Our Favorite Hymns

Make a joyful noise to the Lord, all the earth. Worship the Lord with gladness; come into his presence with singing. Psalm 100:1-2

We made a joyful noise on February 2, singing many hymns you voted for in our Favorite Hymn poll. The top vote-getter was “I Know That My Redeemer Lives.” All of the following hymns were selected as a favorite by at least one member of the congregation:

Favorite Hymn Sunday

“Since Christ is Lord of heaven and earth, how can I keep from singing?”

On Sunday, February 2, we are celebrating the ways in which we use music to worship God. Because hymns are such a big part of that, we want to include some of the congregation’s favorites. We’ll tally them up and sing our favorites on 2/2!
