Glorious Hymns of Praise

Glorious Hymns of Praise 640x361Perhaps, hymn writer Edith Margaret Clarkson said it best, "A hymn is an expression of worship—our glad and grateful acknowledgement of the 'worth-ship' of Almighty God, our confession of our own creatureliness before our Creator, our bowing before His transcendence. Hymns are a celebration of who and what God is and of what He has done—songs of praise, thanksgiving, and joy in God."
