Do you know my Jesus? These writers did, I am sure of it. Do you know them and the hymns they wrote?
Let’s venture a little test: connect the names with their hymn title and perhaps hum a little hymn!
1. Folliott S. Pierpoint
2. Martin Rinhart
3. Edmund H. Sears
4. Henry van Dyke
5. Sabina Baring-Gould
6. Henry F. Lyte
7. Jeremiah E. Rankin
8. Maltbie D. Babcock
9. Joseph Mohr
A. Silent Night
B. This is my Father’s World
C. For the Beauty of the Earth
D. Now Thank We All Our God
E. It Came Upon the Midnight Clear
F. Now the Day is Over
G. Abide with Me: Fast Falls the Eventide
H. God Be With You Till We Meet Again
J. Joyful, Joyful—We Adore Thee
This exercise is presented in order to perhaps reintroduce you to the beauty and truth contained in the hymns of old. Enjoy!
