Jerusalem and The Lord's my Shepherd. Amazing Grace is also lovely, especially on the bagpipes!

Oh, too many to name!

Favourite favourites include 'Alleluia, sing to Jesus' and 'I heard the voice of Jesus say.' 'Be thou my vision' is up there too.

Christmas carols: my favourite is 'Of the Father's Love Begotten', followed by 'See Amid the Winter's Snow'.

And for Easter, you can't beat IMHO a good 'Thine be the Glory.'

CrescentMoon, I love Gregorian chant too. You're right, it is peculiarly beautiful. We sing a bit of plainsong at my church and I love it very much. smile

Happy Easter everyone! Celebrate well! smile

Cant wait to sing 'Thine be the glory, risen conquering son' tomorrow!

LOVE these rousing praise hymns

got the hymn numbers for tomorrows service and we're also singing 'he has risen' (Noel Richards)
and 'lift high the cross'.

yes!!!!

"o Holy Night", I could listen to that over and over, I don't even mind that it is a Christmas tune.

"I vow to thee my country".

"majesty, king of kings". They used to sing that in my old church, no piano, no organ, just everyone belting out the chorus. Sniff. I miss my old church!!

'Hosanna' Hillsong

Amazing Grace (My chains are gone), the Chris Tomlin version and Happy Day, the Tim Hughes version. Winners of songs and I love them smile

I like 'Bless the Lord oh my soul (10,000 Reasons)' at the moment.

I always like the hymns And Can it Be, When I Survey, Jesus the name high over all, Oh Lord my God, and loads more.

More modern favourites are In Christ Alone, Hosanna (Praise is Rising), Mighty to Save, Your Grace is Enough, and also loads more.

I'm always changing favourites!

debtherat I love Jars of clays version of most highly. gorgeous harmonies on it. Id love to hear the Sting version, with his husky vocal must sound really ethereal..

I used to be part of the worship group as singer and guitarist and every single time we sang that I could NEVER get the line and always ALWAYS, into a mic, sang 'most highly FLAVOURED lady'!!

i also love 'father i place into your hands'...a hymn Im singing to myself often these days!

debtherat Mon 18-Mar-13 00:53:53

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

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

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

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.

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!)

One more step along the road I go

I have seen the golden sunshine

Like a lazy coconut

To be a pilgrim

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

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

tuffie Tue 12-Mar-13 20:40:42

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

Always gets me..

marjproops Tue 12-Mar-13 18:01:52

Too Many!! Im in the worship group at church and always want them all!!

old- Lift high the cross.
And can it be

modern- almost anything by Graham Kendrick, especially Amazing love

Light of the word-(here I am to worship)
In Christ alone

Easter- Thine be the Glory risen conquering Son

Christmas- Born in the night, Mary's child
Cliff's version of O little town of Bethlehem

and like a million more!!

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.

JERUSALEM

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"

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).

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

Ooh I forgot - another great one is

'Tell Out My Soul'
