(A VISION FOR CHRISTIAN SONG, by Ken Bible; p.13)
The hymns that God’s children love to sing are those that speak their faith with warmth and
vitality, in a way that resonates with personal experience.
Hymns are a feast for the body, mind, and spirit. Enjoy them completely! Don’t just listen to
hymns. Sing them! The most life-changing songs are not the ones we hear but the ones we
sing. As Paul urged the young church in Colosse, “Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly as
you teach and admonish one another with all wisdom, and as you sing psalms, hymns and
spiritual songs with gratitude in your hearts to God” (Colossians 3:16, NIV).
