The Greatest Hymn Ever: What Will Matter Most in 50 Years and 50 Millennia

What is the greatest hymn of all time?

The Hymn Society in the United States and Canada recently addressed that question. In their annual conference in Dallas, they voted using their society’s website, on Facebook, and in person during a competition set up with brackets like the NCAA basketball tournament.

If you thought the answer is “Amazing Grace,” you need more grace. It turns out, “Holy, Holy, Holy” won the title.

These are the 6 Beautiful Songs Billy Graham Chose for His Funeral Service

The Rev. Billy Graham’s funeral was held today, March 2nd in Charlotte, North Carolina. As ChristianHeadlines.com previously reported, about 2,000 people were in attendance, including President Trump and Vice President Mike Pence.

The funeral took place in front of the Billy Graham Library in a massive 28,000-square-foot white tent, which was a throwback to Graham’s famous crusade in Los Angeles in 1949, which many believe solidified his status as a renowned evangelist.

Graham had been clear that he wanted his funeral service to reflect the message of the gospel which he spent his life preaching. Even his headstone will have the simple yet fitting phrase: “Preacher of the gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ.”

To that end, he specifically chose six hymns that beautifully communicate the gospel message which he wanted people to sing at his funeral. ChristianityToday.com listed the six songs Graham chose:
