Great Hymns of the Faith

A right understanding of the Gospel is prevalent in the old hymns written by people who knew the God of Heaven. I believe that is why they endure.

"The Music of His Promises" ~ Elisabeth Elliot ~ "The promises of God will lift me right out of sad sentimentality & put music in my mouth if I will think steadily on them. Let the promise be the song you sing. He will hear it & make it true for you." E.E.

Julia W. Howe in 1861 was listening to some soldiers sing a song called "John Brown's Body". It inspired her to pen the words to what we know as "The Battle Hymm of the Republic". We were coming out of the Civil War, where many perished on both sides, and we were mending the nation. When performed with a full orchestra, and choir, is something that will give you chills

"Am I a Soldier of the Cross" ~ Isaac Watts

Richard S. Willis ~ Arranged Music for "Fairest Lord Jesus" (1819-1900)

Samuel John Stone ~ "The Church’s One Foundation" Lyrics (1839-1900)

Will L. Thompson ~ "Softly and Tenderly Jesus is Calling" (1847-1909)

"God Will Take Care of You"

Safe am I, Safe am I, In the hollow of His hand; Sheltered o'er, sheltered o'er With His love forever more No ill can harm me, No foe alarm me, For He keeps both day and night, Safe am I, Safe am I, In the hollow of His hand.
