So many wonderful hymns are full of truth from the Scriptures! As you enjoy singing hymns with your children, your children will begin to lay up these truths in their hearts. And these hymns can remain with them, ready in their hearts to one day be sung with the next generation.

Hymns comfort, encourage, lift up our eyes to Jesus and renew our spirits. Let’s keep singing hymns!!

Hymn History 

Eliza Hewitt (1851 – 1920) is the author of the hymn “Singing I Go”. She also wrote other beautiful lyrics in the songs “When We All Get to Heaven” and “There is Sunshine in My Soul Today”.

She had a heart to help others but during a time of injury she could not be actively involved in service. During this season she grew closer to the Lord in her relationship with Him. She also began writing children’s poems. Later music was added to her poems to create hymns. Eliza Hewitt enjoyed having the hymn writer Fanny Crosby as a friend.

Eliza’s choice to rejoice and her heart for others comes out in this beautiful hymn!

After your children have completed the Hymn Discussion and Drawing Page it can be placed in their individual Bible Time Binders for future reference and enjoyment. This is where the hymn lyrics can also be kept.
