Thread Name: What makes a good hymn?
Subject: RE: What makes a good hymn?
Cwm Rhondda is a great tune, whether you sing "Guide me, O thou great Jehovah" (or some modernization thereof) or "God of grace, and God of glory" (the text I learnt it to). Ville du Havre is another fine tune ("It is well with my soul"). And Lobe den Herren ("Praise to the Lord, the Almighty, the King of creation"). I was just recommending "Chorus of fire" this morning on Baptistlife.com.
