I wanted to buy this hymnal because it was the one we used in church when I was growing up. These cherished songs aren't sung much today and I wanted to introduce my children to them and pass them along to another generation. These wonderful songs should still be sung. They are timeless. The book quality is good, just like the one I remember.
Our church has enjoyed this hymnal for over 40 years. It contains most of the old standards that are still relevant today, such as Power in the Blood and I'll Fly Away. Although our church has many up to date contemporary songs, we still sing the songs of our forefathers in our worship service. God bless
I first came across this hymnal in 2 rural South Carolina churches. I asked the pastor of one if I could buy one of them. The hymnals were so old in both churches that I thought it was out of print until I found it here! I love it because it has some really old hymns that just aren't in the newer hymnals. I love this hymnal!!
