Christian Camp Songs & Chorus Hymns #12

Christian Camp Songs & Chorus Hymns

I spent many years in my late teens and early twenties working at Christian Camps.  I even met my husband at a Christian camp.  These wonderful memories of great experiences make Christian camp songs very special to me.

On top of featuring an old hymn each month in what I call "Old Fashioned Sunday Hymn Sing" - I will also be featuring a chorus hymn every month - ENJOY!
There is a little bit of confusion or discrepancy with this featured hymn today in regards to the author/composer.  In my little chorus book it shows "Donald P. Hustad" as the author.  HOWEVER, everything online shows that it was written & composed by James H. Fillmore.  So, take your pick on the author - either "Hope Publishing Company" made a horrible mistake or everyone online is just wrong ;-). 

"I will sing of the Lord's great love forever;  with my mouth I will make your faithfulness known through all generations" 
Psalm 89:1

Please take time to  listen to both YouTube videos below the lyrics .  The first version is sung by a Filipino priest so there is a little bit of an accent heard.  The second version I included because it made me laugh.  It is sung by preschoolers and they are so very cute.  Look at one particular boy - about half way through I think he gave up on the sign language and just began imitating an elephant or maybe he just simply enjoyed the sound of his voice with his nose plugged (hahaha).

I Will Sing of the Mercies of the Lord
by Donald P. Hustad  OR  James H. Fillmore  (see above)

1.  I will sing of the mercies of the Lord forever, I will sing.  I will sing.  I will sing of the mercies of the Lord forever, I will sing of the mercies of the Lord.  With my mouth_  will I make known  Thy faithfulness, Thy faithfulness,  With my mouth_  will I make known Thy faithfulness to all generations.  I will sing of the mercies of the Lord forever, I will sing of the mercies of the Lord.
