Favourite Hymns

OK, in an attempt to get us all to chill out (and to see how many people actually read this), a non controversial topic.

What’s your favourite hymn or worship song? Simply give us the name of the hymn and, if possible, stick in your comment the URL to a version on Youtube. The commenting system will then magically put the video in your comment and we can share your joy.

Carping and criticising other people’s choice is strictly forbidden. Let’s share the love!

My choice? Alleluia, Sing to Jesus – a combination of superb Christology and precise Sacramentology. Go Dix!

    Can I add another?

    The Day thou gavest Lord, is ended.

    • Tom Jones

      I agree. Evening hymns are particularly soothing to the spirit, as Guglilmo’s Resta Con Noi, Signore, La Sera well exemplifies.

    • James McLaren

      Works even better if you do it to the tune of The Internationale.

      Mind you, We rest on thee… works better to the tune of the Horst Wessel Lied, proving eloquently that God is above politics and has a nice sense of humour.

    Can we have Jerusalem? Come on, it’s theological, da bomb, and even better than the UK’s more ‘official anthems’!

      I suspect you’re just not taking this seriously.

      • cerebusboy

        Come on, name ONE other name on this thread who’s ahead of William Blake in the artistic canon?

  • James McLaren

    Proper hymns, eh? Mine would be How shall I sing that majesty to Ken Naylor’s tune Coe Fen.

Paulinus of York
God our Saviour, who sent Paulinus to preach and to baptize, and so to build up your Church in this land: grant that, inspired by his example, we may tell all the world of your truth, that with him we may receive the reward you prepare for all your faithful servants; through Jesus Christ your Son our Lord, who is alive and reigns with you, in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God, now and for ever.

Two Final Things

Aber mit der Heimat
geht man immer herum,
durch die Welt,
dort und dort
Peter Handke

No one could describe
the Word of the Father;
but when He took flesh from you, O Theotokos,
He consented to be described, and restored the fallen image to its former beauty.
We confess and proclaim our salvation in word and image.
