It’s been more than a decade since Chris Rice gave us Peace Like A River: The Hymns Project, and fans have been clamoring for more ever since. The wait is finally over. Untitled Hymn: A Collection Of Hymns doesn’t just pick up where that first project left off, it’s a brand new celebration of the sound theology and sweet poetry of these classic songs of faith.

 Old friends like “Leaning On the Everlasting Arms” and “Fairest Lord Jesus” are gently reimagined while staying true to the original tunes we fondly remember. The spare guitar on “What a Friend We Have in Jesus” gives the classic hymn a rough-hewn, Americana feel, while Rice’s piano-driven take on “When I Survey the Wondrous Cross” is nothing short of a church service. A jangly version of “This Is My Father’s World” conjures up early Rice releases, and a children’s choir adds extra heart to “Hallelujah, What a Savior.”

 In all, a dozen well-loved classics are given new life, including Rice’s own “Untitled Hymn (Come to Jesus).” Peace Like a River has been streamed nearly 24 million times since its 2007 release. This powerful new collection promises to build on that success.
