Some of Your Favorite Hymns

Singing is an important part of our faith. Below are some favorite hymns from folks in our church and a little bit about why:

From Kyle Wlliams
Lord, You Come to the Lakeshore – Has a great soul message

From Steve Szumowski
O Come All Ye Faithful – so many warm memories of Christmas with family now long gone.
The Summons – verbalizes a “call” which is heard differently by everyone.

From Rhoda Woolman
Hymn of Promise – Spring is my favorite season.  The mystery and promise of God reveals itself as the earth springs to life.

From Bob Yee
How Great Thou Art – I love everything about it.  The message, the melody, the chords.  The world we live in is so overwhelming that he had to write a song about it.  His souls sings.

From Jane Hanson
In the Garden – It brings back memories of sitting in church between my mother and grandmother “Mimi.” Mimi loved her garden and her roses, and especially this hymn.  Singing together is a special memory

From Alice Lonoff
It is Well with my Soul – I just think it helps reminds me that even when everything is upside down – the important thing is our relationship with God – and if that is good, everything else will get in order.

This is the Day that the Lord has made, Let us Rejoice and be Glad in it.   When I used to trudge from the train to a job I was not particularly happy at, I would sing this to myself.  It helped put me in a better frame of mind.

Morning Has Broken – just a beautiful song.  Always puts me in a great frame of mind.  I think I may want this sung at my funeral (whether or not appropriate!)

Not all the favorites were hymns!  Watch future edevotionals for other songs that stir our souls!
