How Great Thou Art

This is the Day

ICompletelyKnowAboutGuineaPigs Sat 02-Jun-12 07:48:02

Come People of the Risen King by Keith and Kristyn Getty is lovely.

Oh Holy Night makes me cry every year!

SmileItsSunny Sat 02-Jun-12 08:12:27

Oh if we're talking Christmas Carols - I love most of them - Hark the Herald, o Little Town of Bethlehem, etc.

I like How Great Thou Art, but there's another one I came specifically on this thread to mention, and I've just forgotten the name. We had it at our wedding and it was sung on our first visit to our current church :-)

SmileItsSunny Sat 02-Jun-12 08:24:28

Be Thou My Vision - that's it! My absolute favourite.

stressedHEmum Sat 02-Jun-12 09:21:16

How deep the Father's Love for Us is my absolute favourite. Closely followed by In Christ Alone and Be Thou My Vision.

Shine Jesus Shine
I will offer up my Life
Here I am to Worship

SmileItsSunny Sun 03-Jun-12 21:19:43

Ooh I forgot - another great one is

'Tell Out My Soul'

BodyUnknown Sun 03-Jun-12 21:29:23

I'm LDS, my favourite hymns are Lead Kindly Light, Be Still My Soul, The Wintry Day Descending to its Close, Sweet Hour of Prayer, How Firm a Foundation, The Lord is my Light, I Need Thee Every Hour, Master the Tempest is Raging, I Stand All Amazed and I Know that my Redeemer Lives.

Hymns are enormously important to me in expressing my faith, I am not sure how many, if any, form part of the canon in non-LDS churches but if anyone is interested to hear them, this website lets you play and hear them all (subject to copyright restrictions on a few).

weegiemum Sun 03-Jun-12 21:31:48

Old hymns - either When I Survey The Wondrous Cross or Be Thou My Vision.

New hymns - in Christ Alone or Blessed Be Your Name.

Christmas carols - O Holy Night or It Came Upon The Midnight Clear: "oh hush the noise, ye men of strife, and hear the angels sing"

JERUSALEM

crescentmoon Sun 03-Jun-12 21:44:32

can i tell you a strange pleasure of mine? i love listening to gregorian chant, its peculiarly beautiful and i have a few favourite ones on youtube i tune into time to time.

i also love Warren Barfield's 'Love is not a Fight', to me its like amazing grace and has a message for everyone, not just christians.

Be Still For The Presence of the Lord is Shining all Around.

Always gets me..

Another vote for In Christ Alone.
Also like the hymn And Can It Be.
Currently listening to the album 10,000 Reasons.

BackforGood Tue 12-Mar-13 20:56:44

tuffie beat me to it - at the moment, I think 'Be Still for the Presence of the Lord...' is probably amongst my favourites, but you can never go wrong with traditionals such as 'Love Divine' smile

One more step along the road I go

I have seen the golden sunshine

Like a lazy coconut

To be a pilgrim

marjproops Tue 12-Mar-13 21:06:11

How could I forget Rock of Ages, cleft for me??????!!!!

and Make me a channel of your peace...although it is funny when everyone sings ''where there is darknessssssssssssss'' a-la Gollum!!!!

and I the lord of sea and sky...always gets me, it was a calling to obey God in something and that hymn was a 'fleece'.

Here I am Lord, is it I, Lord, I have heard you calling in the night, I will go Lord, where you lead me. (welling up now as I type this!)

onedev Tue 12-Mar-13 21:14:54

I love most of those mentioned here but my absolute favourite is Make Me a Channel of Your Peace.

Ducklings45 Wed 13-Mar-13 18:46:20

I love the modern version of 'to god be the glory' smile

Walk in the Light is so beautiful and so simple. Amazing Grace always brings on tears as reminds me of my aunt's funeral. Most highly favoured lady - on an album of winter songs by Sting
