By Request, ‘Rock of Ages’ (New Melody)

Susan asked for this one: Rock of Ages, same lyrics, but with a new melody by James Ward, who also sings it.

We’ll take more hymn requests as they come in.


By Request, ‘Rock of Ages’-Plus

This hymn request came in from Joshua late yesterday, so I saved it for this morning–Guy Penrod singing a medley of Rock of Ages and I Stand Amazed. I don’t like to use up all the hymn requests at once, in case I don’t get any the next day.

 


By Request, ‘Rock of Ages’

There have been several requests for Rock of Ages lately. Not bad for a hymn published in 1775. Written by Augustus Toplady, sung here by the Antrim Mennonite Choir. Requested by Erlene.


‘Rock of Ages’

If we pay attention to the lyrics, we find sound theology: Rock of Ages, written by Augustus Toplady in 1775, and performed here by the Antrim Mennonite Choir.


By Request, ‘Rock of Ages’

Rock of Ages, by Rev. A.M. Toplady, was first published in 1775 and has remained popular ever since–but you’ve never heard it sung like this before. Requested by Joshua: Rock of Ages, sung a capella by GLAD.


‘Rock of Ages’

I always think of this as the 19th century hymn; but actually it was written in 1763 by Augustus Toplady: Rock of Ages, performed here by the Antrim Mennonite Choir.

If you’re new here, and you have a favorite hymn you’d like to share, just let us know and we’ll do the rest.

Bonus Hymn, ‘Rock of Ages’

I’m posting this because last night I dreamed I was in a church, among the congregation, and we were singing Rock of Ages. I don’t know why I dreamed it: I just go with what the Lord gives me. Just take it up and go.

This beautiful a capella rendition is by the Antrim Mennonite Choir.


‘Rock of Ages’

We’ve all heard this hymn a thousand times: Rock of Ages, published in 1775.  But it pays to pretend you’ve never heard it before–and listen. The lyrics preach a central tenet of Christianity.

Performed by the Antrim Mennonite Choir. Background sets by the Lord Our God, Maker of heaven and earth.


‘Rock of Ages’ (Fountainview Academy)

If you’re new to this blog–and a lot of you are–you should know we like to start each blogging day with a hymn; and we especially like hymns requested by readers. If you have a hymn you’d like to see posted here, just let us know (“Leave a Reply”).

Meanwhile, here’s Rock of Ages, sung by the kids at Fountainview Academy, British Columbia. I wonder if they have any idea how many people have been blessed by their music.
