I grew up attending the Church of God in Bristow, OK. Shout out. We sang hymns every single Sunday. And Sunday night. And Wednesday night.... minus the occasional special song from the Baker Trio or the Men's Quartet! And to this day, I LOVE singing Hymns. Now don't get me wrong, I'm all about modern day worship songs, but there's something special about the classic hymns.
Ken Coleman and I recently asked our listeners on the Catalyst Podcast what their favorite hymns of all time were, and we got a lot of responses. Lots of different responses.
So I wanted to bring it up here as well... What are your top hymns of all time?
Here's my top ten:
1. Nothing But the Blood
2. Amazing Grace
3. It is Well With My Soul
4. Jesus Paid it All
5. When I Survey the Wondrous Cross
6. Victory in Jesus
7. Blessed Assurance
8. All Hail the Power of Jesus Name
9. How Great Thou Art
10. a. Come Thou Fount
10. b. Holy Holy Holy
And if you are looking for a GREAT album that includes the classic hymns, check out Page CXVI and their collection of songs. Highly recommended.
How about you? What are your favorite hymns?
