Erlene requested this one, The King Is Coming. I opted for this version by the Heritage Singers because the introductory photo caught my eye.
In my regular daily Bible reading, I happen to be in Daniel and Revelation right now, so the hymn has an added zing for me.
Linda requested this hymn, Blessed Be the Lord God Almighty, by the Maranatha Singers. I want to go back outside now and work some more on my book, and there’s nothing like a hymn to wash the collidge nooze out of my head. Make a joyful noise unto the Lord.
Erlene thought we’d enjoy this hymn, It’s Beginning to Rain. It puts me in mind of Joel 2:28-29.
And it shall come to pass afterward, that I will pour out my spirit upon all flesh; and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, your old men shall dream dreams, your young men shall see visions: And also upon the servants and upon the handmaids in those days will I pour out my spirit.
A lot of people love this arrangement, by King’s Kaleidoscope, of In Christ Alone. See what you think. I love the lyrics.
Here’s another one from Kings Kaleidoscope, Jesus Paid It All.
As my father lay dying, he grieved for sins he’d committed in his life. My wife took his hand and told him, “They’re all paid for: Jesus paid the bill. Paid in full.” And he was comforted.
My friend “Ohio Chess Fan” posted this on my chess page today. Daily and Vincent: “I will know my Savior when I come to Him By the Mark where the nails went in.”
There are so many ways to make a joyful noise unto the Lord. This is one of them.
Have you heard this hymn before? Give to Our God Immortal Praise, here sung by choir and congregation at the Shenandoah Christian Music Camp. This is the first I’ve ever heard this hymn: very nice.
I’m posting this again because I need it, and I think I might not be the only one.
This young woman praises God with “broken lungs,” cystic fibrosis, an affliction she must deal with every day. It has only deepened her love for her Creator and Savior.
She is an example for us all.
This one’s from Susan: Peace in Christ, sung by 5-year-old Claire Ryanna Crosby and her father, Dave. Five years old!
It’s not often I get two hymn requests on the same day. As you can see, I’ve posted them both. So, if you’re new to this audience and you’d like us to post a favorite hymn or worship song, don’t be bashful, just “Leave a Reply” and leave the posting to us.
I’ve never done this before, run the same hymn two days in a row. But this one, All Glory Be to Christ, moves me so deeply, I just don’t want to let go of it. Thing is, I don’t want to let go of Jesus.
If you can sing along without your eyes tearing and your throat choking up, my hat is off to you.
