HYMNS WE WON’T SING   Leave a comment

When you are singing a worship chorus or hymn in church, or in a group, or just by yourself, do you ever think to yourself, “We won’t be singing THAT in heaven!”  No?  Is that just me that does that?

I try not to be “so heavenly minded that I am no earthly good”, but I do think about my final home.  People who adopt pets talk about bringing them to their “forever home”.  My husband and I just adopted two cats, so I have recent experience with that phrase.  This earth is not my home.  I do my best while I am here, but I am looking forward to my forever home – to be with God in heaven, to see Jesus face to face, to see my mansion, to watch and listen to the angels and heavenly creatures worshiping God.  So many things to look forward to!

I am sure there will be singing in heaven.  That’s not in the Bible – that is just me talking.  So whenever I sing a worship chorus or hear a hymn, I can’t help thinking, “Yup – that will be one we can sing in heaven”.  Or, “I love this song, but I’m looking forward to the day when we won’t be singing it anymore”.

I started to make a list of hymns we would sing in heaven, but actually the list of hymns we won’t sing is easier to compile.  How many can you guess without looking?  How many do you think are on my list – the hymns we won’t sing once we get to heaven?  10?  20?  30?  I chose from a list I found, and I didn’t pick every one – just the most popular and/or ones I have sung or heard.  So how many do you think?  Go ahead – Google it and take a guess.  I’ll wait.

Back?  Ready?  Scroll down and take a look at my list.  Did you get the same ones?

This list (which, as I said, is not exhaustive) has 47 hymns on it that, while marvelous and truly wonderful to sing, we will never sing again once we are in heaven!

And just for fun – here is a list of hymns I think we will sing in heaven.  Just according to me – there is no Biblical backing for this list or my thinking we will sing in heaven.

A Mighty Fortress Is Our God

Alas And Did My Savior Bleed

Amazing Grace
