Favorite lds songs?

Discussions about holding onto your faith and beliefs, whether by staying LDS or by exploring and participating in other churches or faiths. The belief in any higher power (including God, Christ, Buddha, or Jedi) is true in this forum. Be kind to others.

From Saturday's Warrior, Brace Me Up

I Heard The Bells On Christmas Day (I'm really glad we have this in the hymnal, I haven't seen it too many other places)

I agree with Document about I'll Walk With You.

Sing Your Way Home
I Often Go Walking
My favorites too! (ha - reminds me of Nacho Libre :) )

I've especially been moved by the 3rd & 4th verses, "And in despair I bowed my head: "There is no peace on earth' I said, 'For hate is strong and mocks the song of peace on earth, good will to men.' Then pealed the bells more loud and deep: 'God is not dead, nor doth he sleep; The wrong shall fail, the right prevail, With peace on earth, good will to men.'"

I've dog-eared my favorites in our hymn book and primary book at home - for FHEs.

I saw on the interwebs that Nacho Libre is coming to Netflix in March!

Can we add songs from Nacho Libre?

Good faith does not require evidence, but it also does not turn a blind eye to that evidence. Otherwise, it becomes misplaced faith.

Wow - beautiful. Is that the original lyrics to the tune of "Be still my soul"?
I love both songs really - in fact, I included it in a group of lds songs I like and regularly play. And my silly kids make fun of it and say, "He stole my soul..."

The words of this Finlandia Hymn are very moving.

Another alternative set of words to Jean Sibelius' hymn in the Finlandia Symphony was that once sung by the Mormon Tabernacle Choir in concert with Eugene Ormandy and the Philadephia Philharmonic Orchestra. This alternative wording is also quite beautiful:

On great, lone hills, where tempests brood and gather,
Primeval Earth, against primeval sky,
We, faring forth, possessed by fervent longing,
Have found a throne, eternal and high,
Have knelt at last in wordless adoration,
Till fire and whirlwind have both gone by.

With ardent song we greet the golden morning.
By faith upborne, remember not the night.
The whole wide world, triumphant hails the dawning.
God walks abroad in garments of might,
The hills, behold, are now a path of splendor,
Transfigured all, and all crowned with light.


https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=J3cqNgcXWSc

Primeval Earth, against primeval sky, congers up wonderful images of a shy stegosaurus munching on ferns right outside the primeval Manti Temple.

So poetic and beautiful.
Makes me wish there were hymns that focused more on general symbolism (as that does with nature and God), rather than specific.

It wasn't my favorite, but as a child I remember singing "Our Primary Colors". It was back in the days where we had Primary during the week after school. Yeah, I'm pretty old I guess. I thought of this song recently, this was the first time I looked it up. I was surprised it was still out there. Maybe it's in the song book, don't know. Here are the words and the tune...

I hear this to the tune of Danny Boy in my head. I suppose the meter must be similar between the melodies.

My favorite was always: Rock Of Ages.


Wait...


Never-mind. I liked Def Leppard's Rock of Ages, not the hymnal version.

Was Rock of Ages in the hymnal? I can't remember, it's in pretty much every other church's hymns tho.

This is what I listen to for spiritual experience music these days:

I believe in Christ, because it´s generic Christian, Christ-centered, personal, and heartfelt.

Popcorn Popping, and Give Said The little Stream. Primary was fun and happy in those days when we sang those.
