It's a tie between "O For a Thousand Tongues" and "And Can It Be"
What UCM said.
I'll probably request 'And Can It Be' and 'Love Divine' for my funeral, but I do love 'Glory be to God on high' and it seems appropriate to say so on Christmas eve:'See the eternal Son of GodA mortal son of manDwelling in an earthly clodWhom heaven cannot contain!Stand amazed, ye heavens, at this!See the Lord of earth and skies;Humbled to the dust he is.And in a manger lies!'Fantastic theology but we don't have to swallow the simplistic drivel that qualifies a person as 'sound' these days.
Hark the Herald Angels SingMerry Christmas John
These are all great, but I must put in a vote for "Come, O Thou Traveler Unknown."
And Can It Be
All of the above, plus "Come, Sinners, to the Gospel Feast."
I used Hark! The Herald Angels Sing as my altar call hymn last Sunday. It worked well. Ol' Charles can't help but work atonement into everything.
