Searching around last week I encountered Nathan Drake and his music as Reawaken Hymns.
Hymns are given minor rearrangements to suit guitar/acoustic singing.
The results are a considered and helpful transition of songs to the musical style used in many churches today.
He’s been at it for a few years now, and I’m surprised I didn’t bump into his work sooner.

Here is the hymn I Am Resolved, lyrics by Palmer Hartsough in the late 1800s, as presented by Nathan.

The lyrics:
1
I am resolved no longer to linger,
Charmed by the world’s delight,
Things that are higher, things that are nobler,
These have allured my sight.
Refrain:
I will hasten to Him,
Hasten so glad and free;
Jesus, greatest, highest,
I will come to Thee.
2
I am resolved to go to the Savior,
Leaving my sin and strife;
He is the true One, He is the just One,
He hath the words of life.
Refrain:
I will hasten to Him,
Hasten so glad and free;
Jesus, greatest, highest,
I will come to Thee.
