This web site is dedicated to bring praise and glory through hymns, songs and inspirational stories to our Heavenly Father. He has sent His Son who wonderfully saved us from our sins by His saving grace to the glory of God the Father.
The latest news. All Video Hymns are also in MP4 format so that they can be played or streamed on most, if not all, web browsers. Please look up the menu item above called MP4 Video Hymns. The existing Video Hymns files are WMV files which can still be downloaded and will remain on the website. (PS, I am changing all WMV Video files to MP4 HD Files which will have a much better picture and should be compatible with most browsers, but it will take some time to do them all)
Jack And Marlene Dorrestyn were inspired to build this site for video hymns with synchronised lyrics and songs of worship and inspirational thoughts and stories, and will include video hymns and songs for streaming or downloading purposes. To download songs or video’s, right hand click on video or song and place curser on “Save Target as” from dropdown list and click and save to your files. To play files left hand click.(some internet connections may take a little longer to open files for playing or downloading). Over time the video hymn songs with synchronised lyrics and music files will grow and if you contact us by email we will place video hymns or hymn music by request on our website.
Speaking to one another with psalms, hymns, and songs from the Spirit. Sing and make music from your heart to the Lord, Ephesians 5:19

What Jesus knew
Before launching any project to promote change in the community, public relations experts do thorough research. Jesus did this in preparing for His own public ministry.
First, at 12 years of age He probed current theological thought in Israel, “sitting in the midst of the teachers, both listening to them and asking them questions. All who heard Him were astonished at His understanding and answers.” Luke 2.42,46.
Second, at the outset of His ministry He rightly assessed humanity: “Jesus . . . had no need that anyone should testify of man, for He knew what was in man.” John 2.25.
He therefore understood the true source of sin.
He said, “From within, out of the heart of men, proceed evil thoughts, adulteries, fornications, murders, thefts, covetousness, wickedness, deceit, licentiousness, an evil eye, blasphemy, pride, foolishness. All these evil things come from within and defile a man.” Mark 7.21-23.
Third, He foresaw that the religious leaders (the Pharisees) would reject Him. Mark 2.21-22. So He must “start again.” He would use a small team of twelve men.
Fourth, He saw the people of Israel were “like sheep not having a shepherd.” Mark 6.34. But would they accept him as the Good Shepherd? John 10.11.
