What we're singing

We sing quite a few hymns in our house. We don't keep up with popular music, even popular ccm, so the hymns are what we prefer.

The same faith, expressed in the same songs, has been passed down intact.

We have a hymnal that my husband gave me for a gift years ago which we flip through when we don't know what song to sing, but usually, we search CyberHymnal.org to find lyrics -- especially when we know the title or beginning of a hymn but not all of its words. I've never thought up a song that I couldn't find there.

Cyber Hymnal (also called net hymnal) is a simple site which has been around for 20 years; I recall using it myself at least 10 years ago. If you haven't checked it out, you should. There is something beautiful and precious about historic hymns. They are, at the least, a reminder of generations of believers and that our faith didn't start with us, or even our own generation. The same faith, expressed in the same songs, has been passed down intact.

Clicking through the site can be cumbersome at times. The links aren't always right; sometimes the music doesn't play -- and other such minor things. Often I will leave an unfamiliar site for these type of errors, but you don't need to skip this one.
