Logos Speaks shared a wonderful and interesting article on worship music. While there are some (relatively) modern Christian songs I love, I am partial to the old hymns. It’s what I grew up on, what “my church” continues to sing (with actual hymnals) and what I teach my children.
Thanks to Lee Duigon for posting this choir on his blog, and to his reader whom requested it (though a different hymn).
I love boys choirs and I love this song. I heard it actually isn’t about the birth of Christ, but rather His SECOND coming. Maranatha!
Get ready to cry. Incredible.
Step back in time to when the best instruments of praise were the human voice accompanied by a sincere heart.
I love the old hymns, and this one is among my top five, though it is certainly difficult to choose favorites.
The melody is certainly pleasing, but the lyrics are what are so special and beautiful! I cannot sing it without smiling 🙂
I dare say most Christians know the first verse of the hymn “Holy, Holy, Holy”. I want to focus on the THIRD verse today.
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 power, in love and purity. (hymnsite.com)
Though the darkness may envelope me, HE IS.
Though the battle rages about me and the armor feels too heavy, HE IS.
HE still sits on the throne. The Blood still redeems. The Word still conquers. The Spirit still comforts.
Though my spirit feels overwhelmed, my body fails me and my mind deceives me….I AM that I AM still reigns and retains all power, might and glory forever and forever.
