{A&E} Poll: The 'Favoritest' Hymn of All--Round 1

Last Sunday my ward had a special music sacrament meeting. Five people were asked to choose their favorite hymn, speak about it, and then the congregation sang it. I loved hearing their testimonies of these hymns, and thought it was neat to see the variety of favorite hymns.

All of the hymns are sacred and it's hard to pick a favorite, but I think everyone tends to have a special song they are drawn to. I'm interested to know if certain hymns are more popular than others, and which is the most-liked hymn in the book. That's why LDS Living is hosting the first-ever Favoritest Hymn of All poll!

Below are eight categories of hymns. Vote for the one you like most within each category. Next week in Round 2, we'll take the winners from each category and pit two against each other and narrow it down to the final four (think NCAA bracket-style). And then in Round 3, you will vote for for one out of the remaining four.

NOTE: If you feel like your favoritest hymn of all has been left out, leave a comment below. If we get enough write-ins for a particular hymn, we'll add it to the list.
