This week, much to the relief our our fellow church members, we received our first family hymnal! Our family don't know many hymn's...this is something that we have been seeking to rectify. Of course both Brian and I remember some from our childhoods; but even so, we want to sing praise day and night, solo and together, in the car and in the shower...a hard thing to do when you only know a couple of children's hymns!
We ordered our hymnal and its accompanying "music edition" from Amazon at a very good price. Immediately Amy and I went through it, trying to find some of our favourites from church. Amy was so great at spotting them and remembering how the melody went also!
Just yesterday I finally cleaned off our whiteboard, ready to write a hymn out for us to learn, plus our weekly memory verse. I can't wait to know lots of them all by heart...one of my favourites is the classic "How Great Thou Art! What a beautiful hymn!
Do you have any favourite hymn's in your home?
My lips shall greatly rejoice when I sing unto thee; and my soul,
which thou hast redeemed. ~ Psalms 71:23
