My Favorite Hymns

One of my favorite things about going to church is singing hymns. I love hymns so much. I love singing them, I love listening to them, I love playing them. 

The other day, Miguel asked me what my favorite hymn in the hymnal was, and I didn’t even try to answer. How could I possibly pick just one? Here’s my list of favorite hymns. I took the 2006 Lutheran Service Book and flipped through each hymn to pick these. Yes, it’s long. It could have been longer.
