Visit us with Thy salvation;

Enter every trembling heart.

Lowly we kneel in prayer before Thy throne,

That theirs may be the love which knows no ending,

Whom thou forevermore dost join in one.

Be Thou my Vision, O Lord of my heart;

Naught be all else to me, save that Thou art.

Thou my best Thought, by day or by night,

Waking or sleeping, Thy presence my light.


All Creatures of Our God and King- A Wonderful Hymn Choice

I am trying to trace the lyrics of “How great is God Almighty” as sung to the misic of John Brow’s Song/Body.

Do you know them?



Suzanne September 17, 2011 at 11:59 pm


“John Brown’s Body” (originally known as “John Brown’s Song”) – an American marching song about the abolitionist John Brown.

Would this perhaps be a place to start? If you haven’t already found it by now, that is. 🙂

I am trying to find the Lyrics of a hymn sung at our wedding 40 years ago. “God be with them while they stand, Heart in heart and hand in hand”.


Suzanne September 17, 2011 at 11:29 pm

Sept 17/11

play list – find title and click on music player when song loads




Emmylou Harris: Heart To Heart
Songwriters: Kennerley Paul Hardy; Harris


Heart to heart, we’ll hold together
Hand in hand, we’ll find a way
Oh, the storms of life may bind us
But with the loving vows that bind us

Heart to heart, hand in hand we’ll stay, side

by side forever and always
Day by day, till our lives are done
This sweet love is ours to treasure far beyond all time and measure
Side by side, day by day as one

hope this helps 🙂 nice song, by the way – it just might be perfect for the wedding I’ll be singing at in a couple of weeks 🙂

tune for “God be with them” is NEWINGTON 7777metre
by Archbishop W.D. Maglagam. Enjoy


Nicola Wigfull September 26, 2011 at 3:10 pm


Your search is over!

God be with them! while the stand
Heart in heart as hand in hand
breathing first to heaven above,
Holy vows of faith and love.

God be with them! when they go
By the path His love will show,
Each to work with ready will,
What they must for Him fulfil

God be with them! while they share
All he gives of toil and care;
Making glad whet’er they do,
With affection kind and true.

God be with them! while they sing
‘Mid the blessings time may bring;
Rising them on wings of praise;
To the light of all their days.

God be with them! while they pray,
Through a dark and troubled day
Learning thin in pain and loss.
How to share their Master’s cross.

God be with them! when at last
Earthly joy for them is past;
Looking then for deathless love,
In the better home above.

My parents (and my mum’s parents before her) had it at their wedding and we’re hoping to have it at our wedding next May. We’re trying to find the tune. Does anyone know it?


Alaina February 24, 2012 at 1:05 am

I also would like to know the tune of the ‘God be with them!’ song above, if anyone knows it. I’ve searched on the internet and can’t find it. Also never heard it before, but I like the words and would like to use it if possible. Thanks!!

In response to:
God be with them! while the stand
Heart in heart as hand in hand
breathing first to heaven above,
Holy vows of faith and love.

And our joys do share
Ratify this sacred union
With thy holy seal
