Some of them are wonderful!
We’ll take original hymns by protestants, or hymns written by protestants from a Catholic inspiration. We’ll also take mistakes - but please make the correction kindly
Some may be by authors, or be submitted by posters, who would reject the term “protestant”. I apologise if the term offends, but it is getting a bit tricky to write for every sensibility - and I would like to give credit to the hymn anyway!
Here are some of my favourites -
*]Alleluliah, Sing to Jesus William Chatterton Dix
*]On Jordan’s Bank the Baptist Cry Charles Coffin
*]Come Down O Love Divine. From a poem by St Catherine of Sienna, but the familiar translation is by Rev. Richard F. Littledale, and the music by is Vaughan-Williams. I’ve rarely heard it in a Catholic Church
*]Love Divine, All Loves Excelling Charle’s Wesley
*]When I Survey The Wondrous Cross Isaac Watts
*]Dear Lord and Father of Mankind John Wittier
This list very much reflects my origins in High-Church Anglicanism, but I hope to get nominations for hymns from a variety of protestant backgrounds.
