On the thread "Praise Songs for Easter", some of the suggestions made seem to be what I would call "hymns", ("The Old Rugged Cross", "Blessed Redeemer" - assuming it is the one that continues: "Jesus is mine, Oh, what a foretaste of glory divine!" - "He Arose!" - again making an assumption, that this is the one which starts: "Low in the Grace He Lay, Jesus my Saviour" - "Power in the Blood", "Fairest Lord Jesus" - Ruler of all nature, Son of God and Son of man?? - "In Christ alone" - my hope is found??? So my question is this: What is the difference (if there is one) between a praise song and a hymn?
