‘Yield Not to Temptation’

First hymn to pop into my mind this morning, no requests forthcoming–an old Sunday school favorite, Yield Not to Temptation. Sung by Nathan and Lyle, and also known as Look Ever to Jesus.

‘Wonderful Words of Life’

This hymn was a real Sunday school favorite–Wonderful Words of Life, sung by the Dallas Christian Adult Concern Choir. It brings back sweet memories.

Background sets and scenery by God the Father.

‘I Sing the Mighty Power of God’

I have an eye doctor’s appointment, so all I can do for now is post a hymn. I Sing the Mighty Power of God, sung by the Mountain Anthems, written by Isaac Watts in 1715–it’s been one of my favorites since I was a boy in Sunday school. Beautiful!

By Request, ‘All Hail the Power of Jesus’ Name’

Requested by Thewhiterabbit: All Hail the Power of Jesus’ Name, sung by the Blue Rock Mennonite Youth.

There’s another melody that goes with this hymn, but I can’t seem to find it. Does anybody out there know?

Bonus Hymn: ‘For the Beauty of the Earth’

The sun has just peeked out today, and given us a beautiful fall landscape: all of it the work of God’s hands.

Evil news abounds. There’ll be plenty of it tomorrow. But here and now, let us enjoy God’s protection and praise Him for His work.

For the Beauty of the Earth, sung by Michelle Swift… old Sunday school favorite.

‘Stand Up, Stand Up, for Jesus’

It’s been too long since I heard this old Sunday school favorite–Stand Up, Stand Up for Jesus, sung by students from Fountainview Academy, complete with full orchestra. This hymn ought to perk you up! And if you’d like to hear another one today, please let me know.

‘He Leadeth Me’

The dreary grey weather’s back, we have no hymn requests… so let’s have this one, an old Sunday school favorite: He Leadeth Me.

Sung by the Mennonite Hour Men’s Quartet. Background sets by the hand of God the Father.

By Request, ‘Praise to the Lord, the Almighty’

This is another one of my Sunday school favorites: Praise to the Lord, the Almighty, requested by Elder Mike, sung by the Altar of Praise Men’s Chorale.

We’re open for hymn requests all day; if there’s a hymn you’d like to share, don’t be shy.

ReJoice, Ye Pure In Heart

Rain, rain, and more rain, I’m running late, not much action here at all… So here’s the first hymn that came into my head today: Rejoice, Ye Pure In Heart. It’s an old Sunday school favorite; and the photo reminds me of the outdoor chapel at Y Camp.

Begone, Evil Vision

All right, Mr. Nightmare, just back off, get lost–the Word of God is here!

Bringing in the Sheaves was a Sunday school favorite, even if a lot of us weren’t sure what “sheaves” were. All I know about this lively version is that it was posted by the Islington Baptist Church. And it suits me this morning, as I hope it suits you.
