For His Glory

There is an amazing family that lives in Oklahoma and has 13 children. One was 3 years old and died of cancer 3 years ago. They also have these twin sons who have a CD out that is SO great! It's instrumental music and it's all hymns. Which I love a lot of music but I'm a sucker for Hymns. There is nothing like the old hymns in the hymn book. These two guys are SO talented and their CD would make an amazing soundtrack or gift!

Check them out at : http://www.shekinahspringsstudio.com

And I'm giving away TWO copies! Just leave me a comment telling me your favorite hymn or if you don't have one - just let me know you'd like this CD! You will be blessed by it!!! I'll give it away on Wednesday night of next week!

Amazing Grace. But anytime we had "pick your favorite hymn to sing" night at church I would always raise my hand and say "Onward Christian Soldiers". Loved it.

Shauna Mama said...

I have many hymns that I love, one of them being In the Garden. I recently have fallen in love with another because it's one of my daughter's favorite that she sings all the time..and she's only 3 1/2. It's Have a Little Talk with Jesus.

Erica said...

oh i love "how great thou art" and "it is well with my soul." and i love learning the stories behind the songs & why they were written!

Jennifer said...

i love hymns...my favorite is "the old rugged cross".

Connie said...

"Amazing Grace" has been and I'm sure will always be my favorite! I sing it to my daughter every night when she goes to sleep :) And to hear it played on bagpipes really gets me!

NeverEnoughTime said...

"In The Garden" will always be my favorite hymn...I was baptized at 26 years old, big and pregnant the day after my wedding to my hubby! we will be celebrating 12 years in July....

Susan said...

Oh...it is so hard to pick just one. I love Amazing Grace. I also love Victory in Jesus. My church is Victory Baptist Church...so we sing Victory in Jesus a lot. I also like Have Thine On Way, Lord. The old hymns are the songs I grew up on. I played the piano in our church back when I was a teen and played many of these. Now I've about lost the touch. I got to thinking about old hymns...we sing a lot of contemporary music now days...so I looked up Baptist Hymns. I found this link. It is cool...you can click on the song to hear it.

Tami said...

I have a few that have special meaning. My Grandpa would always sing " That Old Rugged Cross". In church as a little girl, I loved "Onward Christian Soldier" & "Amazing Grace". I still sing the words in my head when I am have a stressful day.

Carey and Jon said...

Definitely "How Great Thou Art". So beautiful, so moving. I have very fond memories of my great-grandma singing this hymn around her house. She was such a godly woman. Her love of this hymn drove me to learn to play it on the piano. Now whenever I want to remember my grandma, I go to the piano.

I know, I know. That was more than you needed but I would love to win this CD.

Have a great weekend Kelly!

I get chills every single time with the words, "turn your eyes upon Jesus, look full in His wonderful face, and the things on earth will grow strangely dim, in the light of His beauty and grace." See? Got chills typing it! CD Sounds awesome!

Joy said...

My fav. hymn is Amazing Love!

Georgia Manning's said...

There is something so comforting in classic hymns. My paternal grandmother's favorite was the Old Rugged Cross and I have so many memories of her humming and singing it as she taught me to cook and sew. My Maternal Grandmother was a music teacher and the church organist. How great thou Art is the one that I most vividly recall when I think of her. These dear women both passed away this past year.

Sarah said...

I used to love Onward Christian Soldiers, because I thought it was about moving forward for evangelism and missions - and then I realized it was about the crusades. So now I'm looking for a new one (or can I just change the meaning of the old one?).

Monica said...

That is a great CD and I love old hymns! I would really enjoy listening to the entire CD. Thanks for sharing this with us.

Amber said...

Lily of the Valley would be the # 1 hymn for me....

Amanda said...

I love "Near the Cross"

Carrie said...

I love that reading over the comments I can hear the words to all these hymns in my head. It reminds me of my Wonderful Saviour and going to church with my Great Grandparents when I was a kid. My favorite hymns (those I hum when stressed or nervous) are "What a Friend We Have in Jesus", "Softly and Tenderly", and "Precious Memories".

Sarah said...

I love hymns too! 'Come Thou Fount' is probably my most favorite ever!

Paige said...

I love Amazing Grace, In the Garden and I'll Fly Away!

Gretta said...

My favorite hymn is "It is Well". Not only is the story behind it so compelling but just knowing that no matter what we go through in life, "It is Well" with our souls because of Christ and his sacrifice on the cross.

K. Joy said...

II love great is thy faithfulness. The night before my grandma passed away I laid in bed and sang hymns yo her. I think hymns are so powerful!

Heather said...

My favorite hymn is "How Great Thou Art." I LOVE that song! I have for many years. But, a little over 5 1/2 years ago, two days before my daddy past from this earth to Heaven, I sang this to him. He was no longer restless when he heard hymns. So, this hymn has even a more special meaning to me. Anyway... I don't know why I shared that. But, I love that song :-)

Alyssa said...

I love hymns.. I'm not sure that I have a favorite, but the singing is my favorite part of church!

God is an Awesome God.

GotGRITS said...

I have so many, but for some reason a few that have special meaning come to mind......In the Garden, I Saw the Light, Where Would I Go But to the Lord, and Beulah Land. These are because they were family favorites.

Karo said...

Take my Hand, Precious Lord. I love it so much.
"Through the storm, through the night
Lead me on to the light..."
P.S. Kelly, if this shows up twice it's because I'm having internet issues!

zumbaluvr said...

There's so many hymns I love, depends on the day and where my mind is but some favs are "How Great Thou Art", "Amazing Grace", "Be Still My Soul" and "Because I Have Been Given Much". My grandfather was a member of the first gospel quartet that ever aired on the radio here in AR so hyms have always had a special place in my heart. His favorite was "The Lily of the Valley".

Tammie F. said...

i like a lot of hymns, but "Blessed Assurance" has really spoken to me over the past 11 weeks as my Mama has fought for her life due to postop complications of a routine hysterectomy. She is some better today, but we have that assurance EVERY day. Appreciate your prayers for her healing.

Amazing grace is my favorite hymn. My son plays it on our organ and it brings tears to me eyes.

Tina said...

How Great Thou Art is the first hymn I learned to play on the piano and will always be a favorite. I have found memories of playing the old hymns with my grandmother on the piano. She is playing them from heaven now.

The B's said...

I love Hymns and the "meatiness" of them. I think one of my favorites is "It is Well". That Hymn applies to everyone no matter what stage of life or what is going on. :)

Nichole said...

If I had to pick a favorite I think I would pick ’Tis so sweet to trust in Jesus.

But I mean thats only if I had to pick!

zizzer05@hotmail.com

Corrie at "Cents"able Momma said...

I love How Great Thou Art and It is Well With My Soul (because of the story behind the hymn).

Kristin said...

Here I Am Lord is my favorite hymn--we sang it at my friend Katie's funeral--and it was before I was a Christian as her life directly influenced my life to give it to Jesus. Now I think of Katie every time I hear the hymn and am grateful for how the Lord used her life to bring me to Him.

Hannah and Hunter's mom said...

I love hymns and miss singing them. Our church does not sing a lot of old hymns. I would say my favorite hymn is His Eye is on the Sparrow.

DARA said...

Amazing Grace!

abi said...

Can I still enter? I love Be Thou My Vision. Thanks!

Mitzi said...

Nothing like a gospel hymn! Two of my favorites are "The Old Rugged Cross" and "Victory in Jesus". I sing to my 2 year old at night before bed (bless his heart) and "Jesus Loves Me" is one of the songs. He is learning and picking up on the words and it makes me teary eyed everytime he sings a single word of it! :)
