About

I collect hymnals and one day I posted a favorite hymn on Facebook. My friends liked this so much that I continued to post a hymn every day except Sunday. The format was not the best for the material, so I have started this blog where I can post hymns more easily.

Although choruses and more modern hymns have a place in today’s worship, I believe that we should not lose the past. Older hymns tell us much about how our predecessors thought and felt about their faith.

Since many of the older hymns are no longer in print, if you would like the music to a particular one I will be glad to scan and post it. Also, language changes through time. What may seem like a mis-spelling is probably how the original reads.

Thanks for stopping by!

  1. I can’t begin to describe how much it means to me that you not only approve of Kelly, but also support our relationship, and continually offer support and guidance to us. It means the world to me that I have “done well” in the eyes of my parents, and I strive to continue to make you both proud. I love you.

  2. I love the old hymns. I love to sing all the verses all day long. I love to hear music when I can understand the words and the words bring praise and glory to God.

    I am new to the blog world, I am glad I found you today.

    1. Thank you! I have another blog that is about my life and thoughts. In it, I have recently been talking about my daughter’s recent surgery. When she is in pain or afraid, sometimes the only thing that calms her is my singing hymns. I suppose she recalls to some extent my rocking her and singing when she was a baby. If you want to look at the other blog, it is called “In the Ensuing Panic”. Thanks, again!

  3. I have discovered your blog through another link. So good to see you preserving the old hymns. One that I found only a few years ago is Lo, He Comes with Clouds Descending with the tune Helmsly. I posted this on my blog a few weeks ago. I look forward to seeing your posts.
