By Request, ‘Hallelujah, Praise Jehovah’

Susan requested this, and I loved it too much to hold it over for tomorrow–Hallelujah, Praise Jehovah. Sung with gusto by the choir and congregation at The Church of God. But we can always count on them for that!

‘No, Not One’

No, Not One is from 1895, but I’d never heard it until last night. This spirited rendition is by the choir and congregation at The Church of God.

Make a joyful noise unto the Lord!

‘He Hideth My Soul’ (The Church of God)

I love these spirited renditions of hymns performed by the choir and congregation at The Church of God. This is a good old Fanny Crosby hymn, He Hideth My Soul.

We’re taking hymn requests today and every day, so if you have a favorite hymn you’d like to share, just let us know. Leave a comment anywhere, and we’ll do the rest.

Encore, ‘Leaning on the Everlasting Arms’

Pump up the volume and go with the hymn! This spirited rendition of Leaning on the Everlasting Arms is by The Church of God.

Hey, we need those arms! Who has never needed to be carried by the Lord? He gives us every breath we breathe.

Sing louder.

‘Til the Storm Passes By’

I never heard this hymn before, but it’s well worth hearing–not to mention the beautiful sound created by the choir of The Church of God. Amazing, what the human voice can do. ‘Til the Storm Passes By–make sure you catch the lyrics.

‘To God Be the Glory’ (Embrace the Wildness)

We do like to do things decently and in good order, as St. Paul admonished the church in Corinth. But at the same time, our Christian faith contains a note of wildness which shouldn’t be ignored. Our faith often runs head-on against the wisdom of this world. It’s supposed to do that!

So I like this wild rendition of To God Be the Glory by the choir of The Church of God, with the congregation also putting their hearts into it.

And really–if you can’t get worked up about God Almighty… well, you probably ought to think about that.

Encore, ‘Leaning on the Everlasting Arms’

I’m sure I’ve posted this before, but it’s a great hymn with which to start the day–Leaning on the Everlasting Arms. This rousing, blow-the-doors-off rendition is by the choir and congregation of The Church of God.

‘Victory in Jesus’

This hymn, Victory in Jesus, is from 1939, and here enjoys a spirited rendition by the choir and congregation at The Church of God. I’d never heard it until this morning.

NOTE: I am requesting your requests! I’ve taken on the duty to post at least one hymn here every day, and I’d have a much easier time of it if more of you would request hymns. At the very least, I’d be repeating myself less often. So many of you have never asked! Come on, now, don’t be shy–make a joyful noise unto the Lord.

Again, ‘What a Friend We Have in Jesus’

This is one of my favorite hymns. I love to whistle it, as loud as I can, when I’m walking alone through a quiet part of town. I mean, if this hymn doesn’t stir your heart, I don’t know what will.

So here’s a beautiful rendition of a beautiful hymn, sung by The Church of God–and who knew so many people could sing a capella and have it turn out right? Written in 1855, What a Friend We Have in Jesus is still a well-beloved hymn today.

Encore, ‘Leaning on the Everlasting Arms’

Not a bad way to start your day–this high-spirited rendition, by The Church of God, of Leaning on the Everlasting Arms.

I first heard this hymn in Night of the Hunter, sung by Lillian Gish, and I never forgot it.
