The three hymns we reviewed in this article discuss the themes of holiness, righteousness, and consecration. The hymns can be used or sung during submission or surrendering to God, giving life to Christ, and during Christmas. The keyboardist will lead us through each stanza to learn the tunes and sing them.

1. Holy Holy  Holy

This hymn magnifies the greatness of God. It points to setting ourselves on the throne of God in which nothing and no one will stain our white garments. The Hymn reminds us that as God is holy, we too as followers must be holy.

Holy, holy holy! Lord

Almighty

Early in the morning our song

Shall rise to Thee;

Holy, holy, holy, merciful and

Mighty!

God over all who rules eternity

The stanza you read above emphasizes that the Lord almighty is holy and we too must be holy.  The writer said that early in the morning, we should let our song go up into our almighty God. It is because he is merciful and mighty! He rules over people and eternity. Will you magnify the holy name of God? Let us follow the keyboardist to lead us into the rhythm as we follow to sing and learn.

 Holy, holy, holy! All the saints

Adore Thee

Casting down their golden

Crowns around the glassy sea;

Cherubim and Seraphim falling

Down before Thee

Who wert, and art, and overcome

Shall be

The second stanza confirms how all the saints adore Him and His mighty name. They cast down their golden in respect and honor to the name of God.  Cherubim and Seraphim are falling around His crowns and before Thee. The writer implores us to bow for the name of God and Jesus because He is worthy to be praised. Take the second stanza as you follow the keyboardist to sing and learn.

Holy, holy holy! Though the darkness hides Thee,

Though the eye of sinful man Thy

Glory may not see

Only Thou art holy; there is none

Beside Thee

Perfect in power, in love, and in purity

The stanza three affirms how the darkness hides His holy name. The eyes of sinful man will not see His glory because there is none except His only one. Our God is perfect in power, in love, and in purity. Are you a sinner, remember that you cannot see the wonderful glory of God unless you are holy. The darkness has no room in the abode of the Lord. Let us follow the keyboardist sing the last stanza, and learn the rhythm.

2. Hark! The Herald Angels Sing

This is a hymn that is commonly sung during Christmas. It is the hymn celebrating the birth of Jesus Christ. It points us to how the angels in the heavens are singing about the newborn baby, Jesus Christ. I will analyze three stanzas here and you will listen to the keyboardist for rhythm and learn the tune.

Hark! The herald angels sing,

Glory to the newborn King,

Peace on earth, and mercy mild,

God and sinners reconciled,

Joyful, all ye nations, rise,

Join the triumph of the skies,

With angelic hosts proclaim

Christ is born in Bethlehem!

The stanza one of the hymn appreciates the coming of Jesus Christ to this world. The angel in heaven sings glorifying to the newborn as Jesus Christ brings peace and mercy on earth in which God and sinners come into reconciliation. All the world and nations rise for joy because Jesus Christ has trumped. The Angels proclaim that Jesus Christ was born in Bethlehem!  Every Christian must appreciate the coming of Jesus Christ into your life. Joy and peace must emerge in your life and that concerns you. Let us follow the keyboardist to learn the tune and sing it from the joy of your heart.

Christ, be the highest heaven adored,

Christ, the everlasting Lord,

Late in time, behold Him come,

Offspring of a virgin’s womb,

Veiled in flesh the Godhead sees,

Hail the incarnate Deity!

Pleased as a man with men to

Dwell,

Jesus our Immanuel.

Hark! The herald angels sing,

Glory to the newborn King

The second stanza of the hymn recognizes Christ as someone adored in the highest heaven; the everlasting Lord. Jesus Christ came from a virgin’s womb in the late time. We have to hail Him. Jesus Christ was seen as a man of many things. He is our Emmanuel. Recognize Him and His name. That is what the angels are singing. We must give glory to the newborn king as the angels do. All Christians must recognize Jesus Christ as the highest King that no king can compete with him. We shall listen again to the tune of this stanza and learn.

Hail the heaven-born Prince of Peace!

Hail the Sun of righteousness!

Risen with healing in His wings

 Light and life to all He brings,

Mild He lays His glory by,

Born that man no more may die,

Born to raise the sons of earth,

Born to give them a second birth,

Hark! The herald angels sing,

Glory to the newborn King,

The third stanza of the hymn hailed the Prince of Peace because He is the sun of righteousness! Jesus Christ brought Light and life to all the nations and He was risen with healing in His wings. The writer sees Jesus Christ as the King of Kings who lays His glory through mildness and was born to raise no more; Jesus Christ also raised the sons of earth. The angels of the Lord sing, Glory to the newborn King. All Christians must hail the Prince of Peace, the Son of righteousness and light and life as the angels in heaven are singing and hailing Him.

3. Consecration

This hymn is the one that advocates for keeping one holy and setting one apart from any iniquity. When you consecrated, you stood out of the group of sinners. Many sins are prevalent in our society these days. Even among these-day Christians, there are feasible sins and vices. That is why the writer says that if we should be an ambassador of Christ, we have to set ourselves apart.

Take my life and let it be

Consecrated, Lord to Thee,

Take my hands and let them move,

At the impulse of Thy love,

All to Thee, all to Thee,

Consecrated, Lord, to Thee

This stanza seeks God to set his life apart for the Lord; The writer asks God to take his hands and then move for God with love, and he also begs God to consecrate him to the Lord. Have you consecrated your life totally to the Lord? I think it is necessary! We shall listen to the tune of the hymn, sing it, and learn further.

Take my feet and let them be

Swift and beautiful for Thee,

Take my voice and let me sing

Always only for my King.

All to Thee, all to Thee,

Consecrated, Lord, to Thee.

The second stanza of the hymn asks God to use his feet for the glory of Him. The writer also beds God that His voice too must be used to sing for Him. This is because all is for God and he must surrender everything to the almighty God. The writer said he consecrated everything to Him. All Christians must be ready to surrender to God. Listen and learn from the keyboardist as you are singing it.

Take my lips and let them be

Filled with messages from Thee,

Take my silver and my gold,

Not a mite would I withhold.

All to Thee, all to Thee,

Consecrated, Lord, to Thee

The stanza explains that the writer sees his lips that can be filled with messages of God. He also sees every lustrous thing he has as God. He said he did not withhold anything from God. The writer concludes that God has everything. Brethren, have you surrendered all for God? It is a lesson for everyone. Listen to the tune of the hymn, sing, and learn more.

Take my love, my God, I pour

At Thy feet its treasure store,

Take me, and I will be

Ever, only, all for Thee.

All to Thee, all to Thee,

Consecrated, Lord, to Thee.

The writer in the last stanza asks God to take the love he poured at His feet and everything the writer has, he surrendered them for God to use. He consecrated all for God so that the Lord would be in charge of all. As a Christian, have you left and consecrated all for God? Let the Lord be in charge of everything in your life. You can listen to the tune of this stanza, sing and learn more.
