Thread Name: What makes a good hymn?
Subject: RE: What makes a good hymn?
What makes a good hymn? I think it's all in how it's presented. I've heard the same hymn presented different ways and sometimes I want to jump right in and sing my heart out while other times I can't wait for the song to end. For me, a good hymn (other than the presentation) is either upbeat or has very sweet, touching lyrics. The overbearing organ music is not my idea of great church music...overbearing anything (voice or instrument)really isn't my idea of good music of any kind! :) In my opinion, a hymn should please the ears and the mind.
