One of the very best hymns of the church - theologically impeccable and masterfully written. Used to be my very favorite till I discovered Once to Every Man and Nation.
An interesting exchange would be for people to identify (as has Kelso) hymns that are of great importance or meaning to them. I suspect we have all had Kelso's experience of having one primary favorite at a particular time only to have that give way to something else as time passes (for me in my youth it was "Stand up, Stand up for Jesus", now I find myself humming "God of Grace and God of Glory" a good bit as I putter around in old age - I guess that tracks my career progression from being a pugnacious fighter to being a doddering old futzer). I tend to go for the "rousers" as opposed to some of the more stately items, but chacun a son gout, as they say in Nantes, when not formulating Edicts.Scout
