A to Z Challenge, My favorite Christian music starting with O.

Well I am back, after taking a day off with some great music.  So let's get started.


This first piece was a contemporary song when I first began my spiritual journey in 1982.  The song is"On Eagles Wings"  This version of this song is sung by Michael Crawford, who was The Phantom of the Opera in Andrew Lloyd Webber's musical pf The Phantom of the Opera.

This next piece is a traditional hymn that is still sung today, it is "Old Rugged Cross" Sung by Johnny and June Carter Cash.



This next song is not a Christian song but carries a very strong theme, it was composed and originally appeared on Pink Floyd's most recent album, The Division Bell, the song is "On the turning away and should be sung in every Christian Church,"  This version is sung by scattered people.\

Hello, well we start today with a new song to me, but it is one that I have come to love in just the first hearing of the song.  It is titled Magnificat and no it has nothing to do with kitties.



This next song by Matthew West is one that always helps me see past the moment I am in and makes me aware that God is always with me and working to make things better.  The song, "Mended"


Now another song that is a great song that every time I hear it, I just feel so positive as if nothing can or will stop me from achieving things.  The song  is "More than I can imagine."


The last song is one many of heard in the 1960's but some of us were unaware that it was a classic hymn.  The song, "Morning has Broken." and is sung by Cat Stevens.
