Music to touch your spirit. . .

"I might not be a religious man myself but I know good music when I hear it, and this is very good! . . . I don’t think that I have ever given such high ratings to so many songs before. But the fact is that they are well deserved because the music is amazing. Simply wonderful religious ballads and they really get to your heart. . .everytime."

Crown Him with many crowns,
The Lamb upon His throne;
Hark! how the heavenly anthems drowns
All music but his own.
Awake, my soul, and sing
Of Him who died for thee,
And hail Him as thy matchless King
Through all eternity.

Crown Him the Lord of life,
Who triumphed oer the grave,
And rose victorious in the strife
For those He came to save;
His glories now we sing
Who died and rose on high,
Who died, eternal life to bring,
And lives, that death may die.

Crown Him the Lord of peace,
Whose power a scepter sways
From pole to pole, that wars may cease,
And all be prayer and praise;
His reign shall know no end,
And round His pierced feet
Fair flowers of paradise extend
Their fragrance ever sweet.

Crown Him the Lord of love;
Behold His hands and side,
Those wounds, yet visible above,
In beauty glorified.
All hail, Redeemer, Hail!
For Thou hast died for me;
Thy praise and glory shall not fail
Throughout eternity.

 

Arrangement Copyright 2000 Don Wigton

Song Story

This hymn was written by two men who never met. At 48 Matthew Bridges became a convert to Roman Catholicism and it was only three years later that he published this praise song under the title “The Song of the Seraphs. It was a Protestant preacher, Godfrey Thring, who completed the lyrics about thirty years later by adding several stanzas.

One of the aspects that Godfrey Thring felt was missing in the original version was a stanza on the Resurrection, and so it was added.  “His glories now we sing who died and rose on high, who died, eternal life to bring, and lives, that death may die.

This great hymn was the inspiration for my own praise song Crowned With Glory -- which also is available on this page. Therefore, I knew it would not be long before I made an arrangement of it. The music setting was inspired by the very successful Christmas CD that the Wigtunes produced in the winter of 1999. This hymn arrangement is a part of a larger effort to produce an entire instrumental hymn album in a piano, guitar and small orchestral setting (much like the Christmas CD).

It begins with a solitary flute accompanied by light acoustic guitars with a B3 eventually building the first verse to a quiet climax. A solo cello follows accompanied by a dainty piano giving the rendition Baroque flavor. On the last verse, listen for the high strings playing a vibrant descant over the somber melody while lifting the soul in adulation of the King who is crowned with glory.

Now I saw heaven opened, and behold, a white horse. And he who sat on him was called Faithful and true, and in righteousness He judges and makes war. his eyes were like a flame of fire, and on His head were many crowns. He had a name written that no one knew except Himself. He was clothed with a robe dripped in blood, and His name is called the Word of God. (Rev 19:11-13)

All glory and praise,
To the Lamb that was slain,
Who has taken our sins
And has cleansed every stain.

Hallelujah, Thine the glory!
Hallelujah, amen!
Hallelujah, Thine the glory!
Revive us again.

Revive us again
Fill each heart with Thy love:
May each soul be rekindled with fire from above.

Hallelujah, Thine the glory!
Hallelujah, amen!
Hallelujah, Thine the glory!
Revive us again.

Song Story

The author of this favorite gospel song was a Scottish physician, William P. Mackay. It was first published in 1875 under the inscription O Lord, revive Thy work.

Charles Spurgeon, a great Baptist minister in England, lived preached during the turn of the century once commented on Psalm 85: 6 that declares: Will you not revive us again, that your people may rejoice in you? With that in mind Spurgeon said, A genuine revival without joy in the Lord is as impossible as spring without flowers or daydawn without light.

The first three stanzas of this praise hymn carry with them great exclamations of praise to God, followed by a final verse that calls on god to revive us again. Revival begins with prayer and praise from a spirit of genuine gratitude from those who thank the Lord with all their heart.

The turn of the century was a time of great spiritual warfare in the West as the deceptive outpouring of humanistic thought began to grab the minds of many people, both Christian and non-Christian alike. Today we are living in the aftermath of this upsurge of human arrogance to see the Church surrounded by an atheistic culture as the people have been weakened by their own lust for independence and wealth. Now, more than ever, we must cry Revive us again! as we learn to praise and rejoice in God, rather than the edifices of our own accomplishments.

It was with this in mind that I decided to record this marvelous praise hymn as a message to America (and any other nation) during the millennial Fourth of July celebration of her independence. Indeed, Americas freedom was clearly founded upon the Christian principles that she has now abandoned.

It is a powerful song, so I determined to put together an instrumental arrangement that did it justice. However, when Vanessa first heard it, she was not impressed. She is always very kind in her comments, but I always know what she is thinking. In this case, it was obvious that I had slipped into an old habit of over-producing a song, so I went back and systematically began to remove parts.

The setback with Vanessa left me going into the wee hours of the night completing the mixdown and creating the mp3 for upload while Vanessa retired for the night. The next morning I wanted to make sure that I liked what I had done before uploading it. Vanessa happened to come into the room at that time and I noticed her listening to the arrangement inquisitively. My insecurity began to rise up, but I asked her what she was doing anyway. She answered by letting me know she was just listening.

After that song ended, I looked at her with only questions in my mind. Yet her answer surprised me. I was just listening and wondering what had happened, she revealed. I sounds a lot different than last night and I was thinking it was just me. But I explained that I had made many changes and she responded that it was very good now.

It has a lot less in it now, but the Hammond organ, piano, bass and drums support the melody played by strings, horns and a flute to bring a modern dynamic to this classic praise piece. We pray that you are lead to a revival in your heart, as you listen to the dynamic message contained in this song.

Blessed assurance, Jesus is mine!

O what a foretaste of glory divine!

Heir of salvation, purchase of God,

Born of His Spirit, washed in His blood.

 

This is my story, this is my song,

Praising my Savior all the day long;

This is my story, this is my song,

Praising my Savior all the day long.

 

Perfect submission, perfect delight!

Visions of rapture now burst on my sight;

Angels descending bring from above

Echoes of mercy, whispers of love.

 

This is my story, this is my song,

Praising my Savior all the day long;

This is my story, this is my song,

Praising my Savior all the day long.

 

Perfect submission – all is at rest,

I in my Savior am happy and blest;

Watching and waiting, looking above,

Filled with His goodness, lost in His love.

 

This is my story, this is my song,

Praising my Savior all the day long;

This is my story, this is my song,

Praising my Savior all the day long.

Song Story

 

Fanny Crosby wrote more than eight thousand hymns using more than two hundred pen names.  She was under contract with a music publisher and wrote three new hymns each week during much of her adult life.  She was blind so she would formulate an entire song in her mind and dictate it to a friend or secretary.

 

Phoebe Palmer Knapp, wife of the founder of Metropolitan Life Insurance Company, composed the tune to “Blessed Assurance” in 1873 and brought it to Fanny in Brooklyn.  She immediately asked, “Play it for me on the organ.”  After Knapp did she asked, What does this tune say?”  Fanny was kneeling in prayer so she played it a second time and then a third.  Then the blind woman responded with enthusiasm, “That says, ‘Blessed assurance, Jesus is mine!  O what a foretaste of glory divine!’”

 

When I composed the instrumental arrangement to this song I wanted something a little more delicate than the way this tune is generally played in church.  During my years at First Baptist Church in Bakersfield, Ca., the Pastor, Dr. John Lavendar loved to accentuate with long-dramatic pauses.  This was very enjoyable and exciting!!  However, I found in the melody and lyrics a tenderness and sweetness that seems just perfect for reflective praise.  This is how this instrumental has been put together.  A graceful flute and flowing cello accompany classic acoustic guitars reflectively with gentleness.  We pray that this arrangement give you cheer as you praise God “all the day long.”
