Behind the Music

This week, we will be singing a reimagined version of the hymn text How Firm a Foundation. This hymn, published in 1787 by John Rippon in A Selection of Hymns from the Best Authors, was intended to be an appendix to Dr. Watts' Psalms and Hymns, known as "Rippon's Selection". The author for this hymn text is unknown, and the most often sung tune for the hymn wasn't published until 1832. Since there is not an in-depth story to this hymn text, I am going to send you over to Worship Together and let you check out the resources and story behind this modern arrangement for How Firm A Foundation. Enjoy!

We are looking forward to singing together this Sunday!
