    It’s been mentioned before, but my favorite hymn today is “How Great Thou Art”, because God is exceedingly great!

    The hymn was originally written in Swedish, translated into German, then into Russian, then into English, with some verses removed and others added. Carl Boberg wrote the original, and Stuart Wesley Keene Hine is responsible for the most popular English version. My favorite verse is one written by Hine, followed by the chorus:

    And when I think that God, His Son not sparing,
    Sent Him to die, I scarce can take it in;
    That on the cross, my burden gladly bearing,
    He bled and died to take away my sin.

    Then sings my soul, my Savior God, to Thee,
    “How great Thou art! How great Thou art!”
    Then sings my soul, my Savior God, to Thee,
    “How great Thou art! How great Thou art!”

    My favorite hymn of today is Isaac Watt’s classic “When I Survey the Wondrous Cross”. It’s a beautiful hymn about being in awe at Jesus’s sacrifice and responding with worship, quoting Galatians 6:14 in one of the verses.

    Happy Resurrection Day! My favorite hymn of today is a classic one that was previously mentioned: “Christ Arose”, also known as “Low In The Grave He Lay”. It’s an excellent hymn about the Resurrection of Jesus from the dead, managing to capture the triumph of the occasion in both its lyrics and its melody (Robert Lowry composed both in 1874).
