Several years ago, we recorded our revised set of Christmas hymns and selected a hymn tune that spoke to us at the moment. We picked “Let All Creation Rejoice” by Johann Pachelbel because we felt it would be the one of all the hymns. Since then, weve continued to work on the complete set of Christmas hymns. This new release, however, has that same tune and a few changes that we consider to be really significant. We think it will do well with the current population of believers that is looking for a renewed sense of faith in Christ at Christmas time.
Like others of its kind, this song of the early 19th century uses instrumental accompaniment to emphasize the message of the Bible on creation. God has created a magnificent world and wants to show it to us for praise and worship. That world becomes more beautiful, more diverse, and more intricate with every new discovery. In that world, we live a life of peace and compassion. But now, its our job to share the abundant beauty with the rest of creation and to show it off to the world. The mechanics of the hymn require attention in this instrumental setting. As a result, the soloist is given more space and the performance looks right to this pensive song. The chorus of the hymn has a beautiful melody that offers a strong contrast to the dramatic movement of the instrumental settings. It is a clear example of the hymns skill in placing the text to fit the psalms structure.
As we gain a glimpse of the glory to be unveiled on that glorious day when Christ’s Bride returns to her Beloved the Unsearchable, the glories of which are now for her waiting, so for each of us, the unfolding mystery of the character and power of the Crucified is our own life-transforming window on eternity. As we listen to the beautiful hymns in this collection, the message that each hymn sends is this: Come now, enter into the high and holy place of God himself. Go and see the master, the one whom no one has seen and yet whom all have seen, whose hands and feet are marked by the nails of the cross. Come and sit down with him to share the feast of his greatness, to celebrate his love and accept his gift of grace. To face him now, as you and I do here and now, is to face our own dignity and ultimate destiny. For what is it that we seek to offer God? Indeed, it is ourselves! To be his bride, we have to be his, and the way to be his is the way of Jesus. In Christ, we are not first, we are last. In Christ, we are valued, we are loved, we are wanted, we are remembered. To be in Christ is to be made new, made holy, made complete, made immortal.
Thriving in the march of evolution, our hymns had long outgrown their simple but useful origins. As our hymnological heritage grew, the language and melody (and even the tunes) of hymns were subject to the corrosive influence of contemporary culture, especially of the wider culture of the postwar era. To the extent that the natural evolution of language and musical expression has now reached its final stages, we are left with two choices, either to assert our independence and glory in the only words we can find with our sights set on eternity, or to surrender to the inevitable and join the rest of the world, totally adopting its language and form. If we choose the latter, we are in danger of only borrowing the language and style of the world, but not the truth and essence of Christianity. The solution, as we have shown, is to affirm our biblical heritage by celebrating our hymnal. A hymnal that is not at the mercy of the world or the loss of its unique authenticity, but that upholds and expresses, to the best of our ability, the truths of the Bible, is a Bible in itself.
Although the title of this booklet suggests they were written for funerals, we know of no more appropriate hymn to sing or to give as a memorial at the homecoming of a departed loved one. At the same time, the songs are not to be sung only at funerals. From the words of the text, they would be appropriate at other times of celebration or somber lament. They are some of the best all-purpose hymns in English.
