I. What is a hymn?
“… a poem, designed for group
singing, and written as a sequence
of identical units called stanzas.
Each stanza has the same line
length, rhythms and rhyme scheme
as its predecessor, so that the hymn
can be sung, stanza by stanza, to
the same tune.” – Brian Wren
Wren, Brian. Praying Twice: The Music and Words of Congregational Song. Louisville, KY: Westminster John Knox
Press, 2000. pg. 100.
I. What is a hymn?
Holy Holy Holy
1. Holy holy holy
Lord God Almighty
Early in the morning
Our song shall rise to Thee
Holy holy holy
Merciful and mighty
God in three persons
Blessed Trinity

3. Holy holy holy
Though the darkness hide Thee
Though the eye of sinful man
Thy glory may not see
Only Thou art holy
There is none beside Thee
Perfect in power
In love and purity
I. What is a hymn?
“Great indeed, we confess, is the mystery of godliness:
He was manifested in the flesh,
vindicated by the Spirit,
seen by angels,
proclaimed among the nations,
believed on in the world,
taken up in glory.”
1 Timothy 3:16 (ESV)
I. What is a hymn?
Great Is The Gospel
2. Great is the mystery of godliness, (1 Tim 3:16)
Great is the work of God’s own holiness,
It moves my soul, and causes me to long
For greater joys than to the earth belong
3. The Spirit vindicated Christ our Lord,
And angels sang with joy and sweet accord;
The nations heard, a dark world flamed with light –
When Jesus rose in glory and in might

B. We need wings from the formative power of the
gospel.
“Run, run, the law commands
But gives us neither feet nor hands.
Far better news the gospel brings
It bids us fly and gives us wings.”

• “I faced it all and I stood tall and I did it my way”
II. Why do we need hymns today?
Jesus I My Cross Have Taken
1. Jesus, I my cross have taken,
All to leave and follow Thee.
Destitute, despised, forsaken,
Thou from hence my all shall be.
Perish every fond ambition,
All I’ve sought or hoped or known.
Yet how rich is my condition!
God and heaven are still my own.
Henry Lyte. Public Domain. CCLI License # 42775

Thou Lovely Source of True Delight
1. Thou lovely source of true delight
Whom I unseen adore
Unveil Thy beauties to my sight
That I might love Thee more.

II. Why do we need hymns today?
Come Thou Fount
3. O to grace how great a debtor
Daily I’m constrained to be!
Let Thy goodness, like a fetter,
Bind my wandering heart to Thee.
Prone to wander, Lord, I feel it,
Prone to leave the God I love;
Here’s my heart, O take and seal it,
Seal it for Thy courts above.
Robert Robinson. Public Domain. CCLI License # 42775
II. Why do we need hymns today?

And contemplate Your ways.
I will delight in Your statutes;
I will not forget Your word.”
– Psalm 119:15–16 (NKJV)

When I Survey
1. When I survey the wondrous cross
on which the Prince of glory died,
my richest gain I count but loss,
and pour contempt on all my pride.
Isaac Watts. Public Domain. CCLI License # 42775
“But far be it from me to boast except in the cross
of our Lord Jesus Christ, by which the world has
been crucified to me, and I to the world.” –
Galatians 6:14 (ESV)

after the Sacred Scriptures,
the next best companion for
the soul is a good hymnal.”

Questions/Reflection
When I survey the wondrous cross
On which the Prince of glory died,
My richest gain I count but loss,
And pour contempt on all my pride.
Isaac Watts. Public Domain. CCLI License # 42775
Forbid it, Lord, that I should boast,
Save in the death of Christ my God!
All the vain things that charm me most,
I sacrifice them to his blood.
Isaac Watts. Public Domain. CCLI License # 42775
See from his head, his hands, his feet,
Sorrow and love flow mingled down!
Did e'er such love and sorrow meet,
Or thorns compose so rich a crown!
Isaac Watts. Public Domain. CCLI License # 42775
[His dying crimson1, like a robe,
Spreads o'er his body on the tree:
Then am I dead to all the globe,
And all the globe is dead to me.]
Isaac Watts. Public Domain. CCLI License # 42775
1. blood
Were the whole realm of nature mine,
That were a present far too small;
Love so amazing, so divine,
Demands my soul, my life, my all.
Isaac Watts. Public Domain. CCLI License # 42775
“We will not hide them from their children, but
tell to the coming generation the glorious deeds
of the Lord, and his might, and the wonders
that he has done.”
– Psalm 78:4 (ESV)
