216. Did Christ Sing Any Hymns?

While there is no record of such a thing m Scripture, or anywhere else, it does not seem improbable. See the passage in Matt. 26130 and Mark 14:26. The closing hymn here referred to was probably the chant called by the Jews "the great Hallel," and which consists of parts of Psalms 115, 116, 117 and 118, these parts being sung at the close of the Passover. "It is hardly conceivable," writes one commentator, "that the eleven disciples should have been singing to cheer their sorrowing hearts and that their Lord should have stood silent beside them."
