Hymn singing has always been important in Christian worship. From the time of the unaccompanied singing on the Mount of Olives after the Last Supper to the modern day 'worship bands', people have expressed their love of God in song.
The hymns of Frances Ridley Havergal have been part of this long and loved tradition. It is possible to re dedicate our lives with her 'Take my life and let it be', to march triumphantly with 'Who is on the Lord's side?', or to rest in God's peace with 'Like a river glorious'.
