A Song in My Heart” celebrates a key component of Christian worship since the earliest days of the church—the singing of hymns. In later centuries, most major revivals and national spiritual movements and awakenings have been accompanied by sacred songs. In churches where people were mostly illiterate, the singing of hymns was a teaching tool for Christian truths. But it is also true that the singing of hymns has united the mighty and the humble in expressing praise to their God and Savior.
Meet the eccentric Mr. Hymnody as he relates the stories of seemingly ordinary people who penned extraordinary hymns. And feel free to sing along with our chorus.
As Isaac Watts observed, “The singing of God’s praise is the part of worship most closely related to heaven.”
“God sent his singers upon the earth
With songs of sadness and of mirth
That they might touch the hearts of men,
And bring them back to heaven again”
--Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
