In her latest “Hymn Sing with Sarah” episode, Sarah leads Erin, Bri, and Rachel in a wide-ranging, occasionally rhapsodic discussion of “modern” (AKA post-Enlightenment) Communion hymns.
Beginning at 1715 and continuing through the present, this Hymn Sing episode covers the stories behind Eucharistic hymns including “Lord Jesus Christ, We Humbly Pray,” “Eat This Bread,” “O Gracious Lord, I Firmly Am Believing,” and more.
Special attention is paid to fan-favorite “Sent Forth by God’s Blessing,” Omer Westendorf’s beloved contribution to the groundbreaking post-Vatican-II hymnal People’s Mass Book.
To learn more about these and other hymns in Lutheran Service Book, check out CPH’s two-volume set Lutheran Service Book: Companion to the Hymns.
