Very nice and uplifting. Thanks!

Hmmm... I was less enthusiastic about the subject matter; its a bit like an Obama supporter being forced to type in 'we love Sarah Palin' .... not that there's anything wrong with that, necessarily. (Although I suppose it depends what sense of the word love we are using)

Several folks said they felt misled by the title of my "Hum on Hymns" puzzle a couple weeks ago - so I figured I'd follow up with some real hymns

Actually I haven't been to church in ages, but the singing was always my favorite part! It's amazing how these things stay in your head from childhood!

Agreed. Hard for us heathens. That's okay though, don't have to like every subject!

I grew up singing hymns in church and at school through much of my life, and I have to say only one of these was at all familiar (and that one was very familiar). I had to resort to Googling, and that only helped so much, since one of them was given differently from every version I saw online. Of course, making a typo on the first one I did didn't help much. But these came from a very different hymnal from any I grew up using!

Yep, one I knew as one of the first hymns children learn; the other four were mysteries.

I enjoyed it! But i wasn't really familiar with 3 of mine, and I'm a church pianist. But there are so many hymns out there, I'm not at all surprised - there are only so many moments of a church service each week that can be dedicated to singing. We tend to settle on a handful of our favorites.

I've missed a lot of WPs lately, but I enjoyed this one very much, Suzer. You don't necessarily have to be religious to enjoy hymns. They all have beautiful music. Thanks for an interesting, change-of-pace WP, Suzer.

I didn't know any of them but I just play for the points anyway. Sometimes I get lucky with puzzles and get them with a few moves, but there are too many experts who can keep me in my place (moves wise).

There was only one I didn't know Suzer - nice job

I didn't get any hymns about snake handling or the fiery tongues of perdition's kiss....must've all been from an Episcopalian hymnal or something!

Speaking of which, Rev, can any of you name the religious Christmas Carol that talks about snakes?
