Fun Fridays #51 - GLADIOLUS GLADNESS

by Angie Ouellette-Tower for http://www.godsgrowinggarden.com/ photo DSCF7791_zpsl7swvr3u.jpg

Fun Fridays #51 - GLADIOULUS GLADNESS
Happiness and laughter are so good for our health!
"A happy heart makes the face cheerful" Proverbs 15:13
(click HERE to read the health benefits of laughter)

This is a series called:  "Fun Fridays".  On the first Friday of every month I will share with you an old photo or something from the recent past that made me happy;  in hopes that it will at least make you smile 😊


Copy_(3)_of_scan0015

In the picture above, my mom (young girl) and my aunt are enjoying their first place of residence in North America after enduring the long journey from Europe after WWII.  I am told that it was a sweltering hot summer and they were shocked at the temperature difference from Europe's climate.  However, as you can see by the smiles, the gladiolus brought great joy and made the heat insignificant.

Old Fashioned Sunday Hymn Sing #95

Welcome to the 95th 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 "Send the Light" written & composed by Charles H. Gabriel (1856-1932). 

Today's featured author grew up on a farm in Iowa.  This family farm is where neighbors would gather to sing hymns.  He taught himself to play the reed organ and by the age of 16 he was teaching "singing" in schools.  In his 30's he moved to California to be a Sunday School Music Director and then a few years later moved to Chicago.  He composed and wrote the lyrics to hundreds of songs.  It is estimated that he composed about 7,000 songs in his lifetime!!!! .   


SundayJesusLIGHT2



I have included 2 videos below the lyrics.  The first one is very unique because one person sings all 4 parts: Tenor, Lead, Bass & Alto.  The second video is a Folk version - Enjoy!


Turn with me to number 499 in your hymnals and let's sing:

Send the Light
written & composed by Charles H. Gabriel (1856-1932)

1. There's a call comes ringing o'er the restless wave "Send the light!......Send the light!"  There are souls to rescue, there are souls to save.
 CHORUS

2.   We have heard the Macedonian call today "Send the light!......Send the light!"  And a golden offering at the cross we lay,
 CHORUS

3.   Let, us pray that grace may everywhere abound, "Send the light!......Send the light!"  And a Christlike spirit everywhere be found,
 CHORUS

4.   Let us not grow weary in the work of love, "Send the light!......Send the light!"  Let us gather jewels for a crown above,
 CHORUS

Chorus

Send the light!................Send the light!................Send the light!................the
                Send the light!            Send the light!             Send the light!

blessed       gos - pel        light;  Let it shine......................from shore to,
the       blessed gospel light;                    Let it shine.                     

shore!.............................shine......................forever more......................
from shore to shore!         Let it shine                    forever more.





A special thanks to "Acapeldridge" for sharing this with us!
