A church in my local area is having a 10 hour singathon.
The last hour or so is everyone favorite hymn.
What's your favorite hymn? :whistle:

Lords Day Hymn

If you don't recognize it by name (I wouldn't if I hadn't really come to love the words) then it is the hymn that starts out "Before the Throne of God above, I have a strong and perfect plea."

Rock of Ages
Augustus M. Toplady, 1740-1778

"Rock of Ages, cleft for me,
let me hide myself in thee;
let the water and the blood,
from thy wounded side which flowed,
be of sin the double cure;
save from wrath and make me pure.

"Not the labors of my hands
can fulfill thy law's commands;
could my zeal no respite know,
could my tears forever flow,
all for sin could not atone;
thou must save, and thou alone.

"Nothing in my hand I bring,
simply to the cross I cling;
naked, come to thee for dress;
helpless, look to thee for grace;
foul, I to the fountain fly;
wash me, Savior, or I die.

"While I draw this fleeting breath,
when mine eyes shall close in death,
when I soar to worlds unknown,
see thee on thy judgment throne,
Rock of Ages, cleft for me,
let me hide myself in thee."

Here is a favorite Rock of Ages on You Tube. It's the way it was sung in the little church I used to attend. Sure brings back fond memories of that small church with about 12 people on Sunday mornings and 2.5 hour services.

Huh ...I just realized the 2nd In Christ There is No East or West doesn't play...first time that ever happened. Well, as a child my favorite was:

I couldn't find a choral version I liked on "In Christ there is no east or west" but here's a version I hadn't heard before:


I was tuned on to Celtic Women on youtube by Moderator at Christmas.

All are excellent...Jerusalem is a particular favorite of mine.
Celtic women is very good from the list above.
The singathon starts tomorrow - anyone got any more?
Be interesting to see what the people's choice is as the church. Hopefully its some from the above list.

what a great idea I must suggest this for my church!

Jesus Loves Me
Come all ye faithful - any carols are always good
some more

Celtic women also do rousing one of the First Noel
All glory - women of faith sing this too. This is more a praise song than a hymn
When I survey the wondrous Cross
Be thou my vision

everyone knows Shout to the Lord
Mighty to Save
This is the day the Lord has made
The Spirit of the Lord

I think you can sing the whole psalms..
When the saints go marching in

The seekers do a lot of gospel songs
Kumbaya
Walk with me
Come the Day
Open up them pearly gates
We shall not be moved
This little light of mine

Get Happy
