Do you have a favorite hymn? Do you have a favorite season of songs? What do you think are the congregation’s favorite hymns? Come to worship on Sunday, June 9th and make your voice heard, share your opinion, and let’s find out together what the favorite hymns are at SPLC!
During worship that Sunday we will have a ‘live bracket’ and vote as a community on our favorite hymns! But…this will not be easy! Pastor Joe has selected 64 seasonal and non-seasonal hymns, seeded them according to his own opinion (disagreements on seeding can be sent to the Selection Committee’s email address!), and pitted them against each other in four regions: “Advent/Christmas Region”, “Epiphany/Lent Region”, “Holy Week/Easter Region”, and the “Pentecost Region”. Each region has 8 matchups between 16 hymns. We will vote live on each matchup and the hymn with the most votes will advance to the next round. This process will repeat through the rounds of 32, Sweet Sixteen, Elite Eight, Final Four, and Championship until a reigning hymn of SPLC is crowned!
So, brush up on these 64 hymns and have your opinions ready! See you on June 9th.
Silent Night, Holy Night
Hark the Glad Sound!
Soon and Very Soon
Just a Closer Walk with Thee
O Come, O Come Emmanuel
Let Us Break Bread Together
It Came Upon a Midnight Clear
Hark! The Herald Angels Sing
Joy to the World!
O Jesus I Have Promised
Lord Whose Love in Humble Service
Joyful, Joyful We Adore Thee
Angels We Have Heard on High
Away in a Manger
O Come, All Ye Faithful
Rock of Ages, Cleft for Me
Beautiful Savior
Praise to the Lord, the Almighty
Great is Thy Faithfulness
My Faith Looks Up to Thee
Be Thou My Vision
As With Gladness Men of Old
Beneath the Cross of Jesus
O Morning Star, How Fair and Bright
A Mighty Fortress is Our God
O Lord, Throughout These 40 Days
Day by Day
What Feast of Love
This is My Father’s World
Alas! And Did my Savior Bleed
On Eagles’ Wings
In the Cross of Christ I Glory
I Love to Tell the Story
I Know that My Redeemer Lives
Now All the Vault of Heaven Resounds
This Little Light of Mine
My Hope is Built on Nothing Less
Baptized and Set Free
Children of the Heavenly Father
O Sacred head, Now Wounded
Were You There?
Borning Cry
Ah, Holy Jesus
Alleluia! Sing to Jesus
Go to Dark Gethsemane
Praise and Thanksgiving
Jesus Christ is Risen Today
A Hymn of Glory Let Us Sing
Amazing Grace, How Sweet the Sound
Jesus Loves Me!
Come, Join the Dance of Trinity
God of Tempest, God of Whirlwind
What Wondrous Love is This
Will You Come and Follow Me
What a Friend We Have in Jesus
Holy, Holy, Holy, Lord God Almighty
Here I Am, Lord
Precious Lord, Take My Hand
Go, My Children, with My Blessing
Morning Has Broken
Come, Thou Font of Every Blessing
My Life Flows on in Endless Song
How Great Thou Art
Love Divine, All Loves Excelling
