Sunday Morning Praise

The Solid Rock

  1. I love the words of this song-And it's okay that I'm not so fond of the tune. This is why I love these old hymns and why I listen to radio stations like BBN.

    when I'm constantly changing, and world around me is falling apart, My hope is in Christ my Solid Rock and Firm Foundation upon which I stand-Hallelujah! My countenance lifts up to heaven with such inexpressible joy to the Great I AM even in the worst times of my life.

    as one commentator states-"The old hymns expressed the theology of the church in profound and perceptive ways and with winsome, memorable language. They lifted the worshiper’s thoughts to God and gave him striking words by which to remember God’s attributes. Today’s songs reflect our shallow or nonexistent theology and do almost nothing to elevate one’s thoughts about God."
    Thanks EBenz for sharing

    1. Amen, Linda! Who was the commentator? I would like to read that. He/She is right on!

  2. I love this song too, though I have heard it with a different tune. This was different, but I liked it. Last night, evening service at a church we know and occasionally visit (the pastor and his wife are dear family friends), they did a hymn sing. The worship leader sat at his piano and let everyone fire away their desires from the hymnal. What a glorious time!
