I wish I could hear a million people singing this–don’t you? This is the hymn that’s been in my mind since last night, so it’s time to let it take wing: To God Be the Glory. Performed at the Middlesborough Baptist Church as part of “The NBA Big Sing.” Earth, sky, and trees provided by God the Father. Turn up the volume!

How Great Thou Art (Ron & Kelly)

 

In this video, Ron & Kelly plays “How Great Thou Art” flawlessly and beautifully on the piano and violin. Please enjoy this peaceful God-glorifying music.

Lyrics of “How Great Thou Art” —–

[Verse 1]
O Lord my God, when I in awesome wonder
Consider all the worlds Thy hands have made
I see the stars, I hear the rolling thunder
Thy power throughout the universe displayed

[Refrain]
Then sings my soul, my Saviour God, to Thee
How great Thou art, how great Thou art
Then sings my soul, my Saviour God, to Thee
How great Thou art, how great Thou art!

[Verse 2]
When through the woods, and forest glades I wander
And hear the birds sing sweetly in the trees
When I look down, from lofty mountain grandeur
And see the brook, and feel the gentle breeze

[Refrain]
Then sings my soul, my Saviour God, to Thee
How great Thou art, how great Thou art
Then sings my soul, my Saviour God, to Thee
How great Thou art, how great Thou art!

[Verse 3]
And when I think, that God, His Son not sparing
Sent Him to die, I scarce can take it in
That on the Cross, my burden gladly bearing
He bled and died to take away my sin

[Refrain]
Then sings my soul, my Saviour God, to Thee
How great Thou art, how great Thou art
Then sings my soul, my Saviour God, to Thee
How great Thou art, how great Thou art!

[Verse 4]
When Christ shall come, with shout of acclamation
And take me home, what joy shall fill my heart
Then I shall bow, in humble adoration
And then proclaim: “My God, how great Thou art!”

[Refrain]
Then sings my soul, my Saviour God, to Thee
How great Thou art, how great Thou art
Then sings my soul, my Saviour God, to Thee
How great Thou art, how great Thou art!

 

God Rest Ye Merry, Gentlemen

Wow! It’s December now! It’s the season to celebrate Christmas, the holiday to remember Christ’s birth. I would like to post this Christmas hymn sung by GLAD, which is “God Rest Ye Merry, Gentlemen“, meaning “God make you mighty, gentlemen”.

(This was my first Christmas carol request for the Christmas Carol Contest on Lee Duigon’s blog.)

Here’s one with lyrics:

 

 

Happy Thanksgiving!

thank
— Thanksgiving 2018 ~ November 22nd —

Today in America it’s Thanksgiving Day!

It is the time to say thank you to God for all the things he has so graciously given us! We must thank God for the food we eat everyday, our families, and our lives! God made us, and we are His people. We must always be thankful to Him, not just on Thanksgiving, but on every day of our lives!

Thank You God for making us, for nourishing us, for our families, and for everything in this life! Above all, Thank You for the Lord Jesus Christ! In Jesus’ name, amen!

Here is a hymn praising God for the blessings which He always gives us!

 

 

Amazing Grace

I posted this hymn a few days ago, but I want to post it again! Why not?

Amazing Grace“, sung by American country singer Alan Jackson.

Alan Jackson – Amazing Grace

Lyrics:              (from YouTube)

Amazing grace! How sweet the sound
that saved a wretch like me!
I once was lost, but now am found;
was blind, but now I see.

‘Twas grace that taught my heart to fear,
and grace my fears relieved;
how precious did that grace appear
the hour I first believed.

Through many dangers, toils, and snares,
I have already come;
’tis grace hath brought me safe thus far,
and grace will lead me home.

When we’ve been there ten thousand years,
bright shining as the sun,
we’ve no less days to sing God’s praise
than when we first begun.

Amazing grace! How sweet the sound
that saved a wretch like me!
I once was lost, but now am found;
was blind, but now I see.

 

 

Holy, Holy, Holy!

 

This is one of my favorite hymns – “Holy, Holy, Holy”, sung by Steve Green. The hymn was written by Reginald Heber. God is infinitely holy, and we must serve Him and remain faithful to Him to the end!

Lyrics: (from LyricsWiki)

Holy, holy, holy!
Lord God Almighty!
Early in the morning
Our song shall rise to thee
Holy, holy, holy!
Merciful and mighty!
God in three persons
Blessed trinity!

Holy, holy, holy!
All the saints adore thee
Casting down their golden crowns
Around the glassy sea
Cherubim and seraphim
Falling down before thee
Which wert and art
And evermore shalt be

Holy, holy, holy!
Though the darkness hide thee
Though the eye of sinful man
Thy glory may not see
Only Thou art holy
There is none beside thee
Perfect in pow’r
In love and purity.

Holy, holy, holy!
Lord God Almighty!
All thy works shall praise thy name
In earth and sky and sea
Holy, holy, holy!
Merciful and mighty
God in three persons
Blessed trinity!
