Thanks Camille
my email is camillebecker@embarqmail.com
One of the most beloved and well known voices for this song is George Beverly Shea, who was still singing and traveling with the Billy Graham crusades in the 1970's, as far as I know of. However, if you just want to hear it without buying anything, look for this title on YouTube: In Times Like These https://youtu.be/l982neCQiXo . There is also a lovely acappella redition here: https://youtu.be/j3jK3x3iMOM

Alternatively, it is in a lot of old hymn books. Find one that has it in it, and have your church pianist play it for you. I hope she/he can read music!

As a last resort, I can record this myself since I am a church pianist.

Thank you so much for your comments, Ed. It's always thrilling when a family member of a hymn writer visits, especially a hymn as iconic as this one.

If you have any stories behind how your grandmother came to write this amazing hymn we'd love to hear them! :)

God bless,
Steve

Wow, very nice to read all the comments on my Grandmother’s hymn “In Times Like These”, but I’m fine with whatever name you want to call it as long as there is a meaning there for you and Jesus as your Savior. My Aunt Carol Jones Saint is still operating “A Visit With The Jones” out of Erie, Pa and would surely reply to all who write. God Bless, Ed Jones

"In Times Like These" or "The Solid Rock" or whatever the name of it is, it's a very excellent song. My dad is 91 and remembered singing it several years back. It's wonderful.

Jesus is my Solid Rock, am very sure of that by His grace, and I have the Bible, and have determined not to be idle,but purposed to daily serve Him. Praise the Lord, Hallelujah, Amen.

today I saw a creek,an upright tree wtraight across it a fallen tree, forming a perfect cross; next to it was a huge rock with a cleftin the middle at the bottom.
The words to this beautiful hymn came immediately to mind. It was a sacred, beautiful holy and moving experience.

I was thinking of my special grandfather who has been in heaven now for over twenty years. This was his favorite song and since my siblings and I were young girls, he paid us each a quarter every time we would sing this for him and he requested it often, especially at family reunions and when company would stop by to visit. I was looking up the lyrics to make sure I was remembering them correctly and happened upon your site. What a blessing to find out about the woman who wrote this song and also to read the comments from others who also find this song to be special to them. Thank You!
