The gloves are off! This week we're looking at the hymn, Fight the Good Fight.

This week we're coming away with more questions than answers as we explore the well-known favourite, I Stand Amazed in the Presence.

We're tackling an important topic this week as we dig into the hymn, The Church's One Foundation. We'll be looking into the controversies surrounding the writing of this hymn (and its tune), questioning our attitude towards the church, and reminding ourselves just how much Christ loves his precious bride. All that and more! Follow Hymnpartial on so…
 
We've covered quite a few hymns, so in our newest episode, we thought we'd dig into the history of a hymnbook. We'll be looking into the very special friendship of John Newton and William Cowper and how this led them to create one of the most influential hymnals in the English language: Olney Hymns. To this day, this hymnbook is still used and is s…
 
In this, our fiftieth episode (I know, right??), we're bringing you a William Cowper classic we can't believe we haven't talked about yet: There is a Fountain Filled with Blood.

There's so much going on at Hymnpartial HQ this week that we're taking a break just to rest and regroup. However, with football season reaching a fever pitch (see what we did there) we'd like to share with you an old classic and well-known football anthem, Abide with Me. Bizarrely, this is a song that has been widely adopted by secular culture in t…
 
This week, we're talking about a hymn that was more recently revived by the David Crowder band, but actually goes way, way back. Our hymn for the week is All Creatures of Our God and King, but we'll also be taking a look into the tumultuous, yet fascinating life and beliefs of its author, Saint Francis of Assisi. Follow Hymnpartial on social media:…

In celebration of Hymnpartial's first birthday, we thought we'd take a look back at a few of the lessons we've learned and ways we've been convicted through the last 52 weeks of podcasting. We talk about how we're constantly amazed by the lives of the human beings behind the hymns, how we're convicted by how often we don't pay attention to what we'…
 
We're continuing our joyful theme with another accidental Christmas carol! In this episode, we talk about why Joy to the World isn't an advent hymn, we have a look at how the Mormons have changed the lyrics to suit themselves, plus we will answer a question from our mailbag. The channel we mentioned in the answer to the mailbag question belongs to …
 
We decided that our next two episodes would be on a joyful theme, only to discover that by pure coincidence, both the songs are hymns which are frequently mistaken for Christmas songs. In this week's episode, we talk about big fluffy dogs, Romantic era poetry, and pre-WW1 history - although Cara is trying her hardest not to go off down a series of …
 
You asked and we're here to answer as we dig into some of our mailbag questions. There may be some encouragement, there may be some challenges, you'll just have to listen and find out! We'll be talking about songs for those who are struggling, our favourite episodes so far, and we're playing a fun game of Hymnpartial This or That. All that, plus so…
 
We've mentioned the Queen of Gospel so many times, but this week we're finally taking a look at one of Fanny Crosby's best known hymns, Blessed Assurance. We're going to talk about the incredible life of the hymnwriter herself, hear in her own words how Blessed Assurance came to be written, and we'll be reminded of the unwavering assurance that is …
 
What are you reading in your Bible at the moment? This week we'd like to remind you of the excellent hymn, How Firm A Foundation. This is no stuffy classic, it's a wonderful song that talks about the beautiful gift the Bible is, often lifting lyrics straight from Scripture itself. In a world that tries to undermine the Word of God, this is the perf…
 
And can it be that we're finally talking about one of Charles Wesley's hymns?? Why, yes it can. In this week's episode, we'll be looking into one of his greatest hits. We'll be talking about Charles Wesley's post-ordination conversion, touching on why some Christians don't like him, and, of course, discussing one of Cara's favourite hymns. Follow H…
 
We're revisiting the trinity this week as we talk about the classic trinitarian hymn, Holy Holy Holy. In this episode we learn about the short but impactful life of Reginald Heber, and discover where the wonderful themes of this song can be found in the Bible. We also touch on some of our thoughts about Mormons singing (and sometimes editing) what …
 
We have another special guest this week, though on a very different subject. In this week's episode, we're joined by Regan B. King to talk about the Bible's view on depression; the life of the hymn writer, William Cowper; and songs Christians can sing to remind themselves of the great hope we have. We also answer a mailbag question about what to do…
 
This week, we're joined by a special guest, hymn expert and PhD student, Mr D. J. Bulls. We'll be talking about the trinity, the importance of singing to the triune God, and get some really helpful insight into why some traditions shy away from addressing God in this way in their praise. Find D. J.: Instagram - @hymnstagramm Fearless4You Music - ht…
 
His Mercy is More may be a (very) recent hymn, but it's packed with good theology and edifying lyrics, all set to a memorable tune. If there's anything you want buzzing around your head all week, it's the truth that Christ's mercies are greater than our sins. *Regular episodes resume next week.* Also follow us on social media Mailing List: https://…
 
This week Cara breaks down the odd and wonderful history of 'Abide With Me'. Why is this plea for God to be with us as we face death a common soundtrack at humanist funerals, Football cups & Indian military events? Tune in this week to find out!

We're aware that we have quite a few more recent additions to the Hymnpartial family, so we thought it would be fun to introduce (or re-introduce) ourselves. The funny thing about podcasts is that you can feel like you know someone very well without really knowing much about them, so this week, we decided we'd give you a wee peek behind the mic. In…
 
We're back with another beautiful hymn about the glory of God. This time we're blending the old with the new as we learn more about All Glory Be to Christ, a wonderful rewriting of Auld Lang Syne. In this episode, we hear the hymn's story straight from the horse's mouth, Cara goes off on a rabbit trail about the use of traditional tunes in worship,…
 
What better way to perk up your day than with a hymn about the glory of God? Join us as we take a deeper look at the Horatius Bonar classic, Glory Be to God the Father. In this episode, we talk about trinitarian hymns (or the lack thereof), Revelation 5, and the God who must be glorified. All that and more! Also follow us on social media: Mailing L…
 
We've got everything from the sublime to the ridiculous as we take a look at some of the best (and worst) songs we sing about the love of God. Join us as we discuss some of the cringeworthy lyrics supplied by you, our listeners, play pop song or hymn lyric, and offer up some richer hymns that can remind us of God's incredible love. This week we als…
 
It's with great excitement that we bring to you our first ever guest - the pastor, the publisher, the secret third member of the Hymnpartial team... Daniel Funke! In this episode, Daniel explains to us why people think there are hymns in the new testament, where we can find them, and why they matter to us today. Join us as we explore what may have …
 
This week's hymn may be one most of us know, but it turns out that the stories you've heard about it may not be quite what you thought. . . As we follow the history of It is Well With My Soul - its lyrics, and its music - the body count just keeps mounting. Yet from the midst of all the tragedy rises one of the most hopeful and triumphant hymns the…
 
we're finally bringing you the song that started it all. Be Still My Soul is a beautiful hymn, full of comfort and challenge for us as believers and it's one that can be sung at the best of times and the worst of times. Join us as we move from Lutheran Pietism to Finnish nationalism to Japanese internment camps, following the tumultuous yet provide…
 
We're continuing on the theme of the sovereignty of God with a newer song, Behold Our God. There's nothing better than songs that effectively plagiarise Scripture and the conversation turns to whether we're seeing a greater hunger then ever before for songs that remind us God is more than just a warm hug when we feel down - so much more! Join us as…
 
In this episode we do a quick recap of the life of Isaac Watts, take a moment to bask in the wonder of our freedom in Christ, and speculate on whether our hymn-writer was referencing Milton or Paul (as if we'd know!). The important thing to remember as we face each of our struggles, is that God is still on his throne, he's sovereign and he's in con…
 
Our episode this week is fun and relaxed as we talk about the best (and worst) Christmas songs, play some seasonal games, and share with you some Scripture passages that have been on our minds in the lead up to this Christmas. What do YOU think are the best and worst Christmas songs? Which ones do you like so much you sing all year round? And did y…
 
This week we bring you a song that, coincidentally, is one of the finalists or our Battle of the Carols. Even after Monet reveals the complex story of O Come, All Ye Faithful, we still have no idea where it came from or who wrote it, but Cara decides she'll say it's hers since just about everybody else has claimed it as their own. Would you dare ar…
 
We're back again with our second Christmas episode. This time, we're talking about ye olde classic, Hark the Herald Angels Sing. We've got some serious saltiness about people tweaking other people's lyrics, an accidental Christmas song that's not actually about Christmas, and another one of those popular songs that maybe isn't as deep and spiritual…
 
We are very much excited here at Hymnpartial - Christmas is coming and we are so ready for it (if you can't tell)! In this week's episode, we're talking about how the story behind Silent Night could have been written by Hallmark, whether Away in a Manger is just a little bit creepy, and why on earth anyone is still singing Little Donkey. Join us as…
 
Since our very first episode on Amazing Grace has continued to be our most popular, we thought that it might be fun to do an entire episode on the life of its author, John Newton. With all the social justice stuff and with Black Lives Matter becoming such a household name this year, the conversation felt all the more pertinent. You see, John Newton…
 
Don't worry, we're not abandoning our reformed roots and claiming to be having audible chats with Jesus, we're just looking at a rather wonderful hymn, I Heard the Voice of Jesus Say. This week, we're introduced to Horatius Bonar, Monet takes us on a whistle-stop tour of the 1843 schism in the Church of Scotland, and we find ourselves encouraged by…
 
Whip out your passports, we're off on a journey around the world this week as we trace the development of the song we now know as How Great Thou Art. From the sea storms of Sweden to the sweeping beauty of the Carpathian mountains, to the post-war refugee camps of Sussex, this popular hymn journeyed across four languages over fifty years before it …
 
After a brief, but refreshing break, we're back this week with a song all about the gloriousness of God. Praise to the Lord, the Almighty is one of the best known hymns in our hymn books, but did you know it was originally German? Brace yourself, this episode has us puzzling over accusations of 'muscular Christianity' (yeah, we're not sure either),…
