By Request, ‘Bind Us Together, Lord’

“Someone”–Wordpress is at it again–requested this worship song, Bind Us Together, Lord. This is the first time I’ve heard it. It was published in 1974.

The hymn shop’s open all day, folks–don’t be bashful about requesting a hymn. You know we need them.

By Request, ‘I Asked the Lord’

Requested by Erlene, I Asked the Lord, sung by Carroll Roberson. There are many renditions from which to choose, but I’m guessing this one is the one she wanted.

Open all day for hymn requests, folks–don’t go to bed wishing you’d made one.

‘In the Name of Jesus, We Have the Victory’

No hymn requests this morning, so I offer this–a bluegrass version of In the Name of Jesus, We Have the Victory, produced by Shiloh Worship Music. Honest, it was the first hymn to pop into my head today.

By Request, ‘The Master’s Call’

I really have to get back to work on my book–but first this, The Master’s Call: sung by Carroll Roberson, requested by Erlene.

(Where does he find these backgrounds? Beautiful!)

By Request, ‘Noah’

Thanks to Michele Dumas for requesting this–Noah, by the Jubilaires: just what we needed this morning. Michele wrote down all the lyrics in her comment on “One Cat’s Zoomies, posted yesterday.

The quartet: John Jennings, Orville Brooks, George McFadden, and Ted Brooks.

‘Thy Word Is a Lamp Unto My Feet’

(Gee, Lee, you’re kind of late today! Yes, Grasshopper: freakin’ computer being very fractious…)

I’ve finally got a hymn posted–Thy Word Is a Lamp Unto My Feet, by Amy Grant and Michael W. Smith. Yes, I know I posted it not too long ago. With all the stuff going on around here, I’m lucky my pants aren’t on backwards.

Encore: ‘We Are Not Alone’

“Sing louder!” the lady said. Well, all right. This was the first hymn to pop into my head this morning–and the first to come up on YouTube. We Are Not Alone–coming to us from southern India. Excuse me for posting it again: I think I need it.

By Request, ‘I Surrender All’

We’re so glad to have Erlene with us again, and happy to post this hymn she’s requested–I Surrender All, by Carroll Roberson.

Plenty of room in the hymn shop today, folks… and it’s raining outside, so come on in.

By Request, ‘In the Presence of Jehovah’

Requested by Erlene, sung by Daywind: In the Presence of Jehovah. And wouldn’t it be nice to float upon those clouds up there, without the slightest chance of falling?

‘Thy Word Is a Lamp Unto My Feet’

I fell in love with this hymn the first time I heard it on Christian radio, sometime last century. No one sings it better than Amy Grant–Thy Word is a Lamp Unto My Feet, Psalm 119:105.
