How many Christian hymns are there?
There are too many to count, many are long forgotten or unpopular, and others like "Amazing Grace" and "Hark ye herald angels sing" are well known.
There is also modern christian music, which can possibly be considered "hyms".
While Christian rock is growing popularity, there are still many people that enjoy listening to hymns. The majority of people listen to CCM in the Christian Music genre, more than rock or traditional hymns. However, Hymns have not died out in the church. In fact, most Christian rock artists, and CCM artists, sing hymns as well as their Christian rock songs when they perform live.
