Episodes

we're finally bringing you the song that started it all. Be Still My Soul is a beautiful hymn, full of comfort and challenge for us as believers and it's one that can be sung at the best of times and the worst of times.

Join us as we move from Lutheran Pietism to Finnish nationalism to Japanese internment camps, following the tumultuous yet providential history and impact of this incredible song.

We also answer a listener question from the Hymnpartial Mailbag: How did the podcast get started?

We're continuing on the theme of the sovereignty of God with a newer song, Behold Our God. There's nothing better than songs that effectively plagiarise Scripture and the conversation turns to whether we're seeing a greater hunger then ever before for songs that remind us God is more than just a warm hug when we feel down - so much more! Join us as we delight in the One True God!

In this episode we do a quick recap of the life of Isaac Watts, take a moment to bask in the wonder of our freedom in Christ, and speculate on whether our hymn-writer was referencing Milton or Paul (as if we'd know!).

The important thing to remember as we face each of our struggles, is that God is still on his throne, he's sovereign and he's in control. So when you find yourself, weary, worn, stressed, or just tempted to gloominess, come back to this song and the Psalm it's based on, and remember who's really running the show.

Our episode this week is fun and relaxed as we talk about the best (and worst) Christmas songs, play some seasonal games, and share with you some Scripture passages that have been on our minds in the lead up to this Christmas. What do YOU think are the best and worst Christmas songs? Which ones do you like so much you sing all year round? And did you guess the badly explained movies correctly?

This week we bring you a song that, coincidentally, is one of the finalists or our Battle of the Carols. Even after Monet reveals the complex story of O Come, All Ye Faithful, we still have no idea where it came from or who wrote it, but Cara decides she'll say it's hers since just about everybody else has claimed it as their own. Would you dare argue with the king of Portugal?

We also strip back all that rupapumpumming and uncover the story behind the well-known song, Little Drummer Boy. It's beautiful for sure, but is the heart behind it enough to make it a song we should be singing in church?

We're back again with our second Christmas episode. This time, we're talking about ye olde classic, Hark the Herald Angels Sing. We've got some serious saltiness about people tweaking other people's lyrics, an accidental Christmas song that's not actually about Christmas, and another one of those popular songs that maybe isn't as deep and spiritual as it sounds (but we still like it). There's a little bit of Wesley, a little bit of Watts, and a little bit of what-on-earth.

We are very much excited here at Hymnpartial - Christmas is coming and we are so ready for it (if you can't tell)! In this week's episode, we're talking about how the story behind Silent Night could have been written by Hallmark, whether Away in a Manger is just a little bit creepy, and why on earth anyone is still singing Little Donkey. Join us as we kick off the Christmas season!

Since our very first episode on Amazing Grace has continued to be our most popular, we thought that it might be fun to do an entire episode on the life of its author, John Newton. With all the social justice stuff and with Black Lives Matter becoming such a household name this year, the conversation felt all the more pertinent.

You see, John Newton was a slave trader, and contrary to the popular narrative, he continued in that trade even after his dramatic conversion. In this episode, we talk about his experiences on both sides of slavery, how we all struggle with sanctification, and whether John Newton's activities in earlier life mean we should be slower to sing his songs.

Don't worry, we're not abandoning our reformed roots and claiming to be having audible chats with Jesus, we're just looking at a rather wonderful hymn, I Heard the Voice of Jesus Say.

This week, we're introduced to Horatius Bonar, Monet takes us on a whistle-stop tour of the 1843 schism in the Church of Scotland, and we find ourselves encouraged by the reminder of the wonderful comfort of the presence of God with us.

Whip out your passports, we're off on a journey around the world this week as we trace the development of the song we now know as How Great Thou Art. From the sea storms of Sweden to the sweeping beauty of the Carpathian mountains, to the post-war refugee camps of Sussex, this popular hymn journeyed across four languages over fifty years before it found itself in the form we know today.

 

Do you know any of the extra verses or different translations of this song? Have you ever come across 'the Martin Luther of Russia'? And did you know this song was originally Swedish?
