My Top “100” Congregational Hymns
Compiled is my top 100 Hymns (actually, I couldn’t stop, so ended up with 113). In an effort to be relevant, most of them are from the Hymn Book we currently use at our church, Living Hymns. I put a star beside my all time most favorite hymns. These are not my favorites because of sentimentality or familiarity (although most are very familiar), but they are my favorite because the doctrine is correct, the theology is rich, and the music is glorifying to God. Granted, some have more depth than others and some are my favorites because they have touched my heart deeply at some point in my life. But it is my persuasion, that to know these 113 hymns (all the verses) would greatly enrich private and corporate worship of God’s church.
There are more hymns that are wonderful, many of them found in a variety of hymn books. I compiled this list for our church, so obviously, I chose hymns found within the book that we use in our gathered worship. What are you favorite hymns and why?
