Old Fashioned Hymn Sing #118

Welcome to the 118th 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 "Moment by Moment" written by Daniel W. Whittle (1840-1901) & composed by May Whittle Moody (1870-1963).  This beautiful hymn has a unique history - it's a father/daughter duo!  The father (Daniel Whittle) was an evangelist & a gospel song writer, while his daughter composed the tune to go along with her father's lyrics.

I have included 2 videos below the lyrics (the second video is a cappella) .

Turn with me to number 395 in your hymnals and let's sing:

Moment by Moment
written by Daniel W. Whittle (1840-1901) composed by May Whittle Moody (1870-1963)

1. Dying with Jesus, by death reckoned mine;  Living with Jesus a new life divine;  Looking to Jesus till glory doth shine, Moment by moment, O Lord, I am Thine.


2.   Never a trial that He is not there, Never a burden that He doth not bear, Never a sorrow that He doth not share, Moment by moment,I'm under His care.


3.   Never a heartache and never a groan, Never a teardrop and never a moan;  Never a danger, but there on the throne, Moment by moment, He thinks of His own.


4.   Never a weakness that He doth not feel, Never a sickness that He cannot heal, Moment by moment, in woe or in weal, Jesus my Savior, abides with me still.



Moment by moment I'm kept in His love;  Moment by moment I've life from above:

Looking to Jesus till glory doth shine;  Moment by moment, O Lord, I am Thine.
