Thread Name: What makes a good hymn?
Subject: RE: What makes a good hymn?
Some of the best hymns appear to involve lots of grovelling, eg. "How Great Thou Art", " Almighty , Ineffable", etc

The tunes are lilting and beautifully melodious

The sentiments; gushing and fearful of the great wok of fire for all non believers ( the punishment does seem a little harsh for not believing or for even admitting that you do not know ). Some God .

Anyway, well done Jenny for this site at Mudcat. All good stuff.
