The Trinity Hymnal, Hymns, Heretics, History, Isaac Watts' Unitarianism, Women Teachers, etc. by Pastor W.J. Mencarow
Brothers and Sisters,
After reading Hymns, Heretics and History, which makes the point that singing is a powerful form of teaching, and churches that would never allow women to teach men (1 Corinthians 14:34-35) nevertheless sing hymns written by women. I looked in the most recent (red) Trinity Hymnal, which as you know is used by many Reformed churches, to see if there were any hymns with lyrics written by women. There are at least 86. There may be more -- some of the first names are initials. That represents 13% of the total (742).
Those songs attributed to "The Psalter" are 75 in number (10%). So there are more hymns with words written by women in the Trinity Hymnal than there are Psalms, or even what may be paraphrases of Psalms.
Also, there are 35 hymns written by Issac Watts, who at the least had unorthodox views of the Trinity and seems closer to Arianism.
