Hymn-writing and the Christian Narrative

On hymns and song-writing — I love this post by Sarah Sanchez over at Fernando Ortega’s blog.

“I am drawn to the specificity of [Come Down, O Love Divine]. It’s about something. It’s about a specific event in the Christian narrative. The humble stance, the plaintive tone; it’s a perfect hymn about God pouring out his Holy Spirit on a contrite heart that has found redemption through Jesus Christ.”
