By Request, ‘Better Than Life’

Requested by Joshua, Better Than Life, by Acappella–echoes of the Psalms, and plenty of them.

‘He Will Hold Me Fast’

I thought you might like this one from the Norton Hall Band, at Southern Seminary–He Will Hold Me Fast.

By Request, ‘More Precious Than Gold’

Back from the vet’s just in time to take this hymn request from Joshua–More Precious Than Gold, by Acappella. If the lyrics sound familiar to you, they should: they’re from Psalm 19, “The heavens declare the glory of God…”

Peep is cross now, but the vet thinks she seems pretty healthy. We have to wait for lab work to know for sure. Thank you, everybody, for your prayers.

‘In Christ Alone’

Yes, I know I’ve posted this several times before; but I have a desire to hear it again: In Christ Alone, by Keith and Kristyn Getty. I can never forget how the editors refused to add it to the Presbyterian Church USA hymnal unless they removed the line, “The wrath of God was satisfied.” Go-along-to-get-along theology at its finest.

By Request, ‘He Looked Beyond My Fault’

Requested by Erlene: He Looked Beyond My Fault and Saw My Need, sung by The Hoppers. I had never heard this hymn before, but of course I knew the melody–as Danny Boy.

‘Thy Word’

Thy word is a lamp unto my feet, and a light unto my path.  Psalm 119:105

This was the first non-traditional worship song I ever fell in love with: Thy Word, by Amy Grant. Usually I opt for classic hymns; but I’m sure this one’s on its way to becoming a classic.

By Request, ‘In My Father’s House’

Requested by Erlene (see how easy it is?)–In My Father’s House, by Carroll Roberson. “In my father’s house are many mansions: if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you.” (John 14:2)

By Request, ‘A Moment of Time’

Requested by Erlene–A Moment of Time, by Carroll Roberson.

If you’re new here, we take hymn requests and all you have to do, to make one, is leave a comment anywhere on the blog. We’ll do the rest.

By Request, ‘Everything We Need’

And we have another hymn by Acappella, requested (and provided!) by Joshua–Everything We Need.

Shout-out to Joshua: When are we going to get another song by Joshua and Jeremy?

By Request, ‘As the Deer’

As the hart panteth after the water brooks, so panteth my soul after thee, O God. (KJV)

Requested by Erlene, As the Deer Panteth for the Water–and I have no idea who’s singing it, but it’s quite beautiful. Inspired by Psalm 42:1 (see above).
