Modern Hymns

As Thanksgiving approaches I am thankful for Hymns.  One of my favorites is Come thou Fount of Every Blessing written by Robert Robinson in the 1700’s.  I sing it for my children when no one else is around.  The word hymn derives from Greek ὕμνος(hymnos), which means “a song of praise.” We within Christianity have a firm history of treasured hymns but at some point some believers saw the book as complete and no need to seek out new editions or even additions.  My ears hear amazing testament to God in modern times and I even come across what some would call secular (non-religous) songs and I see a crying out for God or at least an acknowledgment for something far more than ourselves.  One of my latest praise songs is, I will wait by Mumford and Sons.  Listen to it and let me know where you land.

I pray that you find God as He is still moving within our world and that He will move you no matter what style of music you like.
