'Little Is Much When God Is In It'

I’ve never heard this hymn before–Little Is Much When God Is In It–and as I write this post, it’s yesterday: this morning I’m gathering dust in the eye doctor’s waiting room. 24 more words


'Abide With Me'

Henry Lyte wrote Abide With Me as he lay dying with tuberculosis, in 1847. He lived only three weeks longer. But what a way to take your last bow. 12 more words


New Name

Once a month on Sunday afternoons some of the churches used to get together for the Sunday Hymn Sing. The men sat on one side and the women on the other not because of any kind of segregation but so we could sing our parts. 64 more words

'Light of the World'--Plus Prayer Request for Me

You’ll pardon me for indulging in one of my very favorite hymns–Light of the World, by Charles Wesley, sung by Maddy Prior and the Carnival Band. 83 more words


'Immortal, Invisible, God Only Wise'

This is the hymn that was in my mind at bedtime, still here this morning–Immortal, Invisible, God Only Wise. I can hardly believed we sometimes sang this at assembly in high school: better times. 10 more words


'How Firm a Foundation'

In my church this hymn was sung to the melody that usually goes with O Come, All Ye Faithful. That church is gone: the building remains, but the spirit is gone out of it. 28 more words


'When the Roll Is Called Up Yonder'

When the Roll Is Called Up Yonder … “I’ll be there,” says the hymn (written in 1893 by James Black). So hope we all!

Performed by the kids at Fountainview Academy.
