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

Well, we’ve got some worship going on here today, and I feel honored to be hosting it.

Hymn request! From Phoebe: Are You Washed in the Blood of the Lamb?, by Alan Jackson. And you get a bonus, because he segues right into I’ll Fly Away.

By Request, ‘Victory in Jesus’

Ah! We have a hymn request! This one from Thewhiterabbit for Victory in Jesus, sung by the Gaither Group. It always strikes me as odd to see people singing hymns sitting down, but you can’t deny the hymn gets sung.

By Request, ‘God Put a Rainbow in the Clouds’

And here’s another hymn request, this one from Elder Mike: God Put a Rainbow in the Clouds, by the Hayes Family.

I’m having a very hard time navigating here this morning. For the first time EVER, there are zero views of the home page! How does that happen? Never happened before.

By Request, ‘Holy, Holy, Holy Is What the Angels Sing’

Hooray! Hymn requests today! This one’s from Susan: Holy, Holy, Holy Is What the Angels Sing, performed by the students at Fountainview Academy.

(Gee, how do I make a hymn request? Easy! Just leave a comment anywhere on the blog–we’ll find it.)

By Request, ‘He Is Here’

Requested by Erlene–He Is Here, by the Gaither Group, with Wes Hampton as the soloist.

(*Sigh* Look at that weather out there. Cold and rain and grey skies very nearly every day this month.)

By Request, ‘The Battle Belongs to the Lord’

Here’s the other request from Elder Mike–The Battle Belongs to the Lord, by Maranatha! Music. I’ve never heard this one before, but it’s my kind of hymn. Lord, remember how you dealt with Pharaoh’s army by the Red Sea! “Which the Egyptians assaying to do, were drowned” (Hebrews 11:29).

By Request, ‘Onward Christian Soldiers’

No likes, no comments yet today. But I saved two hymn requests made last night by Elder Mike–turns out I needed them.

And so, to get the blog day started, we have this: Onward Christian Soldiers, sung with gusto by students at Fountainview Academy.

By Request, ‘I’m Just a Poor Wayfaring Stranger’

We have this hymn request from Phoebe, I’m Just a Poor Wayfaring Stranger, sung by Johnny Cash. So many wonderful hymns out there…

And oh, look! The sun came out! Thank the Lord for big favors.

By Request, ‘I Surrender All’

Ah, we have hymn requests today! First up, requested by Erlene: I Surrender All, by Carroll Roberson.

Hey, everybody, the hymn shop’s open all day! If you’ve got a hymn you’d like to share, this is the place for it.

By Request, ‘In God’s Green Pastures’

Phoebe asked for this one–In God’s Green Pastures, sung by the Voice of Eden. It’s heartening to hear Christian hymns performed in India: somewhere along the line, we must have done something right.
