    @Joe Grundy

    Some powerful hymns in your repertoire Joe. Amazing Love, performed at the Royal Albert Hall in 2013 was phenomenal. Never make it to the Kingdom Hall because of the words, "that Christ my God would die for me"

    @Barry as well..."Guide me O Thou great Jehovah" would be banned because it equates Jehovah with the bread of heaven (Jesus)in the first verse.. Some substitute Redeemer for Jehovah to make things fit.

    I loved Cerys Matthew's voice and was grateful for the added English text.

    Thank you.

    We sang the Green Hill song once in our church because one of our elders loves it. But only once because we could not seem to get the music right. Lovely song though.

    I love just about everything that Johnny Cash sang. You are right about The Old Rugged Cross being rejected outright.

    Absolutely triumphant rendition of "Land of Hope and Glory". Gives you goosebumps.

    Nixed from the hall for patriotism and flag waving.

    https://youtu.be/39ZfrO0UW_s There is an interest story to this one because the mormons sing this and have changed the words because they don't believe the trinity doctrine. Also the SDA church didn't believe the trinity doctrine in th early 1900 but sang this song with 'God reigns eternally' now because the trinity doctrine is accepted by most SDAs they sing the original ' God in three persons blessed trinity' and also the holy holy holy denotes the trinity. Not to be sung in the KH ever.

    I found myself tapping the floor and seeing an imaginary Gomer Pyle and Sargent Carter marching and smiling.

    LOL...no doubt the Kingdom Hallers would appreciate this armed forces medley.

    @ Barry,

    In my estimation, Holy, Holy, Holy, is the most perfect hymn ever written in the English language. I'm quoting someone btw but I've forgotten who.
