Are you holy, holy, holy?
Singing hymns is a wonderful way to stay close to God. It is different than just sitting in on a sermon or reading scripture in the bible. Singing words of worship to a melody somehow makes the greatest impact on people who believe in the Lord. Be Thou My Vision is a hymn that was written by Dallán Forgaill in Ireland sometime during the 6th Century. The lyrics say: "Be Thou my vision, O Lord of my heart. Naught be all else to me, save that Thou art. Thou my best thought, by day or by night / Waking or sleeping, Thy presence my light." How gorgeous is this old-fashioned language? All Creatures Of our God and King is another beloved hymn that was written by St. Francis of Assisi in Italy during the year 1225. the lyrics say: "All creatures of our God and King. Lift up your voice and with us sing. Alleluia! Alleluia!… Praise, praise the Father, praise the Son / And praise the Spirit, Three in One!" What a lovely hymn about praise and worship. To God Be The Glory is the third hymn we will mention here and it was written by Fanny Crosby in New York City, USA during the year 1872. The lyrics say: "To God be the glory, great things He hath done. So loved He the world that He gave us His Son. Who yielded His life our redemption to win. And opened the life-gate that all may go in." Hymns about God's sacrifice are so heartfelt! Now, although none of the aforementioned hymns will be included on this fun hymnal quiz, you still have an idea of what to expect!
