The Beautiful Garden of Prayer

This is one of the Hymns best loved which we use at Nursing Home ministry. The best hymns to sing are the ones that people will sing along with and this is a sweet and easy sing with a deep and personal message!


Hymn: 'Jesu, Joy of Men's Desiring'

We usually hear this beautiful hymn around Christmastime, but there’s nothing wrong with hearing it now. In fact, after a week of watching Satan’s vandals trash our civilization, I need it now. 47 more words


'Christ for the World We Sing'

Let’s start our Sunday with a classic hymn, here sung not as a performance, but as part of a church service. This hymn, by Felice DiGiardini (1716-1796), may be more familiar to you as “Come Thou Almighty King”–same music, different lyrics. 63 more words


Hymn: 'Immortal, Invisible, God Only Wise'

The opening words of this classic hymn are from Paul’s first Epistle to Timothy, Chapter 1.

The thing about Paul’s epistles is, they’re full of real people. 121 more words


Hymn: 'Rejoice, Give Thanks, and Sing'

If I haven’t bollixed up this video, here, in this performance of a classic hymn, the unaided human voice is used as a musical instrument to praise God. 13 more words


Hymn: 'Wonderful Words of Life'

Here’s another one from my Sunday school days, if I can get the video to work. Suddenly I’m having trouble with that.

“Wonderful Words of Life” is another old-fashioned hymn that only needs a piano to play it and a voice to sing it. 92 more words


Hymn: 'O, Worship the King'

This is another one of those old hymns that I love. I passed up what sounded like a Sergio Mendes & the Brasil 66 version in favor of normal people singing, with a piano. 42 more words
