‘Sitting at the Feet of Jesus’

Back to Your Favorite Hymns with Sitting at the Feet of Jesus, by the Gaither Vocal Band.

We’d like to see a couple dozen more hymns in the hymn-cart, so please feel free to suggest your favorites.

‘Oh, I Want to See Him’

Here’s another one of Your Favorite Hymns from the hymn-cart–Oh, I Want to See Him, by the Blythe Family.

And remember–the day after Thanksgiving, our Second Annual Christmas Carol Contest starts!

‘Faith Unlocks the Door’

And here’s one from the cart, Your Favorite Hymns–Faith Unlocks the Door, sung by the Old Friends Quartet. That last single note is really something.

‘For All the Saints’

I’d never heard this one before; but that’s why it’s “Your Favorite Hymns” and not just mine: in this case, one of Phoebe’s. For All the Saints, performed by the students at Fountainview Academy–and how they got all those musicians onto that raft without anybody falling in, well, that’s something to ponder.

‘Leaving All to Follow Jesus’

Requested by SlimJim, I chose this unusual rendition of the hymn, Leaving All to Follow Jesus–unusual in that it’s such an old recording, maybe from as long as 90 years ago. It’s from an album called “Times Ain’t Like They Used to Be.”

Now we’ve just about emptied the Your Favorite Hymns cart, and some of you have never requested a hymn. Well, you don’t have to, of course–but why not? Help refill the cart.

‘Here We Are’

Your Favorite Hymns continues with Here We Are, by Dallas Holm. I couldn’t resist the background sets, God’s handiwork.

The hymn-cart needs filling again; so if there’s a hymn or two, or half a dozen of them, that you’d like to share here, just let us know by leaving a comment anywhere. I read them all.

‘I Then Shall Live’

The music Sibelius wrote for Finlandia has served for several hymns, including this one–I Then Shall Live, sung by the Faither Vocal Band, flavored with photos of God’s handiwork. Looking at these, it’s no wonder that when God surveyed His finished creation, He pronounced it very good.

‘He Hideth My Soul’

You can’t beat this combination–a beach in Hawaii, a classic hymn by Fanny Crosby, and students from Fountainview Academy to perform it: He Hideth My Soul.

As of today, I need a few dozen hymns to fill the cart with Your Favorite Hymns. So step right up, don’t be shy!

‘Wonderful Words of Life’

I love this hymn, it takes me back to Sunday school: Wonderful Words of Life, sung here by the Dallas Christian Concert Choir.

Hey! The hymn cart’s almost empty! We want to keep a good supply on hand so we can post Your Favorite Hymns every day. So if there’s a hymn or two, or half a dozen, that you’d like to share–just let us know.

‘Day by Day’

Written in 1865, sung here by the Antrim Mennonite Choir, Day by Day is illuminated by these gorgeous photos of God the Father’s handiwork.

And it’s time to load the cart with Your Favorite Hymns again! We’d love to get some hymn requests from readers who haven’t made any before.
