  1. I love all these hymns and think I sung them all in the church growing up and love them. Just reading the titles give me encouragement.

    If I were building a home I would sing and hope this was my contractor’s hymn:
    The Church’s one foundation
    is Jesus Christ her Lord;
    she is his new creation,
    by water and the word:
    from heaven he came and sought her
    to be his holy bride;
    with his own blood he bought her,
    and for her life he died.

    Elect from every nation,
    yet one o’er all the earth,
    her charter of salvation,
    one Lord, one faith, one birth;
    one holy Name she blesses,
    partakes one holy food,
    and to one hope she presses,
    with every grace endued.

    Words: Samuel John Stone, 1868

  2. These are very clever and as I read through them, I thought each one had a message or mini-lesson in it. Thanks Becky and Sara for sharing.

  3. I’d like to add a title – The Evangelist Song

    Go, Tell it on the Mountain by John Work, Jr.

    I use to have my Sunday School students sing this song every Sunday as they left my class. I changed it a little to say

    Now go tell it on the mountain
    Over the hills and everywhere you go
    Go tell it on the mountain
    That Jesus Christ lives.

    The orginial reads as follows:

    Refrain

    Go, tell it on the mountain,
    Over the hills and everywhere
    Go, tell it on the mountain,
    That Jesus Christ is born.

    While shepherds kept their watching
    Over silent flocks by night
    Behold throughout the heavens
    There shone a holy light.

    Refrain

    The shepherds feared and trembled,
    When lo! above the earth,
    Rang out the angels chorus
    That hailed the Savior’s birth.

    Refrain

    Down in a lowly manger
    The humble Christ was born
    And God sent us salvation
    That blessèd Christmas morn.

    Refrain

  4. How about these I made up……

    I want to be (like Jesus)
