Great Hymns to start the New Year (with cool named authors)

We sang two of my favorite hymns this morning- Praise the Savior and Of the Father's Love Begotten.

Both have ancient words written by guys with really cool names.

Venantius Fortunatus (Praise the Savior written around the 6th Century )

Marcus Aurelius Clemens Prudentius (Of the Father's Love Begotten written around the 5th Century)

I have always been impressed with how thoroughly Trinitarian these hymns are. They give a very worthy pattern for writing good hymns.

Evermore and evermore. No better thought to sing in the New Year, giving praise to our Lord.
