The Then Sings My Soul inaugural concert took place on Thursday, Oct. 12, 2017 at City Playhouse Theatre in Vaughan, Ont. Guest artists Decision quartet, out of Kitchener, joined song director Dan Hoddinott and pianist Peter Kaups onstage. In addition to performing new and classic Gospel songs, the artists banded together to lead the audience through a heartwarming evening of singing old-time hymns and choruses, along with special moments of sharing.
We put the hymn book in your hands!
Hymn books and chorus sheets are available for pickup at Then Sings My Soul events. You are also presented with a ballot slip you can use to request a number for the Request A Hymn time we feature in the second half. Special boxes to receive your request ballots are provided in the foyer. Places for you to enter contact information are included on the ballot. (We’d love an opportunity to get to know you more, but providing contact information is strictly voluntary.)
Plan to join us at our next event!
To those who know the lift of a good old Gospel song, we say come. To the weary and the joyful alike, these for whom the power of an old-time hymn or chorus or Gospel song still resonates in their midnight hour, we say join us. To those who might have left the fellowship, yet hear the echo of the song no matter where your footsteps take you, we say come along. To all who feel abandoned by emergent ways, and destinations where the language of your heart is seldom spoken, we say come and be heard with us. The song that has remained firmly planted on your tongue — ready to express the cry of your heart and the longing of your soul, the joy of your freedom and your hope in things eternal, the frailty of your condition and the unbridled praise for Whom you have believed — is welcome in this place. Come and let your freedom ring!
Then sings my soul my Saviour God to Thee… | O love of God, how rich and pure! How measureless and strong!… | Tell me the story most precious; sweetest that ever was heard… | Faith of our fathers! Holy faith! We will be true to thee till death!… | Jesus paid it all, all to Him I owe… | In the stillness of the midnight, precious sacred scenes unfold… | Jesus is passing this way, is passing this way today… | I’ve wandered far away from God; now I’m coming home… | As I travel thru this pilgrim land there is a Friend who walks with me… | Where He leads me I will follow, I’ll go with Him all the way… | O there’s peace and rest and love, where the healing waters flow!…
