Classic Hymns

I like good Praise and Worship music. Not the kind where we sing to ourselves, putting ourselves in the place of God talking to His people. Not the kind of sappy feel-good music. But, that which truly puts our Lord in proper perspective and gives him what He is due. Here are a few of my favorites:

-How Great Thou Art
-Amazing Grace
-Love Divine, All Loves Excelling
-Holy, Holy, Holy,

I also like modern Praise and Worship, when done well.

I want someone to sing this at my funeral. Beautiful. I would want it without the steel guitar. I am no fan of Carrie Underwood, but she doesn't get carried away in singing this song. Some try to do too much with it. This is controlled and lovely.

You would like Elvis, if you like country try Alabama. Elvis' version still gives me chills.

Ditto, Marcel. Ditto.

Ok. I'll try to get Carrie Underwood to your funeral. DOn't like my chances but I'll try.

Marcel said...

Matthew - not what I was asking and would rather that not happen. :-)

This is very nice...and I totally agree, the song is at its best the more low-key the presentation is. Let the words speak for themselves.
