Old Fashioned Sunday Hymn Sing #114

Welcome to the 114th 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 "When All Thy Mercies, O My God" written by Joseph Addison (1672-1719) & composed by Thomas Tallis (1520-1585).  The history of today's featured hymnist is detailed at the beginning of the first video below.

I have included 2 videos below the lyrics.  (The first video has some extra verses which appeared in the original hymn.  Also, it details this author's history)    Enjoy!

Turn with me to number 405 in your hymnals and let's sing:

When All Thy Mercies, O My God
written by Joseph Addison (1672-1719) & composed by Thomas Tallis (1520-1585)

1. When all Thy mercies, O my God, My rising soul surveys, Transported with the view, I'm lost In wonder, love and praise.

2.   Unnumbered comforts to my soul Thy tender care bestowed, Before my infant heart could know From whom those comforts flowed.

3.   When worn with sickness, oft hast Thou With health renewed my face, And, when in sins and sorrows bowed, Revived my soul with grace.

4.   Through every period of my life Thy goodness I'll pursue;  And after death, in distant worlds, The glorious theme renew..
