The Old One Hundredth

Writing my 100th hub eight months after joining hub pages may not set any records but I am proud of this achievement.

In fact if I hadn't deleted a couple of hubs this would be my 103rd hub. I have several half written titles that I thought would be up by now but as I considered what was appropriate for the 100th I remembered an old hymn tune that, when I first heard it as a child, would make the hairs on the back of my neck stand up.

Written in 1500's the tune is perhaps one of the best known within the Christian Religion. It's slow and delibarate melody sets the pace for prayer and worship in a reverent and majestic manner. The tune is often used as a doxology (a short hymn of praise) at the end of prayers and canticles. These words were written by Thomas Ken in 1674:

Praise God, from whom all blessings flow,

Praise Him, all creatures here below,

Praise Him abovem ye heavenly host,

Praise Father Sone and Holy Ghost.

Both 134 and Psalm 100 have been translated and are commonly used as lyrics to the melody.

Psalm 100 was sung at the Coronation of Elizabeth 11 in 1953 and arranged by the composer Vaughan Williams. The following clip includes scenes from her recent Diamond Jubilee and 1953 Coronation in Westminster Abbey.

Brian Aldiss has wrote a short science fiction story called Old Hundredth in which the protagonist seeks redemtion in an afterlife. For more about this go to

The tune still makes my hairs stand up, as do the beauty of the words of the psalms. They bring to my mind a world full of creative and joyous people dancing, singing and praising their God in diversity, love and harmony. Amen.

      I love the doxology! Every Sunday it is one of my favorite parts of the service and I never tire of it in the least.

      Congratulations on your 100th Hub. God Bless You.

      Congratulations on reaching the 100 hub milestone! I can't even imagine reaching that goal because I take so long to complete mine. The video was beautiful and gave me chills. Keep writing!

      Congratulations! That's a number to be proud of (even if you had to delete 3) and to toot your horn over. I love the hymn, this version had a lot of grand music and voices -- beautiful.

      Very inspiring and motivational hub. What a great piece in attaining peace and simplicity. I enjoyed this one--perfect read on this Thanksgiving Day, while waiting for my turkey to get done. And, if you're celebrating Canadian Thanksgiving day, have a bountiful one!

      Voting up and beautiful.

      Love from the sky~
