‘He Will Hold Me Fast’

Here’s another one I never heard before–He Will Hold Me Fast, performed by Keith and Kristyn Getty. The background of calm seas and gentle waves, God the Father’s handiwork, moves me more than I know how to say.


‘Lest Ye Sorrow’

This is I Thessalonians 4:13-18 set to music, and performed by the kids at Fountainview Academy. “Wherefore comfort one another with these words…” Yes–St. Paul has words of comfort for us. The Holy Spirit gave them to him, to give to us.


By Request, ‘10,000 Reasons’

Susan asked for this one, Ten Thousand Reasons–performed by Matt Redman, another hymn sung by a little child with the voice of an angel. “Bless the Lord, O my soul” is a prayer worth praying every day.


Michael W. Smith, ‘Hallelujah’

Sometimes it seems all Michael W. Smith has to do is play the first few chords, and his audience will do the rest. Here the audience joins him in singing Hallelujah. I wonder what it would be like, to be at one of these events.


By Request, ‘Above All’

Joshua requested this, Above All, performed by David Doring on the panflute–plus lyrics, if you want to sing along.

If you’re new here, we take hymn requests every day. So if you have a favorite hymn you’d like to share with others, just leave a comment anywhere, and we’ll do the rest.


Hymn Request/Sneak Preview, ‘I Stand Amazed’

This hymn had only been up on youtube for an hour this morning, when Susan spotted it; so hey, everybody, you are now among the first to see this video–I Stand Amazed, by the Norton Hall Band. I’ll be surprised if it doesn’t have at least 10,000 views by the end of this day.


By Request, ‘Whispering Hope’

Suggested by Erlene: Whispering Hope, by Jim Reeves (what a mellow voice he had!). And it’s so infernally hot here today, I kind of love the snow imagery.

Y’know, some of you have been here for years without ever requesting a hymn. You know I wind up repeating myself, when the hymn choice is all left up to me.

If you’re new–well, we post one or two hymns every day, you can request as many as you please, and if you have a hymn you’d like to share, just “Leave a Reply” or comment anywhere, and we’ll do the rest.


By Request, ‘Halleluyah’

Erlene requested this–Halleluyah, by the Isaacs: performed (I think) in Jerusalem. A lot of the lyrics are in Hebrew–going back to our roots, there–so I couldn’t understand them; but then I post a lot of Welsh hymns and I don’t understand those lyrics, either. It’s the spirit that counts!


By Request, ‘Do It Again’

I think this is Allison’s first hymn request. If you’re a regular visitor here, you know her as “Weavingword,” a good friend to this blog. So here you go, Allison–Do It Again, by Elevation Worship. I pray it brightens up your day.


By Request, ‘I Know God Put ‘Em There’

Erlene’s been a bit under the weather this week, so I hope this song that she requested will make her feel better: I Know God Put ‘Em There, by Carroll Roberson. Truly, God’s handiwork is all around us, all the time; and its message is, “God is nigh.” Always.
