CANNON BEACH - "How Great Thou Art" will be the featured hymn at a Community Hymn Sing for the North Coast to be held at 7 p.m. Sunday at the Cannon Beach Community Presbyterian Church, located at the corner of Hemlock and Washington streets. The hymn, based upon a Swedish poem, will be sung, and its story will be told.
In 2001, the hymn was ranked second (after "Amazing Grace") on a list of the favorite hymns of all time in a survey by Today's Christian magazine. It also has been the most requested hymn in previous community hymn sings in Cannon Beach.
Most of the hymn sing selections are chosen by those who attend. Hymnals are provided and the songs are accompanied by organ, piano and trumpet. Light refreshments will be served after the singing.
