By Request, ‘When You Call on Him’

Requested by Erlene, When You Call on Him, by Carroll Roberson. He’s singing by the shore of Sprague Lake in Rocky Mountain National Park. Look how clean that water is! As if God had only just made it.

Please pray for me, my brain today feels like it ran head-on into a brick wall, but there are important things I want to write about and so far I just can’t do it. I very rarely have this problem and it always worries me when I do.


By Request, ‘The Way’

Requested by Erlene, The Way, sung by Carroll Roberson.

The hymn shop is always open, open to all. Anyone can request a hymn. Just leave a comment anywhere on the blog, and we’ll do the rest.


By Request, ‘Redeemed! How I Love to Proclaim It’

Joshua, I am so glad I put off this hymn request of yours until after all the trouble with the stolen credit card! It has done me good: thank you.

Requested by Joshua, Redeemed! How I Love to Proclaim It, a Fanny Crosby classic, sung by the Martin Family, with glorious photography of God’s handiwork by Vickie Barnes.


By Request, ‘Jesus, Keep Me Near the Cross’

Requested by Erlene, a classic Fanny Crosby hymn from 1869, Jesus, Keep Me Near the Cross. Sung by the Smucker Family. Background sets by God the Father.


By Request, ‘Keep Your Eyes on the Prize’

Phoebe asked for this hymn, but couldn’t come up with the title. But seek and ye shall find–Keep Your Eyes on the Prize and Hold On, sung by the Milwaukee Children’s Choir. Inspired by Acts 16:16-40, in which God delivered Paul and Silas out of prison in Philippi–and converting the jailer to faith in Jesus Christ.


By Request, ‘Better Than Life’

Requested by Joshua, Better Than Life, by Acappella–echoes of the Psalms, and plenty of them.


By Request, ‘A Mighty Fortress’

Lest we grow downhearted, surveying our scarred and cratered cultural landscape, we have this timely hymn request from Susan–A Mighty Fortress Is Our God by Martin Luther, interpreted by Matt Boswell.

Whatever happens, we have got

The Spirit of God–and they have not.


By Request, ‘More Precious Than Gold’

Back from the vet’s just in time to take this hymn request from Joshua–More Precious Than Gold, by Acappella. If the lyrics sound familiar to you, they should: they’re from Psalm 19, “The heavens declare the glory of God…”

Peep is cross now, but the vet thinks she seems pretty healthy. We have to wait for lab work to know for sure. Thank you, everybody, for your prayers.


By Request, ‘He Looked Beyond My Fault’

Requested by Erlene: He Looked Beyond My Fault and Saw My Need, sung by The Hoppers. I had never heard this hymn before, but of course I knew the melody–as Danny Boy.


By Request, ‘In My Father’s House’

Requested by Erlene (see how easy it is?)–In My Father’s House, by Carroll Roberson. “In my father’s house are many mansions: if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you.” (John 14:2)
