Old Fashioned Sunday Hymn Sing #69

Welcome to the 69th 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 "His Way With Thee" written & composed by Cyrus S. Nusbaum (1861-1937).    
Today's featured author/composer was born in the state of Indiana but after school moved to Kansas and was a Methodist Minister there.  During WWI he was appointed by Woodrow Wilson as inspector of the Red Cross in France.
"Enter through the narrow gate. For wide is the gate and broad is the road that leads to destruction, and many enter through it.  But small is the gate and narrow the road that leads to life, and only a few find it." 
Matthew 7:13-14

I have included 2 versions of this lovely hymn (below the lyrics).  The second version is performed by a wonderful quartet.  Enjoy!

Turn with me to number 278 in your hymnals and let's sing:

His Way With Thee
written & composed by Cyrus S. Nusbaum (1861-1937)

1. Would you live for Jesus and be always pure and good?  Would you walk with Him within the narrow road?  Would you have Him bear your burden, carry all your load?  Let Him have His way with thee,

2.   Would you have Him make you free, and follow at His call?  Would you know the peace that comes by giving all?  Would you have Him save you, so that you need never fall?  Let Him have His way with thee,

3.   Would you in His kingdom find a place of constant rest?  Would you prove Him true in providential test?  Would you in His service labor always at your best?  Let Him have His way with thee,


His pow'r can make you what you ought to be;  His blood can cleanse your heart and make you free;  His love can fill your soul, and you will see "Twas best for Him to have His way with thee

A special thanks to "stillamazed27" for sharing this with us!
