What's your favourite hymn?

When asked this question my mind often goes blank because I have a range of hymns that I like to sing on different occasions but if I had to chose one, it would be George Herbert's; 'Let all the world in every corner sing'. I love this hymn because it stirs my soul and helps me to focus my thoughts and prayers on God and to give thanks for everything I have and every blessing I receive. It also has the great ability to cheer me up when I feel down because of its joyful proclamation that the church must shout its psalms with joy. I don't think we shout with joy enough in the church or in life either. This hymn is a good reminder to be joyful in worship and thanksgiving.


       Let all the world in every corner sing,

6 My God and King!

The heavens are not too high,

His praise may thither fly;

The earth is not too low,

His praises there may grow.

Let all the world in every corner sing,

My God and King!


Let all the world in every corner sing,

My God and King!

   The church with psalms must shout,

No door can keep them out;

But above all, the heart

Must bear the longest part.

Let all the world in every corner sing,

My God and King!


Yesterday and next Sunday we are enjoying the favourite hymns of the choir and what a rousing selection they are proving to be. Why not pop along next week to the Good Shepherd, Murrayfield and discover what hymns we will be singing.
