The traditional view taught in most Christian Music/worship classes is:

A hymn is a christian lyric or song that has no repetitious refrain. (it has no chorus sung at the end of each verse.)

A Christian Song is a collection of multiple related Christian lyrics or verses which have a refrain (a chorus) that ties them all together an is repeated after each lyric/verse.

Examples of Hymns:

And Can It Be

How Firm a Foundation

A Mighty Fortress is Our God

Holy, Holy, Holy, Lord God Almighty

O God, Our Help in Ages Past

Amazing Grace

Joy to the World (and many Christmas hymns/songs you know well)

Examples of Christian Songs:

Victory In Jesus

How Great Thou Art!

The Comforter Has Come

Jesus Paid It All

When We All Get to Heaven

Tis' So Sweet to Trust in Jesus
