    i dunno the name of this song, but it goes something like this :

    You are the rock of my salvation,
    you are the strength of my life,
    you are my joy and my inspiration ,
    lord unto u will i cry
    i believe in you
    believe in you
    for your faithful love to me
    u have been my help
    in times of need
    lord unto u will i cleave....

    There's no way I could rank these but my absolute favorites are:

    I'll Meet You in the Morning
    How Firm a Foundation
    Old Rugged Cross
    Come Ye Christians Be Committed
    Shall We Gather at the River
    I'll Fly Away

    I just learned to play How Firm a Foundation on the mountain dulcimer, and am now working on a couple of the others.

    As a side note, does anyone have an arrangement of I'll Meet You in the Morning that doesn't use shape notes? Maybe one that's just the melody?

    Joshua

    P.S. You didn't know we liberals listened to gospel hymns, did ya?

    So CJoshuaV, you are a "liberal' eh? In what sence of the word, may I ask? ;)

    Commend your musical expertise with the mountain dulcimer! [​IMG]

    B.J. Well, it alls depends on what company I'm keeping. I do have some baptist colleagues who think I'm a tad conservative, but they are all people that most of the folks on this board would think come from Mars. The short answer is that I'm one of those higher criticism, Alliance of Baptists, pro-gay baptist clergypeople that conservative and fundamentalist baptists love to complain about.

    My Christology and worship preferenes, however, are actually pretty conservative. Go figure.

    Oh, and I wouldn't call what I do on a dulcimer "expertise." I highly recommend the mountain dulcimer for those who are muscially challenged. It is very easy to play, and offers instant gratification.

    Joshua,
    Is the dulcimer really that easy to play? I love the sound of it, and I definitely would fall under the category of the "musically challeneged." :D

    Tom,

    It's easier than easy. There's a place in Townsend, just before you enter to park/Cade's Cove that sells dulcimers and dulcimer music books. I picked up a copy of The Dulcimer Hymn Book (published by Mel Bay) there, but actually bought my dulcimer online.

    Within ten minutes of experimenting in the store, I was (haltingly) playing my first song. The second day after my dulcimer arrived, I was actually playing.

    If you decide that you want to play chords (which most casual players do not) the dulcimer becomes more complicated, but only slightly more soe. All of the dulcimer books include the fret numbers to tell you where to place your thumb while you play. With only the tiniest bit of practice, you'll be amazed at what you can do.

    Joshua

    Wow! Thanks, Joshua. I may have to check this out. I'm looking to add something musical to my hobby list, and this may be just what the doctor ordered. My ailing back and neck prevents me from my first love (Golf) so I've been looking for something musical to go a little more left-brain. But don't tell everyone about this being too easy. I want to impress people :D

    Tom,

    Drop me an e-mail and I'll fill you in some more on my dulcimer experience and research. It's become one of my new favorite topics.

    Joshua

    P.S. One of the secrets is not telling your listeners how easy it is! ;)

    Could someone point me to a good place to hear some hymns. As a new christian I am trying to lean the songs, but it hard to learn when you are making a joyful noise. Now way would I call what I do singing.

    NewBeliever, there are several places, where you can listen to Gospel Hymns, as well as read music evaluations. See the following links (I am sure there are others):

    Cyber Hymnal: http://www.cyberhymnal.org/

    WMUU.com Radio (by Bob Jones University): http://www.wmuu.com/main.asp

    Music Evaluation site: http://hometown.aol.com/ats0922/index.html

    Yes. The constant focus on one's own errant beliefs betrays the anthrocentric theology of the lberal, as well the innate knowledge that they are indeed, denying the Law of God. (II Tim 4:3,4)

    BTW, my favorite hymn is Ode to Joy (which has been violently shanghaied by secular marketeers, from everything from Auto sales to movie rentals!) :eek:

    :eek: , but I read II Tim 4:3,4 and I agree with you.

    Sorry [​IMG] It simply means "man-centered" rathern than Christ-centered (Christocentric). [​IMG]

    Actually, I'm confident that my theology is Christocentric. I think that fundamentalism is far more anthropocentric than liberal Christianity.

    Joshua

    P.S. In all seriousness, though, the thread really is about gospel hymns. We all know I'm a liberal and Chris is not. Anyone who follows the other threads doesn't need to rehash those arguments.

    :cool:
