The Old is New – Hymns Remade

I have discovered a deep appreciation for hymns. Growing up in more of a contemporary environment, hymns help me connect to the past. Amazing Grace gets me every time. Every time I sing that song I feel the heavy presence of Jesus and his beautiful grace over my life.

In worship services, I believe there’s a fine balance between the old and the new. It’s important to keep these hymns close to our heart, but it’s also important to sing a new song to the Lord (Psalm 96:1).

Through the process of selecting worship songs for Sundays, I have come across many wonderful remakes of timeless hymns. Here’s a few I’d love to share with you.
