Here are a few of the hymns we sing:
Spirit of Gentleness is a very popular hymn in our denomination. We always sing it on the Day of Pentecost, as well as on other special days of the year when we are especially mindful of the Holy Spirit’s presence.
The hymn God Our Maker Whose First Summons was written to commemorate the fiftieth anniversary of the formation of the United Church of Christ. The hymn tune, Cwm Rhondda, was exactly one hundred years old at the time the text was written.
Our main worship book for forty years was the 1974 Hymnal of the United Church of Christ. One of our favorite hymns that isn’t found in our new hymnal is this one, Christ Is the World’s True Light:
One hymn that was not in our old hymnal but is found in our current one is Brian Wren’s Bring Many Names:
Because most Hungarian Reformed churches in the USA are part of our denomination, the stirring hymn Lift Thy Head, O Zion Weeping (The Hymn of the Hungarian Galley Slaves) from their tradition is found in hymnals of the UCC. It is not in our current Glory to God hymnal (published by the PCUSA), but we still sing it from time to time.
