The Today programme has been doing a poll for listeners to vote for their favourite and least favourite hymns. The results are:
1. Dear Lord and Father of mankind
2. Guide me O thou great Redeemer
3. Be thou my vision
1. Shine Jesus shine
2. All things bright and beautiful
3. Lord of the dance
I guess it probably reflects the listeners to the Today programme more than anything. I mean, how many young people listen to Radio 4 at 7am on a Sunday morning. But my least favourites are certainly well reflected.
So what are your favourites?
And what makes you cringe?
