Psalm 95:1 Let us sing for joy to the LORD
Hymn 420: When in Our Music God is Glorified
Vote in September and October for your favorite (or least-favorite)of our rich heritage of 720 hymns. The top ten favorites will be sung in services during Advent. Ballots will be available in the narthex and the fellowship hall or use the link below. Votes are $1.00, but if you really love a hymn, you may vote five times for $5, ten times for $10, twenty times for $20, or more. Write-in votes may be cast for hymns that are not in our hymnal: i.e. “In Christ Alone”, “On Eagles Wings”, “Let there be Peace on Earth”, or “How Great Thou Art”. The proceeds will support scholarships for the St Mark’s Choir’s pilgrimage to our Anglican heritage at Ely Cathedral UK in July 2020. We will post vote totals every few weeks. The final votes will be cast at the Hymn-a-Thon on November 9, from 9:00 am to about 5:00 pm.
Everyone is invited to join members of the St Mark’s choir on November 9 to sing the first verse of all 720 hymns in the hymnal, starting with Hymn #1 at 9:00 am. Stop by during the day to sing with the choir, buy a descant for $5.00, or an additional verse for $1.00, or a bathroom break for a chorister for $1.00. Last-minute votes for favorite or least-favorite may be cast then, too.
The ten hymns that receive the most votes will be sung in services during Advent as we start the new church calendar. We will make note of the least favorite hymns, although they may also get favorite votes!
