Requested by Lydia: The Love of God, performed by the kids from Fountainview Academy on a visit to the Ford Farm in Eureka, California.
If you’re new here, we take hymn requests. If you have a favorite hymn you’d like to share, just leave a comment anywhere, and we’ll do the rest.
The Love of God is over 100 years old–by Frederick Lehman, 1917–but I’d never heard it until today. We have it performed by Nathan and Lyle plus family members, with lyrics and chords so you can sing or strum along. A lovely old hymn, really.
This hymn is 100 years old this year–The Love of God, from 1917, played and sung by Nathan (autoharp) and Lyle (guitar) and family, in Denton County, Texas.
The times are evil, as we know, but one of the things we can always do is this: sing louder.
I don’t know if I’ve already used this hymn or not, but it’s the one I wanted today–The Love of God, performed by Nathan and Lyle and family members whose names I haven’t learned yet. A hundred years old, this hymn is. May it fortify us in God’s spirit against the evil news of these times.
Let’s join Nathan (auto-harp) and Lyle (guitar) and some of their family members for an old gospel song from 1917, The Love of God.
(See, Lee? It’s okay to play hymns on something other than an organ or a piano.)
Nice way to start the day.
And remember, all of you out there in the world–you can always request a hymn, if you’d like to see it posted here. Not many are taking advantage of this ongoing offer–so step right up.
Some hymn requests came in overnight, and I will get to them, never fear. But let’s start off the day with The Love of God, with Nate and Lyle and some of their family and friends.
Is this great, or what?
Because if anything is going to carry us through this evil age, it’s God’s love.
