Ideas for use
Sometimes, when a hymn or tune is especially familiar, we can sing it through without much attention to the meaning of the words. One way of refreshing our feeling for a hymn is to read or sing verses spearately, interspersed with other readings or prayers. The verses of "Fight the good fight" is a hymn that lends itself to this kind of use:
Either sing each verse as a response to spoken prayer or use each verse as a stimulus / springboard for silent reflection or further spoken prayers.
