Memorizing the Hymns

21 12 2008

covenlifehymnsCovenant Life Church, where Josh Harris pastors, has devoted itself to spend the next 10 months memorizing some of the great hymns of the faith.  Each month, as a church, they will be memorizing a hymn in order to be obedient to Colossians 3:16 and also to make sure they don’t lose connection with the great songs of God’s people from generations past.

Here is the list of hymns they’ll be (and have been) memorizing:

NOVEMBER – Amazing Grace
DECEMBER – Before the Throne
JANUARY – Praise to the Lord, the Almighty
FEBRUARY – Be Thou My Vision
MARCH – And Can It Be
APRIL – Crown Him with Many Crowns
MAY – A Mighty Fortress
JUNE – Be Still My Soul
JULY – How Firm a Foundation
AUGUST – Great is Thy Faithfulness

They’ve also used their great musical resources to put together an album of these hymns.  You can listen to samples and purchase the music here.

What a wonderful idea.

Let’s do it! The only one I don’t already have memorized is Before the Throne. I think that’s a great idea!
