Everything Hymnal

This is the beginning of the newly-resucitated Everything Hymnal. The nodes listed here represent a thorough collation of the hymns found on the Everything2 website. If you are aware of any hymn on the site and not listed here, please send me a message indicating its location. The present list is limited to Christian hymnody, but it is hoped and anticipated that additional write-ups for other faiths with a tradition of hymn-singing will appear beneath this, or elsewhere. Wuukiee has collected a good set of Pagan/Wiccan chants at Ritual Chants, and nine9 noded some Vaishnava Songs. Both come highly recommended.

No attempt to promote the philosophical or religious content of these works is to be inferred from their inclusion here. This is intended to be an informative collection of hymns from all ages.
