hymns, so much more than CCM, with only a few exceptions. I find organs and choirs much easier to worship with than rock bands. And I love lyrics that make you think,
and meditate on the glories of God while
you're singing, instead of just saying, "Yes Lord, yes Lord" a dozen times - which is important to say, but loses its impact very quickly because of dull repetition.
Anyway, my absolute favorites:
Great Is Thy Faithfulness
How Firm a Foundation (there is nothing
more comforting when you're dealing with PTSD after a large earthquake)
All People That On Earth Do Dwell (same tune that is often used for the Doxology)
O Worship the King
The God of Abraham Praise
How Shall the Young Direct Their Way?
Guide Me, O Thou Great Jehovah
Crown Him with Many Crowns (I picked it at random one time during family devotions, and fell instantly in love with it)
A Mighty Fortress
What Child Is This?
O Holy Night (Is that a hymn? It's not in my hymnal....)
It Came upon a Midnight Clear
O Sacred Head Now Wounded (arranged by J.S. Bach, by the way!)
Up from the Grave He Arose
...yeah, I love hymns
You can find out things about the past that you never knew. And from what you've learned, you may see some things differently in the present. You're the one that changes. Not the past.

"There's a difference between maliciously offending somebody - on purpose - and somebody being offended by...truth. If you're offended by the truth,
that's your problem. I have no obligation to not offend you if I'm speaking the truth. The truth is supposed
to offend you; that's how you know you don't got it."
