50 Hymns to Gladden Your Heart

Snow White’s dwarfs may have whistled while they work, but I prefer singing hymns. That’s why I keep a hymnal in my kitchen, right next to the sink, for easy reference. And today I’m sharing 50 of my all-time favorite hymns (click this link to download a printable list). I hope they’ll gladden your heart as much as they do mine!

Most of the songs on this list are hymns I grew up singing. I’ve recorded a few of them acapella (linked below), but will try to add more as I am able. Feel free to grab a hymnal and sing along!

    1. The short answer is no, Elise, I don’t currently have any playlists to share, but I might be able to create one. Are you wanting a playlist of the a cappella hymns I recorded and posted on my website because you’d like to listen/sing along without having to start and stop each hymn individually? Or are you wanting a playlist of hymns sung by professional musicians and were checking to see if I might have already put together such a collection? I could probably figure out a way to share the a cappella collection without too much trouble. Not so sure about the professionally recorded hymns.
