This is a second page for my Favorite Hymns MiniBook . . . I've used Katies Inspiration Template to coordinate with her Modern Vintage Template No. 1. I am almost finished with a third page using Katie's Modern Vintage Layered Template Scrap Pack No. 01.


Journaling: We were living on the base at Ft. Monmouth, New Jersey and on went to church at the base Protestant Chapel. Beth was two and didn't like to be left in the chapel nursery, so we took her to church with us. Sometimes I would need to take her out of the service, but other times she behaved pretty well. She liked it when we sang hymns and especially liked this old hymn. Her sweet little voice would sing "holy, holy, holy" over and over again. When we would sing the next song, she would sing "holy, holy, holy" again!


"Holy, Holy, Holy" was written by Reginald Heber, an Anglican clergyman, nearly two centuries ago. He wrote hymns in an attempt to improve the singing in his little congregation at Hodnet, near Birmingham, England. Most congregations in those days sang the Psalter, but most sang it badly. To inject a bit of spirit in the hymn-singing, Heber introduced his congregation to some of the modern church music of his day, to include John Newton's Amazing Grace. He also wrote dozens of hymns, the best-known being this one. He wrote it for Trinity Sunday, as evidenced by the words, "God in three persons, blessed Trinity", in the first and last verses. This hymn has blessed people all over the world. Translated into many languages and sung in many tongues, it was Rev. Heber's most enduring gift to the church.
