I wasn't quite sure on where to place this; it is indeed a theological topic, so I thought it best to place it here. 
 
As the topic alludes to, this is a discussion about our favorite religious hymns; although, a specific song need not be religious to give inspiration. So, if there is a certain song that inspires you and it is secular, by all means share.
 
For me, a Catholic of the Latin rite, I simply love Veni Creator Spiritus. It lifts me to a place where I can more easily contemplate and reflect. It is usually sung in the Gregorian chant. Here are a few offerings:
 
 
It is sung in the Pentecost liturgy, but it is also used in very important events such as the opening prayer for Church councils; it is also usually present at the start of important things to be done. It has been widely used since the 10th century on; and I believe it is one of the few -- if not the only -- liturgical hymns to be kept within some Protestant denominations.
 
Anyhow, what is your favorite religious, liturgical, or just plain inspirational song?
 
If you don't have one, I'd still be interested in hearing at least what you think about Veni Creator Spiritus. I've always been interested in hearing from those that aren't religious about how they feel about religious hymns or songs.Smile

I love it, LouisFerdinand, but I'm unfamiliar with it. Is there any chance you could give me the history behind it? Though my voice is terrible, I do love learning about texts. Wink
