The Greatest Hymns On YouTube

Evangelist and hymn writer Matthew Bassford recently compiled a list of “The 50 Greatest Hymns of All Time.” After sharing it on Facebook and hearing feedback from others, he revised the list slightly, adding four songs and removing four of his original picks.

His legwork inspired us to search YouTube to see if we could find a cappella recordings of all 54 hymns from the two lists combined. We found them all except “For the Beauty of the Earth.” Now you can listen to them all in one place.

Several of these recordings are audio only, with album covers, slideshows, sheet music or lyrics as visuals. The videos in the list include some that are professionally choreographed. Other videos feature studio remixes with one person singing all the parts, informal performances in various locations and congregational singing.

Abide with Me

All Hail the Power of Jesus’ Name

All People That on Earth Do Dwell

Amazing Grace

Be Still, My Soul

Be with Me, Lord

Footprints of Jesus

Give Me the Bible

Great Is Thy Faithfulness

Hallelujah! Praise Jehovah!

Hallelujah! What a Savior

He Hideth My Soul

Higher Ground

How Deep the Father’s Love

How Firm a Foundation

I Am Thine, O Lord

I Need Thee Every Hour

In Christ Alone

In the Hour of Trial

It Is Well with My Soul

Jesus, Draw Me Ever Nearer

Jesus Loves Me!

Just As I Am

Lord, We Come Before Thee Now

My Jesus, I Love Thee

Nearer, My God, to Thee

Nearer, Still Nearer

O Thou Fount of Every Blessing

O Worship the King

On Zion’s Glorious Summit

Only in Thee

Our God, He Is Alive

Purer in Heart, O God

Rock of Ages

Something for Thee

Stand Up, Stand Up for Jesus

Sun of My Soul

Sweet By and By

Sweet Hour of Prayer!

Take Time to Be Holy

Teach Me Thy Way

The Battle Belongs to the Lord

The Last Mile of the Way

The Solid Rock

There Is a Habitation

This World Is Not My Home

Though Your Sins Be as Scarlet

‘Tis Midnight, and on Olive’s Brow

Trust and Obey

Victory in Jesus

We Saw Thee Not

When I Survey the Wondrous Cross

Why Did My Savior Come to Earth?
