Humble Hymns

I am so in the mood for hymns...not sure what has led me to this place as I never attended a very conservative hymn singing church - perhaps it was all those hymn singing practices at Arundel?! Nevertheless, whatever the reason, I am finding such solitude and solace in the words and tunes of the ancients. It's really amazing to me how many hymns have been reworked with a modern feel (does that tell you how out of touch I am with the modern world of music?!). Sighing in my spirit!

And did you know that the most famous hymn of all time, "Amazing Grace", was writen by a former slave trader? Just blows my mind how lives can be so truly transformed.
