By Request, ‘Embrace the Cross’

Before I cover any more nooze–if I cover any more nooze–we have a hymn request from Joshua: Embrace the Cross, sung by Steve Green.

It’s not as easy to do as we might think.

By Request, ‘There Is Power in the Blood’

We have two hymn requests this morning instead of none, so I have hastened to post them! This one is There Is Power in the Blood, requested by Joshua, performed by Fernando Ortega.

If we ever needed hymns, we need them now.

By Request, ‘Take My Hand, Precious Lord’

Phoebe asked for this hymn–Take My Hand, Precious Lord, by Jim Reeves. She’s feeling a little under the weather today, so let’s remember to include her in our prayers.

By Request, ‘When I Cry’

Lydia asked for this one–When I Cry, sung by students at Fountainview Academy. It reminds me of the shortest verse in the Bible: “Jesus wept” (John 11:35). It’s amazing, how much can be said in just two words.

By Request, ‘Just a Closer Walk with Thee’

Requested by Phoebe: Just a Closer Walk with Thee, sung by Carroll Roberson. There are a lot of performers who sing this one. I’d never heard it before; but I love the painting illustrating the song.

By Request, ‘Though You Slay Me’


Requested by Joshua: Though You Slay Me, by Shane and Shane–with a snatch of sermon by John Piper.

The things that hurt us really hurt us–but they are not meaningless. Nothing God does is meaningless.

By Request, ‘My Savior’s Love’

You wouldn’t believe how bad our weather is today, here in central Jersey. But this hymn request from Joshua has brightened it up: My Savior’s Love, by Maranatha Music.

By Request, ‘Does Jesus Care?’

Requested by Lydia, let’s make it the first post of the day–Does Jesus Care, written in 1901 by Frank Graff, performed by the students at Fountainview Academy. Doesn’t that snow look beautiful!

By Request, ‘To Be a Pilgrim’

Requested by Joshua, one of my very favorite hymns, To Be a Pilgrim, by John Bunyan: and belted out but good by Maddy Prior and the Carnival Band. The hymn may be better known as He Who Would Valiant Be, with slightly different lyrics; but we have it here as John Bunyan wrote it.

By Request, ‘Is He Worthy?’

We have this beautiful worship song as a hymn request from Susan–Is He Worthy? by Andrew Peterson. Yes! The lion of the tribe of Judah is worthy to open the scroll!

Keep the hymns coming, folks. We need ’em.
