Classic Hymns of Our Faith

We will be singing some of the classic hymns of our faith in the morning worship services in July and August. I have been collecting favorites from classes and individuals for several months, and we will feature as many of them as we can during the worship services. Do you have a favorite hymn? Let me know so that I can put them on my list.
