‘Tis So Sweet – Sunday Songs

Here’s a version of the gospel song ‘Tis So Sweet from Shane and Shane’s Hymns Live.
A pretty faithful rendition that demonstrates how old songs can work in modern situations.

The lyrics:
Chorus 1
Jesus, Jesus, how I trust Him
How I’ve proved Him o’er and o’er
Jesus, Jesus, precious Jesus
Oh for grace to trust Him more
Verse 1
’Tis so sweet to trust in Jesus
Just to take Him at His word
Just to rest upon His promise
Just to know thus saith the Lord
Verse 2
’Tis so sweet to trust in Jesus
Just from sin and self to cease
Just from Jesus simply taking
Life and rest and joy and peace
Chorus 2
Jesus, Jesus, how I trust Him
How I’ve proved Him o’er and o’er
Jesus, Jesus, precious Jesus
Oh for grace to trust Him more
Verse 3
Oh how sweet to trust in Jesus
Just to trust His cleansing blood
And in simple faith to plunge me
’Neath the healing cleansing flood
Chorus 3
Jesus, Jesus, how I trust Him
How I’ve proved Him o’er and o’er
Jesus, Jesus, precious Jesus
Oh for grace to trust Him more
Oh, for grace to trust Him
Verse 4
I’m so glad I learned to trust Thee
Precious Jesus, Saviour, Friend
And I know that Thou art with me
Wilt be with me to the end

His Mercy Is More by Shane & Shane

Shane & Shane are a prolific duo who seem to have settled into a niche of supporting local church musicians.
A recent release is Hymns, which features a number of contemporary hymn-like songs.
I’ve featured His Mercy Is More a couple of times.
I’m sure that it being featured by these guys will see it have an uptick in popularity.

O Come, O Come Emmanuel (12) – Christmas Songs 2018

This version of O Come, O Come Emmanuel is by vocal duo Shane and Shane.
It took me a second or two to adjust to just how high the vocals are at the start.
