Modern Hymns of Keith Getty

I was blessed this week by the ministry of Keith and Kristyn Getty as guests on the Southeastern campus. Keith is a prolific modern hymn-writer and Kristyn is a truly gifted singer. Some of their most familiar songs are: In Christ Alone, The Power of the Cross, and Speak, O Lord. I thank God for this couple and His blessing on their ministry.

Keith says there are two reasons he writes modern hymns. “First, it’s to help teach the faith. What we sing affects how we think, how we feel and ultimately how we live, so it’s so important that we sing the whole scope of truth the Bible has given us. The second reason is to try and create a more timeless musical style that every generation can sing, a style that relates to the past and the future.”
