Logos Speaks shared a wonderful and interesting article on worship music. While there are some (relatively) modern Christian songs I love, I am partial to the old hymns. It’s what I grew up on, what “my church” continues to sing (with actual hymnals) and what I teach my children.
I love the old hymns, and this one is among my top five, though it is certainly difficult to choose favorites.
The melody is certainly pleasing, but the lyrics are what are so special and beautiful! I cannot sing it without smiling 🙂
