This is completely random and has nothing to do with the blog challenge or the photo challenge ...

For some reason, I was thinking of some of my favorite hymns and I thought I'd share a couple. Actually, I don't think any of them would actually be considered hymns, but they're definitely "churchy".

I sang this one with my high school concert choir and I still LOVE it. I'd probably say it's my favorite.
(This video had the best sound quality, but it is creepy for sure. I suggest you do something else on your computer if you're going to listen. Also, I'm not sure how I feel about the trumpets. I'm a big fan of just the piano.)

So the next song was supposed to be Worthy is the Lamb, but I can't find it! I keep getting a praise song or a song from Handel's Messiah, neither of which is the version I remember (although I am a fan of Messiah). Britt, help me out.

Moving on, you can't go wrong with The Lord's Prayer. And Andrea Bocelli.

This isn't exactly a church song, but I still love it.

Oh Holy Night is another favorite. I don't really know why it's mostly played at Christmas. I listen to it year-round. Of course I love Celine singing it, but I also like Josh Groban's version. Take your pick.
In Celine's version, my favorite part is sung by the choir, so that's a bummer because it's kind of quiet.

Okay, I could spend hours clicking from one video to the next on YouTube, so I think I'll call it a night.

Also, I hope I didn't offend anyone with my last post (specifically the part about loving the GLBT community). It's just something I feel strongly about, so I was putting it out there. I'm certainly not taking it back or apologizing for it, I just hope I didn't lose any readers who might feel differently. If I did, oh well. :)
