(A VISION FOR CHRISTIAN SONG, by Ken Bible; p.77)

Hymns draw us to Jesus Christ. Hymns encourage us to trust God and approach Him with a

sincere heart in full assurance of faith (Hebrews 10:22). Hymns strengthen us to stand firm in all

the will of God, mature and fully assured (Colossians 4:12). Hymns help us comprehend, with all

the saints, what is the breadth and length and height and depth, and to know the love of Christ

that surpasses knowledge, so that we may be filled with all the fullness of God (Ephesians 3:18-

19, NRSV, adapted).

That is the power and potential of hymn singing. Don’t get sidetracked! Singing is not about

enjoying a pleasing sound or emotional stimulation. Hymns are not fantasy music. Hymns are

reality music. They nurture our relationship with the Living Christ. They turn our attention to His

constant presence and interaction in absolutely every aspect of daily life. Hymns help form

Jesus Christ within us.
