More Hymns

So, I got this email today. It's from Shadow Mountain Records. They announced that they're working on a hymn-based project, and asked me to take a survey (basically where they asked me to pick my ten favorite hymns). It's kinda fun to do surveys, and I like to help out when I can. I also really love a lot of the hymns.

Unfortunately, the one question I wanted to answer, they left off the survey. That's the one where they ask if I really think we need another recording of hymns. The one where they ask how they could do this one in such a way that it sounds different from EVERY OTHER hymn project currently on their shelves.

But anyway, if you want to take the survey, too, you can.

Or, we can all join in, here at Mo' Boy. What are your favorite hymns?

Here are a few of mine:

  • How Firm a Foundation - This is one of the few that can actually bring me to tears.
  • Sweet Hour of Prayer - I used to sing this one to my kids as a lullaby
  • If You Could Hie to Kolob - deep doctrine, way cool harmonies!

What about you?

  1. Hi Mark
    I stumbled across your blog on LDS BLOGS. I thought you mighe be interested in a site my wife and I just built called, which uses simple, explanatory videos to explain the Mormon faith. Feel free to feature any of these videos on your blog, or just share them with non-member friends. We're hoping these videos will be missionary tools to help members share their beliefs. Anyway, sorry to spam your comments section. I couldn't find any contact information for you on your blog.

  2. Hey Mark! Long time, no talk. How Firm a Foundation is a great one, but nothing gets me through the housework (or through an especially cold, scary night camping by myself 20+ years ago) like Put Your Shoulder To the Wheel. Not exactly made for meditative reflection, but I think it's a song that shows that our gospel is one of getting up off your hind end and getting stuff done!
