Hymns of Wonder, Thanksgiving and Praise

Offering worship to the Creator in ways old and new

The story of creation and redemption has inspired Christians throughout the ages to sing God’s praises. Here we list hymns of wonder, praise and thanksgiving inspired by creation. Some of them may be familiar – many may not be. We pray that they will help you in your worship of God.
