How Great Thou Art, Great is Thy Faithfulness, To God be the Glory, Because He lives, Amazing Grace are just a few of my favourite hymns.
As a little girl my Mother always had hymns playing in the background, and it wasn't until I began walking with the Lord at the age of 16 that all the words from those hymns came flooding back into my mind and spirit and had a very real meaning to me.
I love and have an appreciation for all sorts of music, R&B, soul, classical, country, jazz, and soft rock, but there is just something extra special about those hymns that make my soul soar.
Hymns are special to me and that is why I am teaching my children. We will sing them, listen to them and play them on our instruments and even if my children do not appreciate them now I believe there will be a time when they do.
Right now we are learning the beautiful hymn 'To God be the Glory' written by Fanny Crosby.
While browsing You Tube I found this upbeat version for kids and I dig it. It may not be everybodys cup of tea but my children sure love it.
Like I said earlier I love all sorts of music and in this day and age there are so many versions of this song and we listen to the original as well as fun ones like these.
Also I am choreographing some simple moves to this song for our end of year concert.
Pretty cool huh!
