THE results of Swanage’s favourite hymns are in – with All Things Bright And Beautiful coming out on top.

All Saints’ Church’s Revd Andrew Corke, through the pages of the Swanage & Wareham Advertiser, had asked for people to let him know their favourite hymns to sing.

He explained: “Your readers might remember that last month we were holding a special Songs of Praise service and I asked for people to let me know their favourite hymn.

“Thanks so much to everyone who contacted me. After totting up the votes of the Swanage jury I can officially report Swanage’s three favourite hymns.”

First place goes to All Things Bright And Beautiful; second place to Amazing Grace; and third place to How Great Thou Art.

Revd Corke added: “We sang all three at the Songs of Praise service and we plan to hold a similar event next year, so I might well be asking the readers of the Advertiser again for their favourite hymn.

“Thanks so much to everyone who responded.”
