From: Easton's 1897 Bible Dictionary

    occurs only Eph. 5:19 and Col. 3:16. The verb to "sing an hymn"
    occurs Matt. 26:30 and Mark 14:26. The same Greek word is
    rendered to "sing praises" Acts 16:25 (R.V., "sing hymns") and
    Heb. 2:12. The "hymn" which our Lord sang with his disciples at
    the last Supper is generally supposed to have been the latter
    part of the Hallel, comprehending Ps. 113-118. It was thus a
    name given to a number of psalms taken together and forming a
    devotional exercise.
      The noun hymn is used only with reference to the services of
    the Greeks, and was distinguished from the psalm. The Greek
    tunes required Greek hymns. Our information regarding the
    hymnology of the early Christians is very limited.
