‘Sweet Hour of Prayer’

Here’s another hymn a lot of us grew up with, and heard around the house–Sweet Hour of Prayer. This version is by the Vagle Brothers. Gorgeous background sets by God the Father, maker of heaven and earth.

‘Near the Cross’

Let’s start our day with a hymn by Fanny Crosby–Near the Cross, sung by the Vagle Brothers.

One thing about posting all these hymns you’ve asked for: I finally learn the names of hymns I’ve heard for years and years without knowing them.

‘Trust and Obey’

Another Sunday school classic, here sung by the Vagle Brothers–Trust and Obey, with background sets by God the Father.

‘Sweet Hour of Prayer’

I am totally conked out this morning–I don’t know why. The heat, maybe.

Well, here’s a nice, sweet hymn from a long time ago, I remember my mother and my aunts humming it as they went about their housework: Sweet Hour of Prayer. Sung by the Vagle Brothers.

‘Trust and Obey’

One of my favorite hymns from Sunday school, Trust and Obey–this is for Evelyn, lyrics and all. I don’t know how many Vagle Brothers there are, but they do make a nice sound together–and oh! the background scenery. God’s handiwork is always present, always a gift.

‘Sweet Hour of Prayer’

We all need the Lord to carry us, sometimes. It’s raining again today, my wife is sick, I fear for my sister and a couple of dear friends, the Left is sinking its fangs into my country… and if I couldn’t pray, all this stuff would crush me flat. What do you say, folks, to prayers all around? On and off all day.

Sweet Hour of Prayer, written in 1845 and sung here by the Vagle Brothers, was one of my mother’s favorite hymns.
