Hymns can help!

I love hymns because they help me feel close to God. When I feel close to God, I feel like I know that God is good and that God is with me.

One day my mom took me to the bike track, but I was scared of going down bumpy hills. I decided to sing Hymn 1 from the Christian Science Hymnal. It says,

                         Be Thou, O God, exalted high; 
                         And as Thy glory fills the sky, 
                         So let it be on earth displayed, 
                         Till Thou art here and now obeyed. 
                                                  (Tate and Brady

I picked that hymn because it was the hymn I could remember best when I was scared.

After I sang it, I wasn’t afraid, and I was excited to try the bumpy trails again. I started riding, and I could do it. It wasn’t scary!

One day I wrote my own hymn. I named it “God is good!” The words are: 

                         God is good!
                         You don’t hear Him with your ears, 
                         but you hear Him with your heart.
                         He loves you a lot,
                         so listen to God.
                         Honor Him with love.
                         When you are scared, turn to God.

If you want to write your own hymn, you can. All you need to do is think about how good God is and tell that in your hymn. Have fun!

We'd love to hear from you!
