Old Fashioned Sunday Hymn Sing #42

Welcome to the 42nd 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 "He Hideth My Soul" written by Fanny J. Crosby (1820-1915) & composed by William J. Kirkpatrick (1838-1921).  
We have studied this author before: Fanny J. Crosby.  As I shared previously: This author had such a difficult life but glorified God through her talent of writing.  Fanny was blind and lost her sight when she was only 6 weeks old due to a medical mishap.  And then, her father died when she was only 1 year old!  However, she wrote over 9,000 hymns in her lifetime and what makes that number even more unbelievable is that she didn't begin writing until she was 44 years old!!

I have included 2 YouTube videos of this wonderful hymn!    ENJOY!

"When my glory passes by, I will put you in a cleft in the rock and cover you with my hand until I have passed by." Exodus 33:22

Turn with me to number 178 in your hymnals and let's sing:

He Hideth My Soul
written by Fanny J. Crosby (1820-1915) & composed by Wiliam J. Kirkpatrick (1838-1921)
1. A wonderful Savior is Jesus my Lord, A wonderful Savior to me;  He hideth my soul in the cleft of the rock, Where rivers of pleasure I see.


2.   A wonderful Savior is Jesus my Lord, He taketh my burden away;  He holdeth me up, and I shall not be moved.  He giveth me strength as my day.


3.   With numberless blessings each moment He crowns, And, filled with His fullness divine, I sing in my rapture, oh, glory to God For such a Redeemer as mine!


4.   When clothed in His brightness, transported I rise To meet Him in clouds of the sky, His perfect salvation, His wonderful love, I'll shout with the millions on high


He hideth my soul in the cleft of the rock That shadows a dry, thirsty land;  He hideth my life in the depths of His love, And covers me there with His hand.  And covers me there with His hand. 

A special thanks to "Faith For the Family" for sharing this with us!
