Angels We Have Heard On High – Christmas Songs 2016 Day 24

We finished our carols and readings service tonight with Angels We Have Heard On High.
I just heard Marina Prior sing the same arrangement of Angels that she sings every year at the Melbourne Carols By Candlelight. It’s a pretty cool arrangement.
Here’s Fernando Ortega’s version.
A good finish for today and tomorrow’s coming.

Come Ye Sinners – Sunday Songs

This version of Come Ye Sinners by Fernando Ortega and Amy Grant has more verses than those featured below.
It’s a really solid song.
“In the arms of my dear Saviour
O there are ten thousand charms.”

Some of the lyrics:
1.
Come ye sinners, poor and needy,
Weak and wounded, sick and sore;
Jesus ready stands to save you,
Full of pity, love, and pow’r.
2.
I will arise and go to Jesus,
He will embrace me in His arms;
In the arms of my dear Savior,
O there are ten thousand charms.
3.
Come, ye thirsty, come and welcome,
God’s free bounty glorify;
True belief and true repentance,
Ev’ry grace that brings you nigh.
4.
Come ye weary, heavy laden,
Lost and ruined by the fall;
If you tarry till you’re better,
You will never come at all.
5.
Let not conscience make you linger,
Nor of fitness fondly dream;
All the fitness He requireth
Is to feel your need of Him.

I Will Praise Him, Still – Sunday Songs

A tough day, away from home church and family. I miss them like crazy.
Same faithful God, though. Where ever I am.

Fernando Ortega says it like this.
Verse 1
When the morning falls on the farthest hill
I will sing His name I will praise Him still
Verse 2
When dark trials come and my heart is filled
With the weight of doubt I will praise Him still
Chorus 1
For the Lord our God He is strong to save
From the arms of death from the deepest grave
Verse 3
And He gave us life in His perfect will
And by His good grace I will praise Him still

(and repeat all)
