Hymns for 3rd May - recorded by Mel, St. Paul's Church Organist
Our organist, Mel, is recording hymns week by week on her organ at home. She's posting videos of them, complete with the hymn words, on her YouTube channel. This includes the 4 hymns that she would have played at our 9am service this Sunday (3rd May) if church hadn't been closed for the duration of the pandemic lockdown. If you'd like to listen to them and maybe also sing them, you can find them on Youtube using the links below. A Church Near You has now got the ability to include proper links to Youtube videos in pages like this one. So you should be able to go to each hymn by clicking on its link below.

Mel has also added an extra hymn this week. About it, she writes:
"I have added an extra hymn that has fallen out of many hymn books, but survives in the URC/Presbyterian Church Hymnary III. It is now known mostly in the choir arrangement by Holst. However, it has good words for the present time and a fine tune (Old 125th) from the 1551 Geneva Psalter." It is - Turn back, O man - https://youtu.be/7knPpu2oABw
