hymn texts
« on: July 26, 2020, 07:37:04 AM »
Do you ever find that hymn texts are a bit difficult to understand? I am now practicing singing and playing Nearer my God to Thee. It took some time for me before I understood that it is a text telling the story of St Jacob. This I say as a man who read a little bit about St Jacob. A friend told me that what the texts are all about is kind of obvious but I am not too sure.
