Old Hymns Making a Comeback!

I have been really loving the resurgence of old hymns that are coming back in new music or with new choruses. There are several hymns that have been given a makeover that I hope will be a blessing to you:

O Glorious Day (Living He Loved Me) - Casting Crowns
Amazing Grace (My Chains are Gone) - Chris Tomlin
My Savior, My God - Aaron Shust
Let Us Love and Sing and Wonder - Indelible Grace
Cornerstone (The Solid Rock) - Hillsong
Crown Him (Majesty) - Chris Tomlin
All Creatures of our God and King - Sovereign Grace
O The Deep Deep Love - Sovereign Grace
Jesus Shall Reign - Enfield
Draw Me Nearer - Caedmon's Call
When I Survey (O The Wondrous Cross) - Chris Tomlin
Jesus I Am Resting Resting - Steve Green

What other old hymns do you know of that have new music, new choruses or some new twist that has brought them off the shelf and back into our churches?

We've been singing Jesus Paid it All with a chorus of O Praise the One. Here's a youtube clip of the arrangement.

They are both a large part of the hymn resurgence: http://cardiphonia.org/2012/01/17/observations-on-the-new-hymns-movement/

I usually like the old hymns with the old tunes, but I must admit that the arrangement of 'Let us Love and Sing and Wonder' was very good (apart from the unnecessary guitar break at the end). I shall listen to some more.

Love the blog. Keep up the good work!
