Joshua wanted to know if it was OK for him to request hymns two days in a row. Well, of course it is! Y’know, some of you have been here at this blog for years and have never requested a hymn. The hymn shop’s always open, though. And we’ll never send you a bill.
So, requested by Joshua, here’s Fernando Ortega and Oh, God, You Are My God–after Psalm 63.
Recognize this? It’s Psalm 51, set to music.
Requested by Erlene, some of the kids from Fountainview Academy on Moonstone Beach, California, singing Create in Me a Clean Heart–David’s psalm of repentance.
This is Psalm 51 set to music–the Psalm David wrote when he realized how grievously he’d sinned in taking Bathsheba for his wife after arranging for her husband, Uriah, to be killed in battle. We all need to prayer this prayer: “Create in me a clean heart and a right spirit.”
Requested by Erlene, sung by girls from Fountainview Academy, and filmed on Moonstone Beach, California–Create in Me a Clean Heart.
(All right, let’s see if I can get this one to appear tomorrow instead of today.)
Requested by Susan, How Good It Is to Thank the Lord is Psalm 92 set to music.
This is a psalm about the Messiah, Our Lord Jesus Christ. It words provide no comfort to His enemies; but to us who love Him, they are sweet.
This is Good Friday, marking His humiliation and torment and death on the Cross–for us. For you and for me.
This Psalm is about what happens afterward.
