I have several favorites that I enjoy singing on any particular day. This Christmas season I have locked into one called, "Mary did you know." I don't even know if that is the title but I love the song.
"Mary did you know that your little boy would someday walk on water."
Our church just did an original play written by a member where Mary and Joseph were in the barn and she was in labor and they were discussing the baby that was to be born. It was just beautiful with scenes going on another part of the stage of what his life would be.

Not a hymm per se, but a song that I like that deals with the divine...the divine is within us all, so who am I to say a goth singer can't write a divinely inspired song?
Do not injustice to another
Defend the weak and innocent
Let truth and honor always guide you
Let courage find the light within
Stand up when no one else is willing
Act not in hatred or in spite
Be to this world as a perfect knight
Even if it means your life
Here I am
Alive among the injured and the dead
Here I am
Thy will be done
Santa Sophia (Here I am)
Peace is born to your victory
Athena Sophia (Here I am)
Thy will be done (How can I be)
What's inside of me?
NOTE TO ADMINISTRATION: I am not posting the whole song, just the chorus, so I am not infringing on any copyright.
"It is well in my soul" (This song helped me through my father's death)
On November 2nd 1873, the 'Ville de Havre' had collided with 'The Lochearn', an English vessel. It sank in only 12 minutes, claiming the lives of 226 people. Anna Spafford had stood bravely on the deck, with her daughters Annie, Maggie, Bessie and Tanetta clinging desperately to her. Her last memory had been of her baby being torn violently from her arms by the force of the waters......
Upon hearing the terrible news, Horatio Spafford boarded the next ship out of New York to join his bereaved wife. Bertha Spafford (the fifth daughter of Horatio and Anna born later) explained that during her father's voyage, the captain of the ship had called him to the bridge. "A careful reckoning has been made", he said, "and I believe we are now passing the place where the de Havre was wrecked. The water is three miles deep." Horatio then returned to his cabin and penned the lyrics of his great hymn......
The words which Spafford wrote that day come from 2 Kings 4:26......

I love all the old standards..One is "In the Garden".. My favorite lines are the chorus
~~and He walks with me and He talks with me,
and He tells me, I am His own..And the joy we share,
as we tarry there , none other has ever known~~
1) Be Thou My Vision: it has gotten me through many dark times.
2) It is Well: really speaks to me when I need to be reminded of what is important
3) A Mighty Fortress: helps me to remember my place in creation and that God protects me
4) Battle Hymn of the Republic: esp. verse 4
5) I'll Fly Away: what a great song! So uplifting
6) O Sacred Head Now Wounded
7) Turn Your Eyes Upon Jesus
8) The Old Rugged Cross
9) In the Garden
10) O For a Thousand Tongues to Sing
11) What a Friend We Have in Jesus
12) St. Patrick's Breastplate
13) There is a Redeemer
ok, I'll stop there! I love hymns, I use them all the time to focus on God and to express what I'm feeling, when I can't come up with something original.
