All time greatest ever Hymns

Vicar’s Reflection: 26th October 2014, OS 30

 

When Moses died he was revered as the greatest leader and prophet Israel had ever had and the greatest example of being close to God and a true servant of God anyone had ever and would ever witness. He was at the top of the ‘All-time Greatest Ever’ list! Here is another all-time greatest ever list of hymns:

Amazing Grace by John Newton (1779)

Holy, Holy, Holy, by Reginald Heber (1861)

Be Thou My Vision attributed to Dallán Forgaill, (6th century A.D.)

Come Thou Fount of Every Blessing by Robert Robinson (1757)

A Mighty Fortress Is Our God by Martin Luther (c. 1528)

How Great Thou Art by Carl Gustav Boberg (1885)

How Firm a Foundation by R. Keene (1787)

Great Is Thy Faithfulness by Thomas Chisholm (1923)

In Christ Alone by Keith Getty and Stuart Townend (2001)

When I Survey the Wondrous Cross by Isaac Watts (1707)

It’s interesting to note that these best-loved hymns focus on the glory and grandeur of God. By directing our attention and worship to the amazing, holy and glorious God we serve in Christ, as we do in these hymns, our hearts and minds and lives can be transformed. The Gospel writers were careful to present Jesus as a greater prophet than Moses because although Moses set an example and pointed the way, Jesus said “I am the way!’ At 2pm today we will host the Cymanfa Ganu  Festival of Singing service led by the Geelong Welsh Ladies Choir. I am sure their singing will lift us closer to heaven.                                                             Alex Czerwonka
