Partnering to Remember | Hymns

This year, as a follow up to the Partnering to Remember initiative to memorize the book of Philippians which we just concluded, the gathered communities of Redemption Hill Church will be spending the next seven months devoted to learning the great hymns of our faith in our Sunday morning gathering. Singing and meditating on proven hymns is just one more way we can obey the Bible’s command to “let the word of Christ dwell in you richly, teaching and admonishing one another in all wisdom, singing psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, with thankfulness in your hearts to God” (Colossians 3:16).

We want to commit these hymns to memory because we want to benefit not only from the songs written in our lifetime, but also from hymns that have served the people of God for generations, and that will still be around long after we’re gone. They are time-tested and true. They speak to every circumstance of life, and point us to the wisdom, love, and power of our gracious God, and Savior Jesus Christ. Each month, we will highlight a different hymn in our Sunday gathering, and to help us in the process of memorization, we’ll be singing the hymn for that particular month on each Sunday. On the last Sunday of the month, we will sing the hymn without any lyrics.

This month’s featured hymn will be Rock of Ages. Be on the lookout next week for a free mp3 of the hymn recorded by our own Redemption Hill musicians, as well as some historical information on the hymn and its author.
