By Request, ‘10,000 Reasons’

Susan asked for this one, Ten Thousand Reasons–performed by Matt Redman, another hymn sung by a little child with the voice of an angel. “Bless the Lord, O my soul” is a prayer worth praying every day.

‘Redeemed! How I Love to Proclaim It’

Susan heard this hymn for the first time yesterday, in church–another one of the 8,000-plus hymns written by Fanny Crosby–Redeemed! How I Love to Proclaim It. Sung gorgeously by the Martin Family: with background sets by God the Father. You might want to play this one twice!

By Request, ‘Above All’

Joshua requested this, Above All, performed by David Doring on the panflute–plus lyrics, if you want to sing along.

If you’re new here, we take hymn requests every day. So if you have a favorite hymn you’d like to share with others, just leave a comment anywhere, and we’ll do the rest.

By Request, ‘Are You Washed in the Blood?/ I’ll Fly Away’

Requested by Joshua, here you get two hymns for the price of one, as Alan Jackson segues easily from Are You Washed in the Blood? to I’ll Fly Away.

Hymn Request/Sneak Preview, ‘I Stand Amazed’

This hymn had only been up on youtube for an hour this morning, when Susan spotted it; so hey, everybody, you are now among the first to see this video–I Stand Amazed, by the Norton Hall Band. I’ll be surprised if it doesn’t have at least 10,000 views by the end of this day.

By Request, ‘Whispering Hope’

Suggested by Erlene: Whispering Hope, by Jim Reeves (what a mellow voice he had!). And it’s so infernally hot here today, I kind of love the snow imagery.

Y’know, some of you have been here for years without ever requesting a hymn. You know I wind up repeating myself, when the hymn choice is all left up to me.

If you’re new–well, we post one or two hymns every day, you can request as many as you please, and if you have a hymn you’d like to share, just “Leave a Reply” or comment anywhere, and we’ll do the rest.

By Request, ‘Halleluyah’

Erlene requested this–Halleluyah, by the Isaacs: performed (I think) in Jerusalem. A lot of the lyrics are in Hebrew–going back to our roots, there–so I couldn’t understand them; but then I post a lot of Welsh hymns and I don’t understand those lyrics, either. It’s the spirit that counts!

By Request, ‘A Mighty Fortress’ (GLAD)

Requested by Joshua: A Mighty Fortress, performed a capella by GLAD. There were several video treatments available, but at least one, I feared, might not be comfortable to watch–a picture of a pier running out to sea, made to rock up and down, back and forth, I wonder whose idea that was. But we are here to listen to the hymn.

By Request, ‘Arise, My Soul, Arise’

We have a hymn request this morning, this one from Joshua, for Arise, My Soul, Arise by Charles Wesley, performed a capella by Glad. It’s amazing, how well some of the 18th century hymns adapt to modern arrangements.

Yo, if you’re new here, let me tell you that we take hymn requests, one a day or even two, if we can get them. If there’s a favorite hymn or worship song you’d like to see posted here, just let us know and we’ll do the rest. You can make your request as a “reply” to any blog post or comment.

By Request, ‘The King of Love My Shepherd Is’

Requested by Susan (who’s a bit under the weather today, so let’s pray for her), The King of Love My Shepherd Is. Lyrics by Henry Baker, 1868, but the hymn has much deeper roots than that. The melody is associated with a hymn composed to St. Columba, who died in 597–after converting the peoples of Scotland to Christianity.

Arranged by Gonzalo Gonzales. Background sets by God the Father.
