Have we not all delighted in the study of the stories behind the great hymns of our faith?  Of the thousands of lines that a writer may pen, only a handful rise to be found in the vast majority of sacred hymnals - having proven their value through time, trial and temptation.  We have compiled stories of these great hymns from various sources.  Some of them are reproduced below just as they appeared in our weekly church bulletin.  We trust you will enjoy and receive a blessing from not just the song, but the story behind the song, as it ministers to you through the life, circumstances and testings of its author.

Our primary sources include (but are not limited to): "Amazing Grace" (366 Inspiring Hymn Stories for Daily Devotions); "101 Hymn Stories;" "101 More Hymn Stories" all three by Kenneth W. Osbeck; and "Famous Stories of Inspiring Hymns" by Earnest K. Emurain.
