I like all of these that you have mentioned, as well as some newer one's like I Can Only Imagine, by Mercy Me. Wish I could come up with a few more of my favorites. But it has been a long week, and my brain is a bit tired to think of any more at the moment.

"I Can Only Imagine" is a wonderful song! I am so glad that the radio station that I listen a lot to plays that song! They play mostly secular music, but that is one song they do play a lot! I love it!

A guy in my church sings that song for a special. You just feel the Lord in the service.

Yes I have heard that one. Zukepr mentioned that one being one she remembered. There are so many. I have a hymnbook here from church and I was just looking thru it and found some that I really love.

LOL - ok now you've got me singing. Home alone tonight so guess it doesn't matter but I'm just going down your list seeing how many of them I know the words to. Only one I can't place is 'Our Help in Ages Past'. Going to have to check into that one... Unless you wanna sing it for me :)

O God our Help in ages past, Our Hope for years to come. (I forget a lot of the words right now. I don't have my hymnal with me!) And our Eternal Home!

How about the hymn "In the Sweet By and By"? I really like that hymn because it helps me to get my focus off what is happening here and now, and onto what the future (eternity in heaven) will hold. I can't imagine that Christianity would be quite the same without hymns like that.

I like your list and here are a few more that I would add: There is sunshine in my heart Precious Lord take my hand Joyful, joyful we adore Thee Rock of Ages Just a closer walk with Thee Oh Little town of Bethlehem Silent Night Ave Maria Away in the Manger O come, O come Immanuel Hark the Herald Angels Sing O come all ye faithful God rest ye merry gentlemen It came upon a midnight clear Joy to the World We three kings As the deer panteth for the water Our God is an awsome God Shout to the Lord Well I shall stop there so that other may also add theirs.

My Hope is in the Lord; My Faith Has Found a Resting Place; The Solid Rock; I love the old Fanny Crosby Hymns A very moving hymn to meditate on before communion is "O Sacred Head Now Wounded" Another moving slower hymn is "Breathe on Me, Breath of God" I Too can go on & on- I can recommend two Hymn books : Great Hymns of the Faith & The Majesty Hymn Book

i dun know the title of my fave hymn but it goes something like this - "i give to you my heart. i give to you my will. i give to you my mind. and i am yours to fill. and what i give please take. and what you take please break. and what you break please use. use it for your glory. use it for your glory. use it for your glory alone." hopefully, someone can give me the title of this one :-)

There is a good one that I haven't seen on any list above called He Lives. I always liked that one very much. I think one of my all time favorites is I'll Fly Away.

I don't know all of the ones you mentioned, but the ones I do are great hymns! I like "My Jesus, I Love Thee", "Fairest Lord Jesus", "O Worship The King", "Joyful, Joyful, We Adore Thee", "Praise To The Lord, The Almighty", "All Creatures of Our God and King", "On Christ the Solid Rock I Stand". I didn't realize it at first, but I guess my list could go on and on too!
