Dean Phelps sings this traditional English children's carol for Christmas, with lyrics written by Frances Alice Chesterton, (1875-1938). We invite you to sing along.
The video is set to paintings from around the world showing scenes of the nativity and Jesus' life and life today.…
We invite you to listen or sing along with us on this old gospel favorite, written by Albert E. Brumley and recorded by Dean Phelps. We've added photos, scripture and words to Dean's recording from his CD, Going Over Home (1997), especially for our online viewers.
This song is a powerful one that many find comforting and reassuring at the time of the death of a loved one, or as their own death nears. If you have found this song under these circumstances, we offer our sincere prayers for you; we've produced this video as part of our ministry for people during such trying times. We give permission to use this in a worshipful manner, including in a memorial or funeral setting, but it is not for resale.
All of our work at DisciplesNet is offered free so that cost is less likely to be a barrier, but it does cost us to produce each video, and we are so grateful for ones who've made contributions that have made sharing this video and global ministry possible. If you would like to make a one time or ongoing contribution to help us make and share more videos like this, please visit our website at www.disciplesnet.org.
You can also email us at firstname.lastname@example.org, with questions, comments, or contributions.
We are grateful to pastor and musician Dean Phelps for permission to use his recording here. Find this and more of Dean's work at deanphelpsmusic.com. The CD Going Over Home is out of print, but the songs are available for download on his site.
Thanks for joining us! And may God's healing and uplifting presence be with you this day and for all eternity.

DisciplesNet Church invites you a special time of peaceful listening to 50 minutes of Christmas hymns and carols, played one after another on piano by Beverly Carmichael Heid. Bev (last name pronounced "hide") knows what it is like to have health challenges and other struggles. In such times, Bev finds cheer in bringing it to others with reminders of God's love and the light of Christ for each person.
In this sense, DisciplesNet Church brings you this gift from Bev and our online church, including those who give gifts to keep this ministry growing, and connecting with people around the world. We hope listening to the video will bring a sense of the peace and the love of the Christmas season to all who listen
Some ideas for this video are playing these songs in the background as you work and prepare for Christmas, when trying to settle in after a busy day, or to bring a sense of hope and peace if you are facing struggles or are in pain yourself. If you know someone who is very ill, maybe nearing the end of their days, our longer videos are often a source of comfort. So, share this around! And God bless you.
