I think I’ve said many times that I could never pick a favorite hymn. I’ve said that my favorite hymn changes weekly, depending on the time of year and what hymns I happened to be singing at the time.
Recently I started making a list of those I would consider my favorites. I thought I would try to cap it at 100. But recently I thought that during this calendar year I would attempt to narrow my favorites down to 52. I’ll choose a hymn each week and share a few thoughts about that hymn. I’ll try to stay within the seasons of the church year, but I can’t guarantee that’s going to balance right (For example, there are so many good Advent and Christmas hymns for such short seasons.)
