This is a hard one
Number one hymn is easy....
Trust and Obey
When we walk with the Lord in the light of His word
What a glory He sheds on our way
When we do His good will
He abides with us still
And with all who will trust and obey
Trust and obey, for there's no other way
to be happy in Jesus, than to trust and obey.
I sort of categorize -- the rest of my favorites.
A Mighty Fortress
I am very much moved and challenged by the line "Let goods and kindred go, this mortal life also"
Here I am Lord
Which has the beautiful refrain:
Here I am Lord, is it I Lord?
I have heard you calling in the night.
i will go Lord, if you lead me.
I will hold your people in my heart.
Come, Ye Thankful People Come
My favorite verse is number 4 -- still
I always wonder if people singing that hymn realize they are asking God to bring about the Second Coming (I think most are thinking about Thanksgiving turkey )
Even so Lord, quickly come
To Thy final harvest home;
Gather Thou Thy people in,
Free from sorrow, free from sin;
There forever purified,
In Thy presence to abide;
Come, with all Thine angels, come,
Raise the glorious harvest home.
I better stop now ---
