What is my favorite hymn and why?

That’s a tough question — there are so many hymns that I love. They provide strength, courage, comfort, and an outlet for joy.

Two of my most favorite hymns are Blest Be the Tie that Binds and Will Your Anchor Hold. Some time ago a tragedy befell my family. Our Christian brethren rallied around us, helping us get through. The song Blest Be the Tie that Binds captured the essence of the love that was out poured to us and our feelings toward them.

The second song has been such an encouragement to me to stand strong and firm when temped to sin or when tempted to remain silent when I find my brethren engaging in sin. It reminds me that Christ’s strength passes to me and that I can be a pillar of truth and a beacon of light in this world, even if storms are raging all around.
