Hymns

Hymns were a key part of Primitive Methodism.  They expressed the faith - especially important at a time when not everyone could read -  and everyone could join in, so you shared the joy and emotion with others.

Primitive Methodist hymns were often rhythmic which was very helpful in marches through the street to a camp meeting.
