Popular Hymns of Worship

One of the major ways Christians have let the Word of God dwell in us richly throughout history has been through singing hymns in church gatherings. Hymns are beloved because they share the richness of the gospel and the beauty of Jesus Christ in an attractive and memorable way.

Hymns have the habit of ministering to our hearts, giving us hope and faith. They teach us theology, help us minister to each other, unite us with Christians from the past centuries, and take our eyes off ourselves and put them on Jesus.

Here are the titles of some of the most popular Christian hymns. The list includes some classic hymns and some modern/contemporary church hymns.
