Hundreds of patrons are experiencing stirring hymns, personal, and evocative testimonies and laughter at Hymnspeak currently underway at St Mary's Anglican Church.

Nothing But The Blood is the theme for the 13th edition of event which is part of Gospelfest, on this week in Barbados.

The congregation and choir, directed by host Rev. Dr. Mikie Roberts, is full of praise as they hear and sing from a selection that includes Jesus Christ is risen today, In Christ Alone, The strife is o'er, Low in the grave he lay, and What can wash away my sins. 

On a night full of praise and prayer Roberts said "whatever the result" of Thursday's elections, come Friday morning "the blood of Christ". (GBM)
