Traditional hymns making a comeback

After the emergence and growing presence of Christian praise songs on Sunday, some modern hymn writers are looking to go retro.

According to NPR, husband-and-wife duo Keith and Kristyn Getty of Nashville, Tenn., have been working together to bring back the traditional worship hymn. They believe some people might feel closer to God through more traditional-sounding songs.
