Old Fashioned Sunday Hymn Sing #115

Welcome to the 115th Old Fashioned Sunday Hymn Sing!

I miss the old hymns that I remember from my childhood - there were no drums, no electric guitar and no mind numbing beat. It was just voices and maybe a piano or an organ. The choir led the congregation in singing - and the words of these hymns are poetic. I realize that there is a need for the modern "seeker oriented" worship music - but it is also necessary to have deeper songs (no offense intended to anyone who prefers the newer church songs).

I decided to have an "Old Fashion Sunday Hymn Sing" once a month on this blog.
I personally do NOT have a great singing voice - I used to play the guitar & piano but my voice is NOT an instrument. That's the great thing about this digital hymn sing, you can warble along without being embarrassed or without offending anyone else.

The hymns that we will be studying are taken from an old hymnal from a Baptist church that is no longer in existence - "The North American Hymnal" published in 1956 by "THE ROGER WILLIAMS PRESS"

I will also try to find a version of the featured hymn on "YouTube" to share with you each month.

Today's featured hymn is "Only Trust Him" written & composed by John H. Stockton (1813-1877).  The featured author was a minister, musician, composer and also a hymn writer.  He published two gospel song hymnals.

I have included 2 videos below the lyrics.      Enjoy!

Turn with me to number 232 in your hymnals and let's sing:

Only Trust Him
written composed by John H Stockton (1813-1877)

1. Come, every soul by sin oppressed, There's mercy with the Lord.  And He will surely give you rest By trusting in His word.


2.   For Jesus shed His precious blood, Rich blessings to bestow;  Plunge now into the crimson flood That washes white as snow.


3.   Yes, Jesus is the Truth, the Way, That leads you into rest;  Believe in Him without delay, And you are fully blest.


4.   Come, then, and join this holy band, And onto glory go, To dwell in that celestial land, Where joys immortal flow.



Only trust Him, only trust Him, Only trust Him now.

He will save you, He will save you, He will save you now.
