singers wanted…i just need one


I should just have my husband record it. I searched youtube last night to no avail. The words were there, but the tune was all wrong.

“I Heard the Voice of Jesus Say” is the hymn we’re currently working on as a family. Yep, we’re those people. I often wonder what the neighbors think when it’s dark outside and we can’t see out, but they can see in, or when the windows are open to let in those few and far between summer chills.

On Wednesdays they can see us waiving our arms to “Father Abraham” or tumbling down at the end of “Only a Boy Named David” or even standing up and sitting down alternately to “Praise Ye the Lord.” That one is especially fun when one of the boys in our family is holding Youngest Daughter.

That’s all good stuff and my children especially enjoy those Wednesday evening devotions. I like the other nights. The ones that have us singing a hymn chosen by Seth. This one I love, but for the life of me I cannot find it for you to hear.

If anyone would want to record themselves singing hymn #699 out of the Lutheran Service Book and then post it online, so I could put it here, well, that would be great.

Until then, I’ll just be singing it in my head.

I want you to see life the way I see it. Often contradictory, seldom predictable, many times lovely, occasionally tragic, but every day filled with God's grace.

  1. Ah, yes, I really like that hymn, too, and the tune is very lovely. Thanks for putting it in my head! So many treasures in our new hymnal.

  2. Your neighbors aren’t the only ones. IF WE HAD neighbors, they would see our Father Abrahams every morning, and hear me pound out the piano hymns every evening as the kids go to bed. I have a reason to look through all my hymnals now… I won’t be singing anything though–I would send you sheet music if I could find it.

  3. I wouldn’t dare punish you with my singing but I love your family sing-a-longs! They sound fun!

    • I’m sure it would be lovely. I think it would be funny if when we get to heaven, and we hear the angels sing, they are all loud and off key. They have six wings, people are terrified of them, it’s certainly possible!

  4. Not quite right, but this is the best I could come up with.

    Play MP3 at the bottom of page.

  5. Try this and see if it works! 🙂
