Old Testament poetry

The “praise of God”(Augustine’s definition of a hymn)did not begin with the New Testament. New Testament song developed naturally from a large variety of Old Testament patterns. Much of the Old Testament is in poetic form: Song of Solomon, Ecclesiastes, Proverbs, Job, and of course, the book of Psalms.

Psalms was the hymn book of the Old Testament. There are psalms of lament, psalms of praise and thanksgiving, psalms of instruction, psalms of ascent (sung as pilgrims approached Jerusalem and went ‘up’ to the Temple), just to name a few.

Praise of God

in the New Testament

The New Testament contains excerpts from creeds, prayers, doxologies, and benedictions. St. Paul refers to psalms, hymns, and spiritual songs in Col. 3:16.

The most widely known and recognized examples of New Testament hymns are the three great lyric portions connected to the account of Christ’s nativity in the Gospel according to St. Luke: the Magnificat, the Benedictus, and the Nunc Dimittis. One can also mention the Gloria in Excelsis, the Beatitudes of our Lord from His Sermon on the Mount, and the Dignus es: the songs of praise to the Lamb from the book of Revelation.

Greek hymnody

“Who does not know about…all the psalms and hymns that were written by faithful Christians from the beginning, which sing of the Christ as the Word of God and treat him as God?”

Eusebius, 4th century Church historian quoting Hippolytus of Rome (c. 170-236)

“…on a stated day they (the Christians) were accustomed to gather before daybreak and to sing responsively a song to Christ as to a God.” Pliny, governor of Bythinia, written in the early 2nd century to Emperor Trajan

Latin hymnody

Latin hymnody began to flourish in the 4th century as the Greek language began to decline in the West and the liturgy became Latinized. Latin hymnody was also a response to heresy. Hymnody became a very important teaching tool to counteract such false teaching and to rightly teach the truths of the Word of God.

Connectedto the Lutheran Reformation

The Reformation era


Of all the contributions of the Lutheran Reformation,

perhaps the greatest is Luther’s restoration of singing to the laypeople, so much so that the Lutheran Church is often called the “singing church” to this very day.

Luther viewed hymnody as liturgical song. Hymns were not merely opportunities for people to sing during the liturgy, but a way in which they could sing theliturgy. Many hymns of the early Reformation show the interest that Luther and the other Reformers had in providing liturgical hymnody for the people. Many other hymns of this era boldly speak of the truths of salvation by God’s grace through faith in Christ alone.

The Thirty Years’ War


During the 17th century, Lutheran hymnody took a turn toward a closer relationship to real life situations, due in part to the ravages of the Thirty Years’ War. The poetry was metrically more regular and smoother and the theological content “warmer.”

Paul Gerhardt writes during these troubled times, expertly combining doctrinal content with a most fervent faith, often expressed introspectively. His hymns remain among the most popular in Lutheran hymnals to this day.

Hymns of Pietism

The subjective tendency of the late 17th century gradually developed into a movement called “Pietism,” a reaction against formalism and “dead orthodoxy” of the time. The more subjective, emotional, and sentimental hymns of Pietism were not suited to the sturdy chorale tunes of earlier days. Waltz-like triple meters became common and the more rhythmic chorale tunes were evened out (isorhythmic). Pietism’s lack of intellectual strength ushered in a movement known as Rationalism or the Enlightenment which shook the foundations of the Christian faith. Hymns were revised to suit the intellectual demands of the time, causing great harm.
