    Go forth my Children with my blessing

    The Church's one Foundation
    Sent forth By God's Blessing
    Praise to the Lord, the Almighty

    I love singing the Gather song, THE LONGER I SERVE HIM. I sing it both as a praise and a testimony.
    The longer serve Him, the sweeter He grows,
    The more that I love Him, more love He bestows;
    Each day is like heaven, my heart overflows,
    The longer I serve Him, the sweeter He grows.

    Be Thou My Vision is my favorite [​IMG] I love Ortega's version...which is pretty much just singing it normal but without music for the most part. It's a beautiful song however it's sung.

    Jesus, Lover of My Soul.

    Other refuge have I none, hangs my helpless soul on Thee;
    Leave, ah! leave me not alone, still support and comfort me.
    All my trust on Thee is stayed, all my help from Thee I bring;
    Cover my defenseless head with the shadow of Thy wing.

    A Mighty Fortress Is Our God

    Come, Holy Spirit, God and Lord!

    Amazing Grace


    But for us fights the Valiant One,
    Whom God Himself elected.
    Ask ye, Who is this?
    Jesus Christ it is.
    Of Sabbath Lord,
    and there’s none other God;
    He holds the field forever.

    Amen Gina re: Be Thou My Vision. I love the version on "The Mandate" CD "All For Jesus". Come to think of it, I love every version I have ever heard..except that shambles that Phil Keaggy did a few years ago. Great guitar player sure, but I'll never forgive him for that one :mad: :mad:

    Amen rsr re: Jesus, Lover of My Soul. Charles Wesley is one of my top 50 favourite writers ;) ;) A few more from Charles: And Can It Be, Christ the Lord is risen today, Come Thou Long Expected Jesus, Hark the Herald Angels Sing, Rejoice the Lord Is King, Ye Servants of God, O for a Thousand Tongues to Sing, Love Divine All Loves Excelling...

    Will mention a couple from Isaac Watts while about it [​IMG] The awesome When I Survey the Wondrous Cross. Alas and Did My Savior Bleed?, I’m not ashamed to own my Lord, Jesus shall reign where’er the sun, Our God our help in ages past...

    I have loved Crown Him With Many Crowns since I was about 8 or so. I will have to twist some arms at Church and get them to do all 9 verses one day (See Crown Him With Many Crowns thread buried in the Music forum somewhere [​IMG] )

    I just wish I could play all these great hymns the way they deserve to be played. Oh well, one day [​IMG]

    I have a little song written by a friend called

    "First Look"--

    Goes something like this

    Everyday I think of Heaven and the glory waiting there/I vision such wonder, nothing here can quiet compare/Scenes of rarest beauty will stretch as far as eye can see/but my eyes will turn toward Jesus/Its my King I want to see

    OH, that first look/Halelujah behold the lamb
    Oh, that first touch/I'll hold His nail scarred hand
    Oh, those first words/will be well done, come on in
    Oh, that first look/it will never, ever end

    My wife and I sing it every now and then! Beautiful! There's another verse goes with it--but I have it reserved in my mind

    Lots and lots of favorites--too many to count!! to list!!

    your Southern Baptist preachin', singin' buddy,
    Blackbird

    God Gave the Song
    Wonderful Grace of Jesus
