I have much work to do on this site, and it is challenging to find the time to work on it; but I intend to record a tune as an audio file for each hymn, as well as put links to the English and Spanish words for each (I did the first three; excuse the misspellings – particularly in the Spanish, for now; the first versions I did were scanned to .rtf format, which distorted some spelling. I will re-do them, and the others, either in .jpg, or .pdf when I can devote some more time to this.)
When a man or woman is converted to Christ by the effectual calling and grace of our Lord, and the exercise of the divine gift of faith in Him, he or she embarks on the Pilgrim’s journey as a Christian through this barren land. There is a devil. There is our old nature. There is the temptations of the flesh, the lust of the eyes, the pride of life… all warring against the soul. As the scripture exhorts us, “singing to yourselves in hymns, psalms…”, memorizing and singing the great Hymns of the Faith can be a great help in our battle. For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against … the rulers of the darkness of this world (Eph. 6:12, I believe…)
The hymns I put on this site are compiled and put together by the pastor of the church I attend, on a weekly basis for singing at church – but the printed sheets of them are given out at the end of the Sunday evening service, with the exhortation to use them in our warfare, as I have mentioned above. I intend to publish more of them here, for brothers and sisters and friends to use, and benefit from them. They are I believe, of great value – and far more so than the modern hymns I have seen. These are the old classics, which have stood the test of time; of the saints in warfare over the decades, and centuries.
