Great Hymns

We are blessed with a true treasure in the great hymns of our faith. These hymns have been loved and passed down through many generations because of the depth of meaning that their poetry holds. So often I find myself just singing automatically and ignoring the words, because I know the hymns by heart. However, when I stop to actually pay attention, I find they express so many of the great themes of the Bible in words far clearer than I could.

Many hymns have helped me praise my Lord, have convicted me, and have taught me lessons. This is my collection of notes on a few hymns. My goal here is to help you to slow down and really think about the words.
