanderthal Man.”

This hymn was a great favorite in my church and Sunday school. I still love it today.

Bonus Hymn, ‘Praise to the Lord, the Almighty’

Too much hurly-burly! And on Good Friday, no less. Time to re-focus. Get back to the center of Creation, the Lord Our God. Time for a hymn.

‘Praise to the Lord, the Almighty’

Here, I’ve got one with lyrics for you, so you can sing along with the Altar of Praise Men’s Chorale–Praise to the Lord, the Almighty. It’s a wonderful thing, what trained human voices can do by way of making music. Make a joyful noise unto the Lord, all ye lands!

‘Praise to the Lord, the Almighty’

I found this hymn, coupled with the beautiful examples of God’s handiwork, very moving–Praise to the Lord, the Almighty, sung by the Altar of Praise Men’s Chorale.

By Request, ‘Praise to the Lord the Almighty, the King of Creation’

Turn up the volume and immerse yourself in the music, and the photographs of God’s handiwork–which tell us, always, “God is nigh.” Sung by the London Philharmonic Choir. Thank you, Dave, for requesting it.

‘Praise to the Lord, the Almighty’

This was one of my mother’s favorite hymns, Praise to the Lord, the Almighty, sung here by the Altar of Praise Men’s Chorale. It was written in the 1600s by Pastor Joachim Neander–for whom the Neanderthal Valley, in Germany is named: and for whom, indirectly, Neanderthal Man is named.

Why are these beautiful pictures shown with so many of the hymns? Because they are pictures of God’s handiwork–hymns sung to God by His Creation itself.

‘Praise to the Lord the Almighty’

Enough of staring in appalled amazement at the daily news–let’s seek peace and refuge in praise of our Lord, the Rock of our salvation–“My goodness and my fortress, my high tower and my deliverer: my shield, and He in whom I trust” (Psalm 144).

This is the London Philharmonic Choir, plus some lovely illustrations of God’s handiwork.

God’s stuff works, even if ours doesn’t.
