We have to remember that we are privileged to answer to a higher authority than any that can be found in this fallen world of ours.
Requested by Erlene–He Looked Beyond My Fault (“and saw my need”), sung by Carroll Roberson. And yes, the melody is one that most of us know as “Danny Boy,” here put to God’s service.
Requested by Joshua, another beautiful hymn by Fernando Ortega–All Flesh Is Like the Grass. The gorgeous background scenery is bittersweet for me. We used to have so much of it, around here. So much beauty! Now almost all of those places are gone as if they’d never been. And I’m still here.
This is Erlene’s hymn request, and I’m not sure I’ve found exactly the one she had in mind–but I do my best. “Prayer is the key to heaven,” sings Carroll Roberson, but Faith Unlocks the Door.
Peep has calmed down somewhat, and we have a hymn request from Susan–Creation Song, by Fernando Ortega. Goes rather nicely with I Sing the Mighty Power of God, don’t you think?
Hymn request from Joshua: Jesus! What a Friend for Sinners! It’s the Welsh hymn, Hyfrydol, with yet another set of lyrics, this one acquired in 1910. I wish I knew who this was, singing it, so I could say thank you. But we can still thank God the Father for his background sets. How beautiful are the works of your hands, O Lord!
That last nooze post jangled me pretty bad, and I’m grateful to Joshua for this hymn request. In fact, this particular hymn, with these visuals, was exactly what I needed.
All Creatures of Our God and King, a good old-fashioned hymn performed by Fernando Ortega… with living things by God the Father.
I don’t want to do a lot of nooze today, but I do want to post hymns. Here’s one requested by Erlene: Majesty, by Maranatha! Music.
Some of you have been here for years without ever requesting a hymn. You don’t have to, of course. But if you do, we’re ready to serve you.
I meant to post this for Joshua this morning, but somehow it slipped away from me. So here it is now, requested by Joshua, performed by Fernando Ortega–What Wondrous Love Is This. Quite beautiful, really.
Inspired by Psalm 95: 6,7, Come, Let Us Worship, sung by Fernando Ortega. Requested by Joshua.
There have been several requests for Rock of Ages lately. Not bad for a hymn published in 1775. Written by Augustus Toplady, sung here by the Antrim Mennonite Choir. Requested by Erlene.
