What a treasure it is to have beautiful hymns to listen to throughout the day and even more wonderful is have a daughter who likes to play them on her piano. Currently, my daughter is preparing to give music lessons to her four younger siblings for the summer. I'm sure this will be a learning experience for all, not just the siblings!
Hymns are wonderful to incorporate into our childrens life. They are rich in meaning and doctrine. If you would've told me 10 years ago that I would adore hymns today I might have laughed but now I am in love with the timeless hymns of our forefathers and encourage hymns in our home as much as possible.
My current favorite hymn is "For the Beauty of the Earth" performed by The London Festival Orchestra. I don't think there is anything more beautiful than a hymn that makes you revel at the glory of God's handiwork. You can find this beautiful hymn and many others on the CD '50 Most Loved Hymns'.
