Please enjoy these peaceful piano hymns by Jim Engel!

1 Praise ye the LORD. Praise ye the name of the LORD; praise Him, O ye servants of the LORD.

Ye that stand in the house of the LORD, in the courts of the house of our God.

Praise the LORD; for the LORD is good: sing praises unto His name; for it is pleasant.

– Psalm 135:1-3

A Mighty Fortress is Our God

“The LORD is my rock, and my fortress, and my deliverer; my God, my strength, in whom I will trust; my buckler, and the horn of my salvation, and my high tower.” (Psalm 18:2)

– Lyrics –


  1. A mighty fortress is our God, a bulwark never failing;
    Our helper He, amid the flood of mortal ills prevailing:
    For still our ancient foe doth seek to work us woe;
    His craft and pow’r are great, and, armed with cruel hate,
    On earth is not his equal.
  2. Did we in our own strength confide, our striving would be losing,
    Were not the right Man on our side, the Man of God’s own choosing:
    Dost ask who that may be? Christ Jesus, it is He;
    Lord Sabaoth, His Name, from age to age the same,
    And He must win the battle.
  3. And though this world, with devils filled, should threaten to undo us,
    We will not fear, for God hath willed His truth to triumph through us;
    The Prince of Darkness grim, we tremble not for him;
    His rage we can endure, for lo, his doom is sure,
    One little word shall fell him.
  4. That word above all earthly pow’rs, no thanks to them, abideth;
    The Spirit and the gifts are ours through Him Who with us sideth;
    Let goods and kindred go, this mortal life also;
    The body they may kill: God’s truth abideth still,
    His kingdom is forever.

He Will Hold Me Fast

37 All that the Father giveth Me shall come to Me; and him that cometh to Me I will in no wise cast out. 

– John 6:37 KJV

– Lyrics –


When I fear my faith will fail, Christ will hold me fast;
When the tempter would prevail, He will hold me fast.
I could never keep my hold through life’s fearful path;
For my love is often cold; He must hold me fast.

He will hold me fast, He will hold me fast;
For my Saviour loves me so, He will hold me fast.

Those He saves are His delight, Christ will hold me fast;
Precious in his holy sight, He will hold me fast.
He’ll not let my soul be lost; His promises shall last;
Bought by Him at such a cost, He will hold me fast.

For my life He bled and died, Christ will hold me fast;
Justice has been satisfied; He will hold me fast.
Raised with Him to endless life, He will hold me fast
‘Till our faith is turned to sight, When He comes at last!

– Keith & Kristyn Getty

‘Low in the Grave He Lay’ — Lee Duigon

Until I started playing it, I didn’t realize this was one of my favorite hymns, too; but I always knew it as Up from the Grave He Arose. You Favorite Hymns continues with Low in the Grave He Lay, sung by the Kingdom Quartet.

‘Low in the Grave He Lay’ — Lee Duigon

This is a post from Lee Duigon’s blog. I hope this hymn will be a blessing to you!

14 For if we believe that Jesus died and rose again, even so them also which sleep in Jesus will God bring with Him.

– 1 Thessalonians 4:14 KJV

For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures;

And that He was buried, and that He rose again the third day according to the scriptures:

– 1 Corinthians 15:3-4 KJV

Beautiful and Uplifting Gospel Hymns – Alan Jackson

Here are some great hymns sung by Alan Jackson from his album, Precious Memories.

“Make a joyful noise unto the Lord, all ye lands.

Serve the Lord with gladness: come before His presence with singing.

Know ye that the Lord He is God: it is He that hath made us, and not we ourselves; we are His people, and the sheep of His pasture.

Enter into His gates with thanksgiving, and into His courts with praise: be thankful unto Him, and bless His name.

For the Lord is good; His mercy is everlasting; and His truth endureth to all generations.”

Psalm 100

To Be a Pilgrim

“Thou therefore, my son, be strong in the grace that is in Christ Jesus. And the things that thou hast heard of me among many witnesses, the same commit thou to faithful men, who shall be able to teach others also. Thou therefore endure hardness, as a good soldier of Jesus Christ.” – 2 Timothy 2:1-3

– Lyrics –


He who would valiant be ’gainst all disaster,
Let him in constancy follow the Master.
There’s no discouragement shall make him once relent
His first avowed intent to be a pilgrim.

Who so beset him round with dismal stories
Do but themselves confound – his strength the more is.
No foes shall stay his might; though he with giants fight,
He will make good his right to be a pilgrim.

Since, Lord, Thou dost defend us with Thy Spirit,
We know we at the end, shall life inherit.
Then fancies flee away! I’ll fear not what men say,
I’ll labor night and day to be a pilgrim.

John Bunyan 

(The lyrics are different than the ones sung in the video.)

(Lyrics from SongAndPraise.org.)

Crown Him With Many Crowns

11 For it is written, As I live, saith the Lord, every knee shall bow to Me, and every tongue shall confess to God.

12 So then every one of us shall give account of himself to God.

13 Let us not therefore judge one another any more: but judge this rather, that no man put a stumblingblock or an occasion to fall in his brother’s way.

– Romans 14:11-13
