Awesome Hymn Resource

Those of you who follow the Ambleside Online Curriculum (and I do albeit somewhat loosely) are familiar with teaching your children a hymn each semester.  If your not proficient enough on the piano to accompany each hymn it can be tricky to find a good resource to help your children learn.  Today I saw a link to this semester's hymn that I love so much I sat here and listened and sang along with several.

This semester's hymn, I Am Resolved, is here.  The link to embed wasn't working.

And here is one of my favorite Hymns, Nothing But The Blood of Jesus.  I first heard this hymn working at a local mission to the homeless.  It was requested by one of the men who had come for dinner.  Singing this hymn to the piano in this video is very similar to the experience at the mission as it was also sung to piano like this.

Of course, some of you may not like this style of music, but my family loves old fashioned gospel and hymns.  And I love the "sing a long" feel of the piano. And if you go to the youtube "channel" for Oldsongswithlyrics who posted this video you will find dozens more.

You should try it really.  Just sitting and singing through some of these hymns is very uplifting and even more fun with more people.
