I can never get enough of the beauty of hymns. After the Word of God, hymns feed my soul like nothing else.
I recently read a comment by a woman who grew up in church, but had never heard the old hymn "Fairest Lord Jesus" until she was an adult, so I feel richly blessed that we sing hymns every week in our home fellowship. I also make it a point to sing and memorize hymns in our homeschool, and to play beautiful renditions of hymns in the house and in the car. (My sixteen-year-old daughter Kati also loves hymns and posts the words to a chosen hymn weekly on her blog.)
This lovely post that I came upon in Blogland puts into words some of my own thoughts about hymns and why I love them.
What are your favorite hymns?
