By Request, ‘Holy, Holy, Holy Are You, Lord’

There’s some horrific nooze out there I have to look into, and a special announcement that I want to make; but first a hymn. Requested by Erlene: Holy, Holy, Holy Are You, Lord, by Terry MacAlmon.

By Request, ‘In the Sweet By and By’

Requested by Joshua: In the Sweet By and By, sung by Simon Khorolskiy. We didn’t know he could sing American country music style! Thank you, Joshua.

By Request, ‘Rock of Ages’

We have a hymn request from Erlene, something to wash out the acrid aftertaste of nooze–Rock of Ages, sung with gusto by the students at Fountainview Academy.

You’d be hard-put to find a church where this is never sung.

By Request, ‘I Can Only Imagine’

We have a hymn request from Thewhiterabbit, I Can Only Imagine, by Mercy Me.

Old photographs of old chapters in our lives, and loved ones who’ve passed on…

How could we live a minute in this fallen world, without Our Lord Jesus Christ?

By Request, ‘He Is Here’

I really do have to get some vacuuming done upstairs today; but first another hymn. Requested by Erlene, He Is Here, by the Gaither Group. Soloist: Wes Hampton.

We’re not going to run out of hymns, everybody–so don’t be bashful about requesting one.

By Request, ‘Are You Washed in the Blood of the Lamb?’

Requested by Phoebe, Are You Washed in the Blood of the Lamb? This rousing rendition is by the Antrim Mennonite Choir. The hymn’s from 1878 and still going strong.

Hey out there! Some of you have never yet requested a hymn. Well, what’re you waiting for? There’ll never be a better time to do it. It’s not like they can do much more damage to my search engine ranking than they’ve done already.

By Request, ‘On Eagle’s Wings’

I’m late this morning, but it’s The Incredible Shrinking Blog, so what does it matter?

Requested by Thewhiterabbit, On Eagle’s Wings, by Michael Joncas, sung by Walkers to Heaven. And I’m lucky I got it posted at all, the way this computer is misbehaving just now.

By Request, ‘Morning Has Broken’

Cat Stevens seems an odd choice to convey God’s message; but the Lord chooses whom He will; and if it ever happens to be you, rejoice!

Requested by our friend in Scotland, Ina: Morning Has Broken, sung by Cat Stevens. And with gorgeous photos to go with it!

What–too many hymns? Forget it, Mr. Censor. You’ve already knocked me down, and I’ll post as many hymns as people ask for.

By Request, ‘Great Is Thy Faithfulness’

Here’s another hymn, this one requested by Thewhiterabbit: Great Is Thy Faithfulness, sung by the Blue Rock Mennonite Youth. Background sets by God the Father.

We’re open to all reader requests today. Don’t be shy.

By Request, ‘Mount Up with Wings’

We have some hymn requests stacked up, and I’ll try to fulfill them all–starting with this one from Erlene, Mount Up with Wings by Dallas Holm.

Unless there’s a demand for it, I don’t plan on doing any nooze this weekend.
