Clay: Top Ten Hymns To Teach Your Church

By Thomas Clay

“If I were starting a church plant or beginning at a new church today here are the first ten hymns out of the hymnal I would teach (if not already known by the congregation):

1. Come Thou Fount Of Every Blessing—Robinson

2. When I Survey The Wondrous Cross—Watts

3. And Can It Be?—Wesley

4. Hallelujah What A Savior—Bliss

5. It Is Well With My Soul—Spafford

6. And Will The Judge Descend?—Doddridge

7. Stricken Smitten And Afflicted—Kelly

8. Praise To The Lord The Almighty—Neander

9. A Mighty Fortress Is Our God—Luther

10. How Sweet And Awful (Awesome)—Watts

Notice that I said that these were the first ten I would teach. That’s not to say that these are the only ones. Most all of these hymns can be found in The Baptist Hymnal, The Celebration Hymnal, and The Hymnal For Worship And Celebration. Numbers 7, and 10 can be found in The Trinity Hymnal. Number 6 can be found by contacting my at
