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.
