To Thy Holy Name

There’s a record I used to listen to during my time at South Nutfield Free Church. A few years later, when I started work as a computer programmer, I had a colleague who had been a musician on the album. I have only just realised the connection now I look at the sleeve notes. I picked up the record at a charity shop today for £1. At the time, I wasn’t committed to my faith, and I probably wouldn’t have appreciated the significance of knowing him. But, a song from the record would sometimes pop into my head after I came back to belief. Just the line “Not to us, oh Lord. But to thy Holy name give honour and glory.”

Now I know the record name, I have found it on youtube. For anyone interested in exploring old Christian ‘pop, rock or folk’ music, the YouTube channel CCM Preservation is a treasure trove.
