New every morning is your love, great God of light, and all day long you are working for good in the world. Stir up in us desire to serve you, to live peacefully with our neighbors and all your creation, and to devote each day to your Son, our Savior Jesus Christ. Amen.

Unrevealed Until Its Season

A Lenten Journey with Hymns

James C. Howell • October 2021

BUY Print $14.99

Author James Howell believes in the power of song to teach spiritual truths. "Hymns embed faith into the marrow of the soul," he writes. In Unrevealed Until Its Season, Howell takes readers on a 40-day journey through popular songs of the church.

Reflecting on well-loved hymn phrases, Howell helps readers discover who God is and what following Jesus means. A great Lenten devotional guide for individuals, small groups, and church choirs, this book is an invaluable resource—and perfect gift—for musicians as they prepare for worship, and for ministers as they preach and lead worship.

The weekly themes include Praising God, Hymns About Jesus, Hymns of Forgiveness, Hymns of Vision, Hymns of Beauty, Hymns of Holy Week, and Hymns of Easter. Howell ponders phrases from hymns old and new, such as "Be Thou My Vision," "Hymn of Promise," "All Creatures of Our God and King," "For Everyone Born," "Come, Thou Fount of Every Blessing," "Lift High the Cross," and "When I Survey the Wondrous Cross."


James C. Howell is senior pastor, Myers Park United Methodist Church, Charlotte, NC. He is the author of 20 books. Howell holds a PhD and DMin from Duke Divinity School and a BA from the University of South Carolina. He enjoys reading, biking, and hiking in his spare time. He and his wife, Lisa, a photographer and community activist, have three grown children.
