Music Ministry Moment
One hymn that became a favorite of mine as a kid was “Holy, Holy, Holy! Lord God Almighty” (UMH 64). We sang it fairly often during services, it was one that was easier to learn as a kid, and the music just sounded happy when I was young. Those reasons are probably one of the reasons I liked it so much. Now as I’m older, I do agree that the music is still joyful sounding, but it’s so much more than that. The music itself isn’t necessarily loud, but is a nice medium loudness that supports the lyrics that are praising the Trinity telling how we are in awe of God’s power and might.
One of my favorite memories of this hymn growing up is that this was on one of a Christian acapella group’s cassette tapes that my parents had playing on repeat in the car. The group is named “Acapella” and recorded their own versions of well-known hymns. There were a few other tapes in the car like Harry Belafonte, Alabama, and other Christian acapella tapes. If I had a choice, I’d always choose Acapella or a group named “Glad” that were also a Christian acapella group because their music sounded different. I would sing the hymns on those tapes, especially “Holy, Holy, Holy” because of how cool their version sounded. I still have a playlist of Glad and other Christian acapella groups because of the memories I have of riding in the car to them, but now I simply use a streaming service to listen to them.
My hope is that this hymn is able to bring give you a sense that God is mightier and more powerful than anything that may come your way, and that you’re able to trust in God more because of it. My constant prayer is that you and your family remain safe and healthy through the pandemic.
With the Spirit of Trust and Joy,
