Sacred Harp 230 Converting Grace

As pants the hart for cooling streams,
When heated in the chase;
So longs my soul, Oh God, for Thee,
And Thy refreshing grace.
Oh, for converting grace, and oh,
For sanctifying pow’r;
Lord, we ask in Jesus’ name,
A sweet, refreshing show’r.

For Thee, my God, the living God,
My thirsty soul doth repine;
Oh, when shall I behold Thy face,
Thy majesty divine?
Why restless, why cast down, my soul?
Hope still; and thou shalt sing
Praise of Him who is thy God,
Thy health’s eternal spring.

    We still have sacred harp singings in Alabama USA. One can only get the resonance properly, I think, in an older wood- paneled room as the 2nd video you posted shows. Also if the assembly is in a Primitive Baptist church it seems to sound sweeter- but that’s just my bias of course. Some of God’s children have first been introduced to doctrines of grace thru these old songs. Great post.

    • I live way up North and it’s not really something practiced around here. I just pick my banjo and sing from the Sacred Harp or Gadsby’s Hymns.
