Great Tools for Learning Hymns and Learning About Hymn Writers

15 Jul

This evening at Howick Baptist Church we are going to be holding a “Hymn Sing.” This is a great time as a church family when we gather together to learn more about some of the influential hymns of the Christian Faith and their writers along with the joy of lifting our voices in united praise to our Great God and Saviour.

I thought I might list here some helpful tools for those who would like to learn hymns or learn more about their writers.

Two essential reference works are:

Then Sings My Soul: 150 of the World’s Greatest Hymn Stories

&

Then Sings My Soul, Book 2: 150 of the World’s Greatest Hymn Stories

In addition we’ve just started reading this series by Douglas Bond as a family(We love everything written by Bond. He is an excellent writer, theologically sound, historically accurate, and engaging – whether for children or adults.):

Mr Pipes And The British Hymn Makers

    Joe, do you know the British hymnal called “Praise!”? I first enjoyed using it via its website
    Praise!, but later bought a hard copy. The website has great hymns and terrific articles about the hymnwriters and their hymns, too
