New Hymn: Praise Our Savior, Jesus Christ

Note: this hymn has been updated, so I am republishing this post.

I am thrilled to recommend a new hymn collaboration between Pastor Chris Anderson and Dr. Paul Jones. This is truly a wonderful example of a modern hymn that continues in a long tradition of rich hymnody.

The text is profound doctrinally, intentionally gospel-centered, and joyfully Christ-exalting. The tune supports the text brilliantly. It is harmonically fresh and structurally sound. Like the text, it is not immediately accessible; it is a deep well to which a worshiper can come often for a refreshing drink.

Best of all, the hymn is free for use, truly a ministry to Christ’s Church. I urge you to download the hymn and teach it to your congregation.

This is a hymn that is bound to stand the test of time.
