Throughout history, two books have accompanied the advancement of Christianity: the Bible and the Hymnal. We may easily forget words that we read, or even memorize, but the melodies that we hear and sing remain in our thoughts, our minds, and our hearts forever. When Biblical truths are stated in a musical form we enjoy, the result is a penetration into our lives that has lasting spiritual benefits. These enduring songs convey a message that never grows old! So sing the hymns. Sing them over and over again. Seek out some of the great traditional songs that are rarely heard today. Purposefully learn hymns you do not know -- you will discover some gems. Whatever your musical tastes, discover anew the joy of singing the hymns! Pass this great tradition on to your children, and to the generations to follow.
