(A VISION FOR CHRISTIAN SONG, by Ken Bible; p.75)

emotionally affirm their confidence in God. They were thus able to face their trials with joy and

unshakable peace.

Their hymns also became a life-changing testimony to the unbelievers around them. Note that

musical style wasn’t what appealed to the listeners. The stories don’t even mention it. The

attraction was the joy and faith of the singers, not the songs themselves.

So don’t leave our hymns locked up at church. Don’t let our hymnals stay nailed to the pew. Up

until the last hundred years or so, hymnals were a personal item. The Bible and the hymnal

were the believer’s most treasured devotional possessions. Whether or not you use hymnals in

your church services, get your own hymnal and keep it with your Bible. That will be the first step

toward getting hymns into your heart and into your daily life where they can do the most good.
