What’s Your Favorite Hymn?

See the source image

We like to start every blogging day here with a hymn, and I like to post the hymns that you request. When left to my own devices, I’m afraid I tend to repeat myself and choose the same relatively few hymns again and again–because they’re my favorites. Light of the World, Hyfrydol, To Be a Pilgrim: well, what can I say?

I’d love to know what your favorite hymns are. I know it’s impossible to pick just one, so please feel free to list as many as you like.

I’ll keep track of the ones that are mentioned and will report to you which hymns seem to be the most popular. Don’t be bashful! If you only knew how hard it is to elicit a wide reader response… you’d wonder why I try. But I’m really interested in what you all have to say.

  1. The first one that popped into my mind when I read your question was
    Amazing Grace. However, I have many more loved hymns and worship songs. I’ll mention some more on another post.

  2. The Love of God.
    Be Still My Soul.
    Precious Memories.
    Oh To Be Like Thee.
    What A Friend.
    I’d Rather Have Jesus.
    There is a Fountain.

    I’m forgetting sooooo many that I love!

  3. Holy God, We Praise Thy Name.
    In the Garden.
    O God Our Help in Ages Past.
    O Sacrament Most Holy.
    Faith of Our Fathers.
    Panis Angelicus.
    Too Close to the Mirror.
    Holy, Holy, Holy.
    The Old Rugged Cross.
    …. and those are just the ones that occurred to me at the moment. I’m sure I’ll think of lots more.

  4. Good question!

    Be Thou My Vision
    Praise to the Lord, the Almighty
    Stand Up, Stand Up For Jesus
    Crown Him With Many Crowns
    A Mighty Fortress is Our God
    Holy, Holy, Holy
    Amazing Grace
    Let All Mortal Flesh Keep Silence
    Blessed Assurance
    To Be a Pilgrim
    Go Tell it on the Mountain

    (Let me catch my breath for a moment…)

    Beneath the Cross of Jesus
    Near the Cross
    At the Cross
    There is a Fountain
    The Old Rugged Cross
    Before the Throne of God Above
    Christ the Lord is Risen Today
    Low in the Grave He Lay
    In Christ Alone

    (Let me stop here before I end up typing all the songs from the Trinity Hymnal!)

    1. Believe me, I understand. And all the hymns that everybody’s mentioned so far (40 of them now) are going to be posted.

  5. I Know that my Redeemer Lives
    Thy Strong Word
    A Mighty Fortress is our God
    Jesus Priceless Treasure
    O Sons and Daughters of the King
