The Greatest Hymn Bracket Challenge, v. 2.0

We're back! And this year, we've picked another 62 great hymns from our tradition, plus another 16 that were written in during the sign-up process, to create a thrilling 10-week bracket challenge that will crown another 'greatest' hymn alongside last year's winner, Be Thou My Vision.

You'll see below all the results from the past week, in reverse order (the most recent results are listed first). Results are usually posted by Sunday morning, and the new survey goes out on Sunday afternoon.

This week's survey can be found on Google Forms. If for any reason that link doesn't work, the latest survey link is always available on the Hymn Challenge Facebook page.

Everybody, anywhere, of any church or tradition is welcome to take part! If you want to be put on our mailing list, just email Fr. Andrew, or write to
