By Request, ‘In the Garden’

Both Erlene and Phoebe called for this one, so here it is–In the Garden, sung by Alan Jackson.

And now to wait for the snowstorm…


By Request, ‘How Great Thou Art’

Erlene requested How Great Thou Art–and who doesn’t love this hymn? I chose this rendition by Burl Ives: not the greatest sound reproduction, but I couldn’t resist the video. Beautiful flowing streams like that whisper to us, “God is nigh, God created me, He created you… God is nigh.” So you may have to turn up the volume a bit.


By Request, ‘Listen to Him’

Requested by Joshua, Listen to Him, by Acapella–a hymn about the Transfiguration.

While he yet spake, behold, a bright cloud overshadowed them: and behold a voice out of the cloud, which said, This is my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased; hear ye him.  –Matthew 17:5

In all the “Bible movies” I’ve watched, I’ve never seen a reenactment of the Transfiguration, in which Our Lord Jesus Christ was revealed as the very Son of God. I wonder why that is.


By Request, ‘He’s Still God’

Requested by Erlene to start the day: He’s Still God, by Carroll Roberson.

Any more hymn requests out there? Let’s have ’em!


By Request, ‘All My Sins Have Been Forgiven’

Susan asked for this one, All My Sins Have Been Forgiven, performed by Church Folk at Wheaton College, Massachusetts. This is a new hymn, first published in 1974. Kind of a new sound to go with it, here.


‘Look Ye Saints, the Sight is Glorious’

A classic hymn from 1809, suggested by Susan–Look, Ye Saints, the Sight is Glorious, performed by the Scottish Festival Singers.

I know that melody goes with another well-known hymn, but just at this moment I can’t remember what it is. Hats off to whoever can come up with it.


By Request, ‘God Is My Rock’

Thank you, Joshua, for requesting this–God Is My Rock, by GLAD.


‘Jesus Saves’ (Fountainview Academy)

I loved this hymn for years, without knowing any of its lyrics, or its name. Church bells played it now and then; that’s how I heard it. Used to be you could hear all the church bells in this town. Now you can’t: too much traffic, too many people with leaf-blowers.

So here it is: Jesus Saves, performed by the kids of Fountainview Academy during their visit to Rome.

And we are open for readers’ hymn requests, open all day…


By Request, ‘We Believe’

Five out of five stars for this one, everyone! Requested by “thewhiterabbit,” We Believe, by the Newsboys–turn up the volume.

This is what we believe!

This is what we have in mind, when the days seem dark and we receive the word, “Sing louder!”


By Request, ‘God So Loved the World’

This just in, a hymn request from Joshua: For God So Loved the World, by GLAD.
