Encouraging Our Children with Great Hymns

ID-10087616There are days when I feel completely empty of words to build up and encourage both myself and others…including words to encourage my own grandchildren! Tragic events swirl around us, and it would be so easy to simply give in to despair. But then biblical truth comes crashing in to my mind and heart—in a good and powerful way. That Truth changes everything. Sometimes it is a particular memorized verse or series of verses that comes to mind. Hope arises and replaces despair! Give your children the great gift of memorizing Scripture! Another way we can help encourage our children is to teach them great hymns. I know there are many seemingly “kid-friendly” song options out there—songs that are fun, exciting, and simple, but these type of songs only take our children so far. Yes, there is a place for them. I am all for teaching children songs that contain simple words and tunes that convey great truths. But we also need to begin teaching our children for life 10, 20, or even 70 years down the road. Hereis a post from two years ago that came to mind today:

It is amazing to me how many times—especially in life’s most difficult situations—the words of great hymns come to mind to guide my thoughts and emotions.

…though the wrong seems oft so strong, God is the ruler yet…Jesus who died shall be satisfied, And earth and heaven be one. (This is My Father’s World)

…The prince of darkness grim, We tremble not for him—His rage we can endure, For lo his doom is sure: One little word shall fell him. (A Mighty Fortress)

…Prone to wander, Lord, I feel it, Prone to leave the God I love: Here’s my heart, O take and seal it, Seal it for Thy courts above. (Come, Thou Fount of Every Blessing)

…Judge not the Lord by feeble sense, But trust Him for His grace; Behind a frowning providence He hides a smiling face. (God Moves in a Mysterious Way)

Great hymns are those that communicate the excellencies of the triune God and sound doctrine, encourage a right heart response, and do so in an appealing and enduring musical form. From childhood, these hymns were graven in my mind and, after Christ brought me to saving faith, these hymns became graven in my heart. Will this be true for our children, too?

Here are a few helpful suggestions for how to incorporate hymns into your family devotional time or a Sunday school setting:

  • Tell the children about the composer and circumstances surrounding the writing of the hymn. (Hymns for a Kid’s Heart is a wonderful resource for this.)
  • Explain difficult words or concepts—a little bit each week.
  • Try introducing one new hymn every month, or 4-6 learned over the course of a Sunday school year.
  • Develop simple hand/body motions to help younger children focus.

(From a seminar titled “Leading Children in God-Centered Worship” by Pam Grano)

Also, here is a post with two recommendations for hymn books for your family.

A Bible Christian I will be For Christ

A Bible Christian I will be,
For Christ has done so much for me;
Then how could I my Lord deny,
And on the words of men rely?

The Bible’s good enough for me,
The Bible’s truth my creed shall be;
From human creeds I turn away,
I stand for Christ alone today.

Tho’ many follow human plans,
Believe the creeds set up by man;
No other creed have I today
Than Christ, who is the Truth, the Way.

The Bible’s good enough for me,
The Bible’s truth my creed shall be;
From human creeds I turn away,
I stand for Christ alone today.

The Word by inspiration giv’n,
The chart that points
the way to Heav’n;
On this I dare and will depend,
And with my life its truth defend.

The Bible’s good enough for me,
The Bible’s truth my creed shall be;
From human creeds I turn away,
I stand for Christ alone today.

Believe in Christ, repent of sin,
Confess your faith,
and peace you’ll win;
Then ’neath the water with Him go,
And you His peace and joy shall know.

The Bible’s good enough for me,
The Bible’s truth my creed shall be;
From human creeds I turn away,
I stand for Christ alone today.

Truth hymns bible

I have the privilege of contributing to He Reads Truth, a website of whose purpose is “To help men become who we were made to be, by doing what we were made to do, by the power and provision that God has given us to do it, for the glory of Jesus Christ.” They do this by providing scripture reading plans accompanied by reflections that can be accessed for free online or purchased as print books. For those of you looking to engage scripture in a fresh way, these studies/plans will refresh your soul and engage your mind.

What follows is the piece I wrote for the "Hymns" reading plan. You can find the full planHERE.

Day 4: "Be Still, My Soul"
Psalm 62, Isaiah 61:1-3, Luke 8:22-25, James 5:7-8

Several years ago, my wife wanted to get backyard chickens, and I fought it. I thought the idea was crazy. We live in the city—in the suburbs. Chickens? Really? But she wore me down. And it’s been one of the best parenting decision we’ve ever made. Our kids love them. They’ve named them. And through feeding, collecting eggs, and scooping chicken poop, my daughters have learned all kinds of things about daily responsibility.

But one of the most significant moments came on the day a dog jumped our back fence and killed two of our hens. My daughters’ hearts were broken. I disposed of the bodies, and that night we had a chicken funeral. We went around the dinner table, each sharing our favorite memories of Rebekah and Matilda. We’re not the most sentimental family, but we still grieved. I can remember sitting on the bed that evening with my youngest while she cried. She needed her dad to help her find rest.

A mentor of mine once told me, “Life is full of unfinished symphonies.” It’s true. In this fallen world, things are always falling apart. We face cancer, lost jobs, and disability. Hopes and dreams are deferred. Loved ones die. But even when we feel life’s brokenness more than we’ve ever felt it before, God is still with us. We can patiently bear our cross of grief and pain, because He is on our side.

Jesus calls us to come to him with our griefs and fears. He wants to bear them. Let Him quiet your soul today. When I feel anxious, grieved, and oppressed, my tendency is either to run to my friends or to make myself busy in order to take my mind off the griefs and worries. This isn’t wrong, but Psalm 62 reminds me of my need to first bring my griefs to my Father, just as my little girl brought hers to me. We find true rest in God alone; our hope comes from Him (Psalm 62:1, 5). People and things will always let us down, but God remains faithful (Psalm 62:9-12).

This can be hard to trust when we experience loss and injustice (Sometimes we just want to be mad at the neighbors’ dog!) We can’t always trace out what God is doing, but we know that he orders and provides. Rest and hope are found in remembering his power and providence over all of life’s storms (Luke 8:22-25). One day, he’ll show us the end of the symphony he’s writing for us. He’ll correct the prevailing forms of injustice we experience in this world. And, for his people, Jesus will repay--from his own fullness--all that He has previously taken away (Isaiah 62:3).

6 Hymns That Have Been Teaching You Bad Theology

2. "Blessed Assurance"

Slide 2 of 6

This is such a beloved hymn, I’m confident I’ll get angry comments on this one. But have you ever actually thought through the lyrics and compared them to your walk with Christ? When have you had perfect submission? Ever experienced perfect delight, this side of glory? All is at rest? Really?

Fanny Crosby co-wrote this with Phoebe Palmer. The two women were heavily steeped in Keswick theology and Higher-Christian life teaching. This is a theology which teaches that if a Christian can perfectly surrender their flesh to Christ then they’ll experience perfect delight. 

Dan Phillips outlines the problem with this theology about as well and succinctly as I’ve read:

The effect of all this was that I was constantly taking my spiritual pulse, constantly checking within, freezing up, paralyzed, spiraling down into deeper and deeper morbid introspection and depression.  In the name of “looking to Jesus” (revealed in His Word) I was constantly looking to myself, within myself.  (Phillips, The World-Tilting Gospel, 251-52)

So where do we get our perfect delight from? This hymn would say it comes from perfectly submitted. A naive reading of these words could drive us into ourselves to find assurance. But the Scriptures drive us to the finished work of Christ and not into analyzing the level of our submission. I love the thought of praising my Savior all the day long but the Keswick theology smattered through this hymn makes me think twice about what I'm singing.
