5 Best Quotes on Hymns + Free Printable - Coffee & Conversation

I am not a fan of QUOTES

In fact sometimes I get very annoyed at how people almost treat a quote
 as more important than the Word of God

I actually wrote a blog post about Do We Really Need This Quote?

I'm taking a theme of HYMNS for this post, again looking for only quotes from people I would respect. 

So in the list below I will quote

Not  Joel Osteen   but   J.C. Ryle

  Not  Beth Moore   but   Joni Eareckson Tada   

Not  Priscilla Shirer    but   Fanny Crosby

1.  J.C. Ryle


"Good hymns are an immense blessing to the Church.   They train people for heaven, where praise is one of the principal occupations."

2.  Joni Eareckson Tada 

"What a way to learn great theology!
That's what comes to mind whenever 
I sing these old hymns.
"And Can It Be" is like putting the doctrine of Salvation to music.
"Come Thou Fount of Every Blessing" is a melodic lesson in grace.
No wonder good hymns make for strong faith."

3.  Keith Getty
"Paul commands the Church to let the word of Christ dwell in us richly when we meet together, singing psalms, hymns, and spiritual songs. It seems clear here that style is not the important issue as much as the depth of content."

4.  Fanny Crosby

"It seemed intended by the blessed providence of God that I should be blind all my life, and I thank him for the dispensation. If perfect earthly sight were offered me tomorrow I would not accept it. I might not have sung hymns to the praise of God if I had been distracted by the beautiful and interesting things about me."

5.  Kenneth W. Osbeck, 101 Hymn Stories: The Inspiring True Stories Behind 101 Favorite Hymns

"I would rather have written the hymns of Wesley's than to have the fame of all the kings that ever sat on earth; it is more glorious, it has more power in it."
