Hymns from the Heart is the eleventh album and the second gospel album of singer Johnny Cash, released in 1962 (see 1962 in music). It features a selection of gospel songs, and is the second album of this type released by Cash, the first being Hymns by Johnny Cash. Cash later recorded many more gospel albums, including Sings Precious Memories and Believe in Him, among others. This album has a more traditional hymn/gospel feel than Cash's previous Hymns album.
