Having scanned through the lesson quarterly, there are so many hymns from which to choose a theme. In effect, there is a commencing theme hymn which changes through the quarter to the finale theme hymn. To start with, we could use:
Hymn 552 – The Lord’s My Shepherd or
Hymn 545 – Savior, Like a Shepherd.
Somewhere in the middle of the quarter one could change the theme and add in
Hymn 159 – On a Hill Far Away which is where we complete our studies in Lesson 13.
With God “seeking to purify us, to refine us like gold, to transform us into His image”, we find His image stamped on us in
Hymn 97 – Lord of the Boundless Curves of Space – verse 3, in particular.
Sunday’s study ends by reminding us of the battle all around us, and this flows over into Monday, where we will sing
Hymn 614 – Sound the Battle Cry. In this Great Controversy battle, “we have to press ahead in faith, trusting Him”:
Hymn 279 – Only Trust Him and
Hymn 535 – I Am Trusting Thee, Lord Jesus just as Job did so long ago in fixing his eyes on God. Today we may
Turn Your Eyes Upon Jesus – Hymn 290 and ask
Open My Eyes That I May See – Hymn 326 so we may then sing
Mine Eyes Have Seen the Glory of the Coming of The Lord – Hymn 647.
Tuesday reminds us again of the “signs of Jesus’ soon return all around us”:
Hymn 212 – ‘Tis Almost Time for the Lord to Come,
Hymn 200 – The Lord Is Coming and Hymn 201 – Christ Is Coming.
Wednesday continues the theme
Jesus Is Coming Again – Hymn 213 and reiterating
You Will See Your Lord A-Coming – Hymn 438.
With all that is going on in the world today, it is important to have Character and Community (Thursday), noting that we will be standing alone many times in our lives. Here our character and the community, the church body that is built by us all will have no trouble in being able to
Stand Like the Brave – Hymn 610 and be found
Leaning on the Everlasting Arms – Hymn 469.
Ellen G White states in Education page 225 “Character building is the most important work ever entrusted to human beings”:
We’ll Build on The Rock – Hymn 531.

Another great resource is for when there is a hymn you wish to sing but can’t find it in your hymnal. Go to https://www.sdahymnal.org and in the search bar type a special word in that is in the hymn. I am sure you will be amazed at the help you will be given.
2 Timothy 2:15 KJV – “Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.”
