Wikipedia

  1. hymns

    A hymn is a type of song, and partially synonymous with devotional song, specifically written for the purpose of adoration or prayer, and typically addressed to a deity or deities, or to a prominent figure or personification. The word hymn derives from Greek ὕμνος (hymnos), which means "a song of praise". A writer of hymns is known as a hymnist. The singing or composition of hymns is called hymnody. Collections of hymns are known as hymnals or hymn books. Hymns may or may not include instrumental accompaniment. Although most familiar to speakers of English in the context of Christianity, hymns are also a fixture of other world religions, especially on the Indian subcontinent (stotras). Hymns also survive from antiquity, especially from Egyptian and Greek cultures. Some of the oldest surviving examples of notated music are hymns with Greek texts.

  1. Hymns

    Hymns is Godflesh's sixth studio album. It was released on October 23, 2001, on Music for Nations and is their final album to date. The album marks the debut of drummer Ted Parsons, and is the first Godflesh album with a drummer recorded live in the studio. It was also the band's first album to be recorded in a professional studio. Parsons later revealed that the band recorded in a professional studio due to label pressure, and described the decision as "a mistake". The final song on the album, "Jesu", became the name of Broadrick's next project after he dissolved Godflesh on April 10, 2002.

    When we remember that with those 272 souls we received the same sacraments; read the same Scriptures; said the same prayers; sang the same hymns; and praised the same God, how did we, the Society of Jesus, fail to see us all as one body in Christ? We betrayed the very name of Jesus for whom our society is named.
