What’s Your Favorite Hymn?

We have always wanted to record a project containing the great songs of the church.  This week we will be choosing songs for a new Hymns project and would love to get your opinion.  It’s going to be difficult to narrow it down to just 10 songs… so let’s hear from you!  What is your favorite Hymn?


    1. “It is well with my soul” & “Have a little talk with Jesus” How could it NOT be well with our souls if we continue to talk with Jesus?!

  1. “In The Garden” ya know the one:

    I come to the garden alone
    While the dew is still on the roses
    And the voice I hear falling on my ear
    The Son of God discloses.

    And He walks with me, and He talks with me,
    And He tells me I am His own;
    And the joy we share as we tarry there,
    None other has ever known.

  2. My favorite hymn is ” Because he lives. I had a liver transplant 11 years ago (1998) and from the time I was in intensive care, it was on my mind all the time, even some of the nurses in the intensive care sang it with me.
    It will always be my favorite song.
    I would love for you to inculde it in your songs.
    Thank you

  3. There are so many great, poetic, meaningful, worshipful hymns. I would say the first one that comes to mind is “When I Survey The Wondrous Cross”.

  4. My Favorite Hymns Are: 1. How Great Thou Art.
    2. There’s within my Heart a Melody: The Man was preaching a revival and lost his home in a fire. something like that luther Bridges.
    3.Amazing Grace. 4. It is Well with my Soul.
    5.In the Garden. 6.Sweet Holy Spirit
    7. Precious Memories, 8. Just As I Am
    9. What A friend We Have in Jesus.
    10. Sweet Hour of Prayer.

  5. When my dad died by suicide because of somethings in his younger life as a child at home they sang Rock of Ages and I cannot listen to it without crying. He was my buddy, best friend, my daddy even though I was 29 years old at the time. He was saved by the grace of God 2 years earlier and noone can tell me that he was not saved. That is the only thing that helps me when I think of losing him. I know that I will see him some day. I would love for Rock of Ages to be on there in memory of my daddy that never got to see the grandson that I was carrying at the time.

  6. My favorite hymn is He Touched Me. I had an experience at the alter after a crusade meeting where I actually felt the touch of God’s hand on my shoulder. I will never forget that night 111

  7. Without a doubt: “It is Well With My Soul” and “Precious Lord”. I want these played at my (I hope not very soon) funeral. Thanks for asking.

  8. This is a hard thing to decide upon. I believe ya when ya say that it will be hard to narrow it down to just 10 songs. May I suggest though, that ya’ll put more on the next project instead of just 10? Mabey something around 12-15 songs ought to do it.

    But as for some of my favorite hymns(i’ll name 10)….
    It Is Well With My Soul, In The Garden,
    I’m Free(by Bill Gaither),Standing On The Solid Rock, The Old Rugged Cross, He Touched Me, The Lighthouse, I Rest My Case At The Cross, I Know A Man Who Can, and
    Who Am I(by Rusty Goodman)

  9. Some of the best Hymms ever written are listed above but no project would be complete without
    “There’s Is Something About That Name” (Jesus,Jesus)
    May God Bless You

  10. Looks like you just need to check out an old George Beverly Shea album and get a list. Most of what has been posted would be found there. I love his songs. One not mentioned so far is “It Took a Miracle.”

  11. There are so many great old hymns; I understand how it is so hard to choose what you want to do! I love “How Great Thou Art”, but “It Is Well With My Soul” is very meaningful to me too. Also “Amazing Grace” because grace is so amazing – beyond comprehension. Blessing to you!

  12. Not necessarily my favorite, but The Dills would do a wonderful rendition of “Be Thou My Vision.” Right, it’s going to be hard to narrow down to 10 (or 11, or 12…).

  13. It is hard to choose two.Probably my favorites are “How Great Thou Art” and “Amazing Grace”.Having been to our church you know we still do hymns!

  14. I agree will several of the other suggestions. Howwever, I would love to hear “Just as I am” on the next project. That is the song that we were singing when I gave my heart to the Lord. Cann’t wait to get a copy of this project, I know it is going to be GREAT!!!!!Praying you each have a wonderful time with family during this season of Thanksgiving. I want to Thank you guys for all your dedication and serving the Lord.

  15. I have two favorites that stand out. “Sheltered In The Arms Of God” and ” Because He Lives”

  16. There are so many favorites of mine. But there are two I think sums it up for me: “Just As I AM” and “Victory In Jesus”

  17. My two most favorite hymns are “Amazing Grace” and “Jesus is the Sweetest Name I Know”
    Joann B.

  18. Two of my favorites that I have not seen mentioned here are:
    “Near to the Heart of God” & “Great is Thy Faithfullness”

  19. Hey, guys!
    I like to sing “How Great Thou Art”. Eric Lipford and I recorded a piece of music for me to perform with. It’s that hymn with a tag of Chris Tomlin’s song “How Great Is Our God”. It’s not an original idea, but it’s a good one!
    Also, “What A Day That Will Be” is one of my favorites.
    You put those two on there and you’ll make one of your fans happy, at least!
    God bless

  20. What A Day That Will Be and Sheltered In The Arms ………………. theses titles just says it all !!!

  21. One of my all time favorates has always been page 332 in the Baptist Hymnal. Free From The Kaw, O Happy Codition. Thank you for recording it!

  22. “When The Roll is Called Up Yonder” and “In the Sweet By and By” bring back memories of my Grandma Morgan and childhood days at Proctor City. Another couple I like…”I Want to Know More About My Lord” and “Learning to Lean on Jesus.” I also agree with “It Is Well with My Soul.”
    Surely you didn’t think we would have just one favorite!

  23. “Turn Your Eyes Upon Jesus” is my favorite song. The message and melody are heart taking.

  24. -There is Something About that Name
    -Just a Little Talk with Jesus
    -Just a Closer Walk with Thee

    p.s. keep the hair cut LOL! looked great

  26. Happy Thanksgiving to each of you and ALL your family members. We all have SOOO much to be grateful for. Praise God for his goodness!!
    A favorite hymn? That is a hard one. One of my favorite Christian artists is Keith Green. As you may know, Keith and two of his very young children, along with friends, died in a plane crash in the early 80’s. I love to hear him sing “Create In Me a Clean Heart”. After hearing you guys sing the “Our Father/The Lord’s Prayer”, I am convicted you can deliver any song with perfect harmony!

  27. One on my favorites is “When He was on the Cross, I was on His mind”. What a thought! Another is “When we all get to Heaven” Look forward to the CD. Every Blessing to you all.

  28. I cannot think of more of a praise than “How Great Thou Art and “The Old Rugged Cross”…I’d have a hard time putting one before the other.

    Thanks for singing Sunday night, that was a real treat! You are so special!

    God bless you, Lois

  29. My favorite hymn. Oh, gee, there are so many. How about In The Garden and When We All Get to Heaven.

  34. “O What A Savior” is just one of mine and I can just hear you guys in my head singing that song. It’s got a lot of places to crescendo & decrescendo and change tempo. But I haven’t seen it mentioned elsewhere so I guess it’s not as popular as many of the others. Whatever you do I know it will be great!

  35. My favorite hymn is When We All Get To Heaven with a close second being Victory in Jesus. Good luck and God Bless!

    What A Friend We Have In Jesus
    Jesus Loves Me
    How Beautiful Heaven Must Be
    The Unclouded Day
    Oh How He Loves Me and You
    He Loves Me
    O Happy Day
    Are You Washed in the Blood
    Just A Little Talk with Jesus

    Just to name a few of my favorites.
    Happy Thanksgiving!

  39. I like “Until Then” and “Oh, How I Love Jesus”. I love to just have the musicians stop and the congregation sing with us and it sounds so beautiful on Oh, how I love Jesus – just to hear people really pouring there hearts out to God and letting them know how much they love him is awesome!!!! I love all the old hymns and it’s hard to choose but these would be two of my favorites.

  40. It Is Well
    Saved, Saved
    What A Friend We Have in Jesus (to the tune of “the Rose”)
    Victory In Jesus
    Because He Lives

  41. Without a doubt my favorite hymn is “Amazing Grace”. “Until Then” would be a close 2nd. Happy Thanksgiving!

  42. my favorite is,” It Is Well With My Soul”,”Just A Closer Walk With Thee,” and That Long Black Train.

  43. How about “He is Here” or “He Knows My Name” or “Close to Thee” LOL Just a little stalker humor. Some of my all time favorites are “My Soul in Sad Exile” and “Great is Thy Faithfulness”. Good luck on choosing and I’ll be watching to see what you choose! Blessings, Ellery – Sand Spring Baptistst church Lawrenceburg KY.

  44. “What a Friend We Have in Jesus”
    “Sweet Hour of Prayer”
    These are 2 hymns that I love and cherish,
    for they are so real to me.

    God bless.

  45. My all time favorite is ‘VICTORY IN JESUS’ and I also like ‘SINCE JESUS CAME INTO MY HEART”! The list could go on, but I know that there is victory in Jesus and what a change in me Since Jesus came into my heart!!! Happy Thanksgiving to the Dills!!!

  46. A few hymns I love are Amazing Grace, How Great Thou Art, What A Day That Will Be, I’ll Rise Again, Learning to Lean, and When The Roll Is Called Up Yonder. Love you guys and thanks so much for serving the Lord!

  47. How about the song, Wonderful Love of Jesus.. Pus you might even want to try Showers of Blessings… Keep up the great work…

  48. Like everyone else, very difficult to name only one, so I’ve chosen three: Amazing Grace, It Is Well With My Soul, and
    When I Survey the Wondrous Cross. Looking forward to seeing you guys again!

  49. IF 10 songs are going to be difficult why not make it an 18 track album and charge a wee bit more.

    God bless
    Enjoyed you folks at Fraserburgh!!!!!

  50. Beulah Land and In The Garden are two of my favorites. Hope to see you again @ the Alexandria United Methodist Church again soon. God Bless
