"Hymn of The Ages" by Maverick City Music

Maverick City Music, a multicultural worship thinktank in Atlanta, continues to produce good songs. This one is a beautiful lyrical compilation of hymns into one sing-able and congregational song with a touch of black gospel. How many hymn references can you find in the lyrics below? I found eight or nine.


Precious Lord Jesus

Treasure of mine

Oh, what a privilege

To be Your delight


Morning by morning

New glories I see

Oh, what a wonder

You are to me


All of the promises, all of the praise

All of Your people have sung through the ages

No matter the season the song is the same

Great is Your faithfulness, great is Your name

Great is Your faithfulness, great is Your name


God of our fathers

God of our peace

God the Redeemer

Of our history


High King of Heaven

My victory won

Still be my vision

Still be my sun


All of the promises, all of the praise

All of Your people have sung through the ages

No matter the season the song is the same

Great is Your faithfulness, great is Your name


Blessed assurance

Oh, what a grace

I’m prone to wander

But You’re prone to chase


This is my story

It’s the song that I’ll raise

I’ll sing of Your goodness

All of my days
