Hymn Story: God Give Us Christian Homes

Baylus B. McKinney wrote the hymn “God, Give Us Christian Homes” which is very fitting for Mother’s Day.

He wrote around 150 songs and composed music for about 115 more songs.

McKinney served as music editor for the Robert H. Coleman Company and on the faculty at the School of Sacred Music at Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary.  He also pastored several churches and in 1935, became music editor for the Baptist Sunday School Board in Nashville, Tennessee.
