Aside from God’s Holy and Inspired Word, some of the most profound and theologically deep writings are found in hymns. Through the ages, hymns have been a way to pour out our worship to God. Some hymns are sung directly to God: “Joyful, joyful, we adore Thee, God of glory, Lord of love…”
Others are sung about God: “Praise to the Lord, the Almighty, the King of creation. Oh, my soul, praise Him, for He is thy health and salvation.”
Still others are sung to encourage others in their walk with God: “Come, we that love the Lord and let our joys be known….we’re marching to Zion…”
There are so many hymns that express our thoughts and feelings about God. Some quote scripture. Others have scriptural references. Still others express our heartfelt love.
Add the deep theology and profound thoughts to a musical melody and somehow God is able to bury them in the bedrock of our souls and spirits. Often, in times of grief and distress, or in times of great joy, hymns will come to mind expressing our love for…and need for…our amazing God.
This Sunday, September 16, 6:00pm, we will join together to worship through some of these great and beloved hymns. Led by our Sanctuary Choir and Orchestra, hymns will resound through voices and instruments. Choir, orchestra, solos, trio, quartet, congregation…all worshiping through well-loved and timeless hymns.
Join us for this amazing time of worship…and bring someone who loves hymns! It will be a night to remember…a Night of Hymns!
Johns Creek Baptist Church
You should google Charles Pettee and/or Folkpsalm. He has set several Psalms to traditional folk music. Part of his group performed a couple of these at a church here in Brevard.
