‘All Hail the Power of Jesus’ Name’

An old-fashioned Sunday school favorite–All Hail the Power of Jesus’ Name, sung by the congregation at Southwest Baptist Church in Oklahoma City.

Please, everybody pray for my wife: she’s not getting better, and we’ve both fallen way behind in our work. We appeal to the power of Jesus’ name–please, Father, heal us.

‘Because He Lives’

Let’s have some old-fashioned congregational singing! Because He Lives, by everybody who can fit into the building at Southwest Baptist Church, Oklahoma City.

The hymn shop is open for requests.

‘Bringing in the Sheaves’ (Congregational)

How would this hymn sound if a lot of people sang it, all at once?

It’d sound great!

Bringing in the Sheaves, sung by the congregation and choir at Southwest Baptist Church, Oklahoma City. Plus piano, of course: just as I remember it from Sunday school.

‘A Mansion Over the Hilltop’

another good old-fashioned hymn I’d never heard before–A Mansion Over the Hilltop, sung by choir and congregation at Southwest Baptist Church, Oklahoma City. There’s something to be said for a whole crowd of Christians singing a hymn together!

By Request, ‘Because He Lives’

Thanks to Erlene for suggesting this hymn, Because He Lives (I Can Face Tomorrow), sung by choir and congregation at Southwest Baptist Church, Oklahoma City.

There’s a lot to be said for a whole bunch of Christians singing a hymn together. Wouldn’t it be wonderful if we could somehow do that here, online? Invent a way to do that, somebody!

By Request, ‘I Am Thine, O Lord’

Requested by Erlene, another Fanny Crosby hymn–I Am Thine, O Lord (Draw Me Nearer), sung by the congregation at Southwest Baptist Church in Oklahoma City. It might be a little hard to make out all the lyrics, but there’s something to be said for a church packed chock-full of Christians singing a hymn.

Anybody out there want to go for a third Fanny Crosby? The hymn shop is open.

‘Dwelling in Beulah Land’

Here’s another hymn I’d never heard before, from 1911–Dwelling in Beulah Land, sung by the congregation at Southwest Baptist Church, Oklahoma City. Lyrics inspired by Isaiah 64:2. The melody is also used as… the national anthem of Fiji.

‘Bringing in the Sheaves’

There’s much to be said for a strong piano and a lot of people singing! This is the congregation at Southwest Baptist Church, Oklahoma City–and Bringing in the Sheaves. One of my favorite hymns to sing.
