*NEW* Your LDS Hymns Stream
Each day we are to aspire to be better. Is there something that can gently remind us throughout our day to be more Christlike? “Inspiring music may fill the soul with heavenly thoughts, move one to righteous action, or speak peace to the soul." President Ezra Taft Benson, Ensign, Nov. 1974, 67. In response to that mandate, yourLDSradio.com offers you their newest stream, LDS Hymns.
Hymn lyrics are a sacred testament of our deepest beliefs sung in the universal and beautiful language of music. Who hasn’t felt tingling in their soul from the majesty of “All Creatures of Our God and King,” or a strong edifying conviction from “I Know That My Redeemer Lives?” Hymns become personal as we are washed with the Spirit in an answer to prayer or we are keenly aware that He knows the desires of our hearts.
We are encouraged to use hymns in our home because of their powerful influence and blessing. As we familiarize ourselves with the Hymns we are better able to withstand temptations of the adversary. We are instructed to partake of their nourishment; memorize, ponder, recite and sing the songs of the righteous. The world is a virtual vacuum of righteousness. One of its most powerful tools is the double edged sword of technology. The LDS Hymns stream is an invitation to the Spirit.
From the “First Presidency Preface” of our Hymn book, “Music has boundless powers for moving families toward greater spirituality and devotion to the gospel…Sing them on the Sabbath, in home evening, during scripture study, at prayer time. Sing as you work, as you play, and as you travel together. Sing hymns as lullabies to build faith and testimony in your young ones.”
yourLDSradio.com’s uplifting LDS Hymns stream makes it possible to listen anytime and anywhere through your computer and mobile devices. If you would like to learn more about your listening options, please read here.

King Benjamin’s dying wish was to “join the choirs above in singing the praises of a just God.” After the last supper, to prepare for his humble ascension up the Mount of Olives, the Lord, “…sung an hymn.” Can we deny the power of reverent music? As we strive to edify our lives and those around us, may we turn to our hymns, a resource which has been encouraged to take a prominent place in our homes and personal lives.
