Learning Hymns

“Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly in all wisdom,
teaching and admonishing one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs,
singing with grace in your hearts to the Lord.”
Colossians 3:16

Every Tuesday is Grandma Day. The four grandchildren that live close-by will come to spend the day with me. That’s the day their mother, Christa, gets her groceries and runs errands.

One year I decided that on Grandma Day we would learn a new hymn for each month Every week I’d sing the chosen song again and again to the little ones. They listened as I sung it over and over or they would hear me in the background while they played. Before I expected it, I’d hear them singing some of the words along with me. By the end of the month they often sang the song word for word.

Each month I would send the title of the chosen hymn to Rachel in Virginia. Since her girls, Sierra and Aleya, were too far away to come for Grandma Day, Rachel taught them the song. When Rachel’s family came to visit, all the grandchildren knew the same hymns. It was a joy to hear them singing songs like “Marvelous Grace” and “In the Rifted Rock I’m Resting.”

Just a few days ago, I listened and smiled as I heard two-year-old Alyssa burst out singing, “false and full of sin I am.” Even though right now she does not really understand what she is singing, I thought, in years to come she will be blessed by having this song in her heart. Oh how I love knowing these little ones are getting into their hearts the deep truths these hymns offer.

Prayer: I thank You for ministering to the writers of the hymns we sing today. They’ve so touched my heart through the years and I ask that my grandchildren would receive the messages of these songs deep in their souls as well. Amen.

It’s really not that hard to teach a hymn to your children or grandchildren. Choose the song and begin singing it over and over again for one whole day.

Additional Ponderings:

If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW
