Today, Florissant Presbyterian Church held a hymn festival service.  This means that other than scripture, communion and a hand full of prayers, the rest of the service consisted of hymns.  Music is, conveniently, my favorite way to pray.  This was our opening hymn and one of my favorites.  That said, this isn’t us.  We are, on average, a tad older.

The reason behind this hymn fest is that we got a new hymnal full of songs, like this one, from all over the world.  When we sing songs like this one from Cameroon, we join with our sisters and brothers world wide in Praising the Lord, Alleluia.
