    Among the most admirable people in the church I grew up in was a middle-aged couple who got up in front of the congregation about once a year to sing a duet. As I recall, they always chose a song about how 'He could have called ten thousand angels to come and set Him free...'

    While I no longer buy into the intent of the lyric, I still remember them and their song with fondness. They wound up moving away to Alaska, of all places.

    Well I don't know if you'd call it a hymn, but I used to really enjoy Jars of Clay's "Love Song for a Savior." Now the strange multipersonality, slave/master/lover thing really creeps me out.

    "In open fields of wild flowers,
    she breathes the air and flies away
    She thanks her Jesus for the daises and the roses
    in no simple language
    Someday she'll understand the meaning of it all
    He's more than the laughter or the stars in the heavens
    As close as a heartbeat or a song on her lips
    Someday she'll trust Him and learn how to see Him
    Someday He'll call her and she will come running
    and fall in His arms and the tears will fall down and she'll pray,

    "I want to fall in love with You" x4

    Sitting silent wearing Sunday best
    The sermon echoes through the walls
    A great salvation through it calls to the people
    who stare into nowhere, and can't feel the chains on their souls

    He's more than the laughter or the stars in the heavens
    As close a heartbeat or a song on our lips
    Someday we'll trust Him and learn how to see Him
    Someday He'll call us and we will come running
    and fall in His arms and the tears will fall down and we'll pray,

    "I want to fall in love with You" x4

    It seems too easy to call you "Savior",
    Not close enough to call you "God"
    So as I sit and think of words I can mention
    to show my devotion

    "I want to fall in love with You" until it fades out"

    Thank you to this site:

    Allow me to plug Johnny Cash's My Mother's Hymn Book. (He said it was his favourite out of all his recordings. )

    Then, there's that great spiritual O Death:

    Artist: Ralph Stanley Lyrics
    Song: O Death Lyrics

    O, Death
    O, Death
    Won't you spare me over til another year
    Well what is this that I can't see
    With ice cold hands takin' hold of me
    Well I am death, none can excel
    I'll open the door to heaven or hell
    Whoa, death someone would pray
    Could you wait to call me another day
    The children prayed, the preacher preached
    Time and mercy is out of your reach
    I'll fix your feet til you cant walk
    I'll lock your jaw til you cant talk
    I'll close your eyes so you can't see
    This very air, come and go with me
    I'm death I come to take the soul
    Leave the body and leave it cold
    To draw up the flesh off of the frame
    Dirt and worm both have a claim
    O, Death
    O, Death
    Won't you spare me over til another year
    My mother came to my bed
    Placed a cold towel upon my head
    My head is warm my feet are cold
    Death is a-movin upon my soul
    Oh, death how you're treatin' me
    You've close my eyes so I can't see
    Well you're hurtin' my body
    You make me cold
    You run my life right outta my soul
    Oh death please consider my age
    Please don't take me at this stage
    My wealth is all at your command
    If you will move your icy hand
    Oh the young, the rich or poor
    Hunger like me you know
    No wealth, no ruin, no silver no gold
    Nothing satisfies me but your soul
    O, death
    O, death
    Wont you spare me over til another year
    Wont you spare me over til another year
    Wont you spare me over til another year

    Yes, this "hymn" was immortalized in the movie "Oh, Brother Where Art Thou."

    My favourite hymns are the ones I sing my children to sleep with,

    Jesus loves me

    Jesus loves the little children

    Amazing grace (best of the best)

    How great thou art

    He walks with me

    Wow, I've started and I can't seem to stop!

    Swing low sweet chariot

    This little light of mine

    I think I could go on for for awhile, it would be a long list and there all my favourites.

    Gillian Welch & Allison Krauss singing Down to the River to Pray.

    I can recall more than a few times, I've been encouraged while
    singing along with this song.
    Kelly


    Praise The Lord
    =============

    When you're up against a struggle
    That shatters all your dreams
    And your hope has been cruelly crushed
    By Satan's manifesting scheme
    And you feel the urge within you
    To submit to earthly fears
    Don't let the faith you're standing in, seem to disappear

    (Chorus)

    Praise the Lord
    He can work with those who praise Him ,
    Praise the Lord
    For our God inhabits praise,
    Praise the Lord
    For the chains that seem to bind you
    Serve only to remind you that they drop powerless behind you
    When you praise him

    Now satan is a liar
    And he wants to make us think
    That we are paupers
    When he knows himself
    We're children of the King
    So lift up the might shield of faith
    For the battle has been won
    We know that Jesus Christ has risen
    So the work's already done

    (Repeat Chorus)

    Who could forget this song here below.

    ARTIST: Norman Greenbaum
    TITLE: Spirit in the Sky
    Lyrics and Chords


    When I die and they lay me to rest
    Gonna go to the place that's best
    When they lay me down to die
    Goin' up to the spirit in the sky

    / A - / - D / - A / E A /

    Goin' up to the spirit in the sky - spirit in the sky
    That's where I'm gonna go when I die - when I die
    When I die and they lay me to rest
    I'm gonna go to the place that's the best

    Prepare yourself, you know it a must
    Gotta have a friend in Jesus
    So you know that when you die
    He's gonna recommend you to the spirit in the sky - spirit in the sky

    Oh, recommend you to the spirit in the sky
    That's where you're gonna go when you die - when you die
    When you die and they lay you to rest
    You're gonna go to the place that's the best

    Never been a sinner, I've never sinned
    I've got a friend in Jesus
    So you know that when I die
    He's gonna set me up with the spirit in the sky

    Oh, set me up with the spirit in the sky - spirit in the sky
    That's where I'm gonna go when I die - when I die
    When I die and they lay me to rest
    I'm gonna go to the place that's the best
    Go to the place that's the best
