Old Fashioned Sunday Hymn Sing #46

Welcome to the 46th 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 "All Hail the Power of Jesus' Name" written by Edward Perronet & Composed by James Eillor.  
This is a very old song.  The author of this hymn was a missionary in India and had this hymn published in 1779.  This song was/is very special to many people since it has been translated into many different languages.

Please enjoy the YouTube video of this treasured hymn! (see below the lyrics)

Turn with me to number 165 in your hymnals and let's sing:

All Hail the Power of Jesus' Name (Diadem C.M.)
written by E. Perronet   composed by James Eillor

1. All hail the pow'r of Jesus' name! Let angels prostrate fall, Let angels prostrate fall;  Bring forth the royal diadem,
2.   Ye chosen seed of Israel's race, Ye ransomed from the fall, Ye ransomed from the fall, Hail Him who saves you by His grace,
3.   Let ev'ry kindred, ev'ry tribe, On this terrestrial ball, On this terrestrial ball, To Him all majesty ascribe,
4.  O that you yonder sacred throng We at His feet may fall, We at His feet may fall!  We'll join the everlasting song.


And crown Him, crown Him, crown Him, crown Him, And
And crown................................................................Him,  

crown Him, Lord of all,    crown Him;  And crown Him Lord of all
Crown Him        Crown............Him;                                         

A special thanks to "Michael Devine" for sharing this with us!
