Monthly with Hymn, June


While sitting in the Christmas service in a small church in Duarte, California, music director and hymn writer Audrey Mieir felt inspired. Her senses were alerted by the scent of pine branches, the manger scene in the choir loft, the beautiful performance of the traditional Christmas story, and the move of the Spirit.


When the pastor stood to begin his sermon, he started with the passage from Isaiah 9:6, “His name shall be called Wonderful…”

From that point, Mieir began writing the words and music for the hymn, “His Name is Wonderful.” Later, she completed the second half at the prompting of a friend.
