'Jesus, Lover of My Soul'

This is from the Hymn Club’s “Redemption Hymnal”–Jesus, Lover of My Soul by Charles Wesley. The youtube page doesn’t say who performs it, but to me it sounds like Maddy Prior and the Carnival Band. 21 more words

'This Is My Father's World' (Joslin Grove Choral Society)

I love this hymn, This Is My Father’s World, and I love this no-frills performance of it by the Joslin Grove Choral Society. Words to hold on to: “Yet though the wrong seems oft so strong, God is the ruler yet.” Not since World War II has the wrong been as strong as it is now. 9 more words

Encore: 'Gloria in Excelsis Deo'

Yes, I know I posted this hymn yesterday: but today’s encore is special to my fellowsoldier Evelyn, who loves this rendition of it by Libera. Evelyn and I go back a long way. 47 more words

Go, go, go! 'A Mighty Fortress'

Go ahead and try not to be moved by this! A Mighty Fortress is Our God, performed by the students at Fountainview Academy–and in the background an image of the Coliseum, scene of human sacrifice to the false god of the Roman state: overcome and brought to nothing by Jesus Christ the Son of God. 12 more words
