Lenten Hymns (in English!)

When your family gathers around your home altar for prayer before bed, it’s so beautiful to close (or open!) evening prayer with a hymn. (After all, hymns are an important part of the Divine Office, the constant prayer of the Church that our priests and consecrated religious devote their lives to ceaselessly praying.)

This Lent, I recommend that you begin singing at evening prayer if you have not begun this practice already. Here are suggestions for English hymns, one for each of the six weeks of Lent:

Other suggestions are welcome, of course! Get started learning/reviewing these selections, because Lent is almost here (only a week away from today)!
