Here you’ll find the Fairview Hymn of the Month.

Each month we will choose a new hymn. It will be announced in the Tuesday newsletter. You are encouraged to learn the words and the tune of the hymn by heart. This is especially helpful for children. When children learn the Hymn of the Month by heart they will be able to fully participate in worship while singing. There is great power and comfort when we join our hearts and minds to focus on the same words and tune for a sustained amount of time.

We will sing the Fairview Hymn of the Month during the last Sunday of the Month.

You can use the Hymn of the Month in a variety of ways: listen to it and sing along in the morning during your regular devotion. Listen and sing before each meal. Start an evening wind-down routine: before bed as a family or as an individual light a candle, read a psalm, and sing the Fairview Hymn of the Month.

November Hymn of the Month: “This is a Day of New Beginnings”

This Is a Day of New Beginnings
Words: Brian Wren
Music: Carlton R. Young

This is a day of new beginnings,
Time to remember and move on,
Time to believe what love is bringing,
Laying to rest the pain that’s gone.

For by the life and death of Jesus,
God’s mighty Spirit, now as then,
Can make for us a world of difference,
As faith and hope are born again.

Then let us, with the Spirit’s daring,
Step from the past and leave behind
Our disappointment, guilt and grieving,
Seeking new paths, and sure to find.

Christ is alive, and goes before us,
To show and share what love can do.
This is a day of new beginnings;
Our God is making all things new.

In faith we’ll gather round the table,
To taste and share what love can do.
This is a day of new beginnings;
Our God is making all things new.
