Old Hymns, New Voices

What makes a song timeless isn’t that its appeal doesn’t change with time; but that over time it changes with the appeal. A classic song, book, or artwork ‘has never finished saying what it has to say’ (Italo Calvino) - and with Hymns, this is doubly true. Hymns are sung and re-sung by each subsequent generation because the words contained therein still speak to Christians today.

As testament, here are ten Hymns that are sung by new voices; men and women who see the value that hymnal music still holds to this day.

1. You Are My Vision - Rend Collective


2. Nothing But the Blood - Casting Crowns


3. O, For a Thousand Tongues to Sing  - David Crowder Band


4. Come Thou Font - Kings Kaleidoscope


5. Blessed Assurance  - Elevation Worship 


6. Amazing Grace (I WIll Trust) - Nathan Jess 


7. Doxology - Kristene Dimarco 


8. We Believe (Apostles Creed) - Hillsong Worship


9. And Can It Be - PHATFISH and Lou Fellingham


10. What a Friend We Have in Jesus - Newsboys


Like the most precious of jewels, there is something lasting in these hymns. Time hasn't dulled them, and their heart remains throughout the musical and aesthetic changes that newer generations see in them.

In 'O, For a Thousand Tongues to Sing' David Crowder repeats that ‘There are so few words that never grow old’, which what defines them.

Hymns don’t grow old, but they do grow.
