The Top Ten List of Encouraging Hymns for the New Year

2024 is now well underway.

It’s been a rough start to the new year for me personally. If you’re in that boat as well then I hope these ten hymns bring you comfort and encouragement.

“Let tomorrow be what it may. Our God is the God of tomorrow.” Charles Spurgeon

10. He Leadeth Me

Lyrics: “He leadeth me, O blessed thought! O words with heavenly comfort fraught! Whate’er I do, where’er I be, still ‘tis God’s hand that leadeth me.”

9. My Faith Looks Up to Thee

Lyrics: “May Thy rich grace impart strength to my fainting heart, my zeal inspire; as Thou hast died for me, O may my love to Thee pure, warm, and changeless be, a living fire.”

8. My Shepherd Will Supply My Need

Lyrics: “The sure provisions of my God attend me all my days; O may Thy house be mine abode, and all my work be praise! There would I find a settled rest, while others go and come; no more a stranger, nor a guest, but like a child at home.”

7. Savior, Like a Shepherd Lead Us

Lyrics: “We are Thine, do Thou befriend us, be the Guardian of our way; keep Thy flock, from sin defend us, seek us when we go astray: blessed Jesus, blessed Jesus, hear, O hear us when we pray.”

6. I Surrender All

Lyrics: “All to Jesus I surrender, all to Him I freely give; I will ever love and trust Him, in His presence daily live. I surrender all, I surrender all; all to Thee, my blessed Savior, I surrender all.”

5. He Will Hold Me Fast

Lyrics: “Those He saves are His delight, Christ will hold me fast; precious in His holy sight, He will hold me fast. He’ll not let my soul be lost; His promises shall last; bought by Him at such a cost, He will hold me fast.”

4. How Firm a Foundation

Lyrics: “How firm a foundation, ye saints of the Lord, is laid for your faith in His excellent word! What more can He say than to you He hath said – to you who for refuge to Jesus hath fled?”

3. Be Thou My Vision

Lyrics: “Be Thou my vision, O Lord of my heart; naught be all else to me, save that Thou art; Thou by best thought by day or by night, waking or sleeping, Thy presence my light.”

2. Jesus, I Am Resting, Resting

Lyrics: “Simply trusting Thee, Lord Jesus, I behold Thee as Thou art, and Thy love so pure, so changeless, satisfies my heart, satisfies its deepest longings, meets supplies, its every need, compasseth me round with blessings, Thine is love indeed.”

1. Great Is Thy Faithfulness

Lyrics: “Pardon for sin and a peace that endureth, Thine own dear presence to cheer and to guide; strength for today and bright hope for tomorrow, blessings all mine, with ten thousand beside! Great is Thy faithfulness, great is Thy faithfulness! Morning by morning new mercies I see; all I have needed Thy hand hath provided – great is Thy faithfulness, Lord, unto me.”
