Net Hymnal

The saddest disgrace in the modern American Church... well, besides all the rich, lukewarm, worldly believers taking up space... is the abandonment of the hymn.  Even small rural churches with mostly older populations have one or two frustrated performers up in front singing the modern stuff, oblivious to whether or not any one else is joining in.  They don't care... They have their microphone and the attention they crave.  The modern Christian music sounds more like the world's music... ... ...  What a treat for The Lord that we've found another way to be more like the world!

I hope that didn't sound harsh or unloving.

Anyway, I found a web site called Net Hymnal... And it electronically plays the hymn, lists the words, the composer's name, picture, and brief autobiography.  Love it!

So if you're tired of the pap every Sunday morning, go to Net Hymnal and remember the rich heritage that has inspired generations... Up until the modern church decided it knew better.

Thanks for your words about the ancients hymns, I had think I was the only one who appreciatte them! also in our churches in Mexico people is anxious to change these inspired hymns for new currents of songs they say for the glory of God, but sometimes they forgot to make mention of His Name! Thanks for NeyHymnal who shares with us all this information about our beloved music dedicated to our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ.
I found Nethymanl two years ago and since then has been of great blessing to me. Greetings from Monterrey, NL., México
