The Hymns Project

September 10, 2013

We are proud to announce “The Hymns Project” by Modern Worship is here at long last. 

The resilience of hymns in the Church today is a testament to the richness of theological, lyrical, and musical depth contained in our hymnals. Each of these hymns holds a special place in our hearts and in the hearts of our congregation. Doxology, penned by Thomas Ken and Louis Bourgeois, has echoed through the halls of churches, inspiring faithful worshipers for nearly half a millennia. This song has been significant us and to our congregation. 
One day, we crawled through a small passageway behind the organ and emerged in a light chamber behind the sanctuary cross, which was fashioned from the beams of the old chapel. We set up a microphone and recorded Doxology Part I and II. Our main purpose was to take advantage of the rich acoustics in this chamber, but we later realized the beauty of how this symbolizes the continuity between the modern and the traditional, the old and the new, the past and the present, and our desire to worship at the foot of the cross. It is a slice of who we are as a church, one body of Christ, with different languages of worship, but all coming to the cross. 
This project was made by and for the Church to glorify the Lord, Jesus Christ. We are so thankful for the support of our church and for the opportunity to make this project. Praise God from whom all blessings flow, praise Him all creatures here below, praise Him above ye heavenly host, praise Father, Son, and Holy Ghost. Amen.
