A few weeks ago we were at Dave and Joni's house and we sang the doxology before lunch. I noticed that the boys didn't know this one. It instantly made my list for our next HOTW. This is as classic a hymn as there is. At Ripley Blvd. Baptist Church, where I grew up, this song was sung every week as the ushers came forward and right before Pastor Tim prayed to "bless both the gift and the giver". Our church and most in America don't sing it any more. This week at the Gammons house we'll be bringing it back.
Enjoy my recent favorite version of the Doxology below.
Hymn of the Week
Words by Thomas Ken
Music by Louis Bourgeois
Praise God, from Whom all blessings flow;
Praise Him, all creatures here below;
Praise Him above, ye heavenly host;
Praise Father, Son, and Holy Ghost.
