 Hymnology: What is a hymn?
A Christian hymn is a lyric poem, reverently and devotionally conceived, which is designed to be sung and which expresses the worshipper's attitude toward God, or God's purposes in human life.
It was the poet, Alfred Lord Tennyson who said, “A good hymn is the most difficult thing in the world to write.” This statement highlights the nature of the hymn as one of the most rigorously limited types of literature.
Therefore, in the final analysis, the hymn represents a unique form of literary art, sustaining a relationship to poetry somewhat akin to that of prayer to prose.

In Winter Hymn Country Hymn Secret Hymn, Do Make Say Think have presented us with their best work yet, a varied and unpredictable album capable of imparting the chill of the winter and the warmth of celebratory joy to you without ever presenting you with a human voice.
The way the band breaks up the action makes the album equally digestible as a whole or in three discreet parts taken separately, which is especially nice when you're short on time to just sit and listen to the whole thing.
