Tonight in church we sang “Holy, Holy, Holy.” That’s a song we sing a lot at our house, and all three of my children were singing it (well, Laurel was just making noise, but the other two were actually singing the words).
It was convicting to notice the energy they sang when they actually knew the song, convicting because I realize how inconsistent I am in teaching them hymns. So this week and next I’m going to work on a hymn.
I’m sometimes surprised (and a little disappointed) to see so little interest and understanding of spiritual things, yet they both sing when they know the song. Maybe I can use music deliberately, not just to teach them good songs, but to actually lay a foundation for understanding salvation. So, here’s my question. If you were going to make a hymn “Romans Road,” what five (or thereabouts) songs would you teach? I promise not to complain about difficult vocabulary if you contribute. 😀
