"When I first received the call about the OBE, I was pretty surprised. It's a real honour for our family and for the field of hymn writing, which has been on the decline in recent years."
"I am very grateful to her Majesty the Queen for this honour. I've never met any of the royal family before, my wife wants to discuss fashion with Kate Middleton."
"Keith and his wife Kristyn have revolutionised the modern-day hymn and have made people the world over fall in love with hymn singing once again," said Ian Paisley MP, the son of evangelical preacher Rev. Ian Paisley.
