Do you know the stories behind your favorite hymns?
Whether it’s Rock of Ages, Amazing Grace, or Just As I Am, each hymn has a fascinating story behind it. And it’s often once you know these stories that the lyrics and melody take on a whole new meaning. That’s what Robert J. Morgan helps accomplish in this new episode of the Great Stories Podcast.
Robert J. Morgan pastored in Nashville, Tennessee, for 40 years and has written popular books, including Red Sea Rules and Then Sings My Soul — the latter of which is the basis for this interview. This episode covers many of the most significant hymns of the church, the story behind how they were written, and the impact they continue to have in our hearts today.
