My favorite hymn is #29, but it’s not worth it unless you sing all of the verses. (A Poor Wayfaring Man of Grief)
I also love the creation hymns.]]>
Yeah, I’d LOVE to have a meeting like this. Do you make sure there are different songs every year or no? It’d be great to do something that gets people to expand their hymnal horizons by coming to learn and appreciate more songs they are not familiar with. Some of my lesser known favorites include #115 “Come Ye Disconsolate” and #9 “Come, Rejoice.”
I almost think “Come Thou Fount” has gained in popularity since it was taken out of the hymnbook. Still, you have not really heard it till you hear the Mack Wilburg arrangement.
Some I wish were in the hymnbook: “Amazing Grace,” “What Child is This?” anything in a minor or modal key and “When First the Glorious Light of Truth.”]]>
