Kristyn Getty: Why we sing hymns with our children

A few years ago, when our eldest daughter Eliza was four, we visited a Christian school on the East Coast of the US. In the auditorium, the students, ranging in age from four to 16, gathered to perform a medley of hymns to showcase the songs they had been taught to help them learn the great doctrines of the Christian faith. To finish, they invited the rest of the kids in the auditorium, including our Eliza, to join them on the stage to sing In Christ Alone.
