6. And Can It Be

7. Abide With Me

8. Guide Me, O Thou Great Redeemer

9. Make Me A Channel Of Your Peace

10. The Day Thou Gavest, Lord, Is Ended

The hymns featured in a special edition of the Songs of Praise Big Sing that was broadcast on Sunday 27 October 2013.

The results of the nationwide vote were sung by five thousand people at the Royal Albert Hall with guest stars Russell Watson, Michael Ball, Andrea Begley, Friar Alessandro and the newly-crowned Songs of Praise Gospel Choir of the Year.
