Thirty Great Hymns of Faith

Hymns

A 34-session devotional journey through thirty of the greatest hymns of the Christian faith.

Thirty classics, with the earliest hymn dating back to 750 A.D. and the latest from 1923. From Martin Luther to Isaac Watts, from John Newton to Charles Wesley, I certainly hope this 34-session blog journey through these Great Hymns of Faith will bless you as much as I have been blessed preparing them. Enjoy!
