There are soooo many great hymns.

The first that comes to my mind is Abide With Me, especially when play on the strings.

I need Thy presence every passing hour;
What but Thy grace can foil the tempter’s pow’r?

So true.

It Is Finished is also right up there.

Thank-you!

Here's another, by Charitie Lees Bancroft:

.....................

Before the throne of God above
I have a strong and perfect plea,
A great High Priest whose name is Love,
Who ever lives and pleads for me.
My name is graven on his hands,
My name is written on his heart;
I know that while in heav'n he stands
No tongue can bid me thence depart,
No tongue can bid me thence depart.

2 When Satan tempts me to despair
And tells me of the guilt within,
Upward I look and see him there
Who made an end of all my sin.
Because the sinless Savior died,
My sinful soul is counted free;
For God the Just is satisfied
To look on him and pardon me,
To look on him and pardon me.

3 Behold him there! The risen Lamb,
My perfect, spotless righteousness;
The great unchangeable "I AM,"
The King of glory and of grace!
One with himself I cannot die,
My soul is purchased by his blood;
My life is hid with Christ on high,
With Christ, my Savior and my God,
With Christ, my Savior and my God.

I have many favorite hymns...some from my days in churches outside of the Baptist realm from when I was a young child and our family attended a small OLD Methodist church that preached God's Word and didn't go along with the mainline Methodist churches of the time. Being of Irish descent, one of the favorites I had as a child was named "Be Thou My Vision." It was one of my great Uncle John's, who was a Methodist pastor at that time. We sang this in many of the IFB churches my wife and I attended after we first got married, and it's pretty much disappeared from view these days with the advent of CCM and Country and Southern Gospel into our churches of today. There are many more I could name, but one in particular is "It Is Well With My Soul." Shortly after I was saved that hymn was one of the respites during the many storms the Lord allowed my wife and I to go through!

Thanks, @BrotherTony!

Hymns can indeed encourage; especially if the content has good, Biblical content!

Day By Day
(Words: Karolina W. Sandell-Berg; Music: Oskar Ahnfelt.) 

Day by day, and with each passing moment,
Strength I find, to meet my trials here;
Trusting in my Father’s wise bestowment,
I’ve no cause for worry or for fear.
He Whose heart is kind beyond all measure
Gives unto each day what He deems best—
Lovingly, its part of pain and pleasure,
Mingling toil with peace and rest.

Every day, the Lord Himself is near me
With a special mercy for each hour;
All my cares He fain would bear, and cheer me,
He Whose Name is Counselor and Power;
The protection of His child and treasure
Is a charge that on Himself He laid;
“As thy days, thy strength shall be in measure,”
This the pledge to me He made.

Help me then in every tribulation
So to trust Thy promises, O Lord,
That I lose not faith’s sweet consolation
Offered me within Thy holy Word.
Help me, Lord, when toil and trouble meeting,
Ever to take, as from a father’s hand,
One by one, the days, the moments fleeting,
Till I reach the promised land.

The Lord used this hymn tremendously to comfort me in the days leading up to my Mom’s passing, while she was in and out of a coma. I had Ecclesiastes 3:11 going through my mind over and over one day to the tune of this hymn, and with prayer, this song was the end result: http://songs-in-the-night.blogspot.com/2006/07/in-his-time.html
