    I grew up in the church, and hymns were something I always loved. In fact, hymns are something that are somewhat "out of style" in most churches today, and I miss them a lot. This was like visiting a friend I hadn't seen in a while. I loved the history in the book, and I also loved the fact that each hymn was printed in the book with the music. I love reading the stories behind all these hymns. Some of them are well-known to me, and some are not. But all of the hymns were written to worship God within the church and even in one's personal devotional life.

    The book was very well-organized so that you can easily find the hymns you know and love. This book is set up very well for daily devotions. In fact, I do not recommend that you sit down to read this cover to cover. I tried to do that, and I felt overwhelmed. Read this story by story, and I believe that you will truly be encouraged in your Christian walk. I was most intrigued by the real story of "It Is Well With My Soul." I had never heard the entire story behind my favorite hymn, and now I know it. It makes the song even more meaningful to me. I highly recommend this song to anyone who loves the hymns or wishes to discover them. There is certain to be something that will resonate with you.

    I was sent a copy of this book in exchange for my honest review. I was not financially compensated, and all opinions are 100 percent mine.

    I absolutely love this book! I love all the hymns of the faith. This author not only gives a brief history of different types of hymns in general but also information about the author of the hymn and why it was written. Powerful to read why some of the hymns were written. The content of the hymns are as the author says "miniature Bible studies." I love how he included all the verses of each hymn as well as the music, so I can play them on the piano. Again, this is a great book to have and read during devotional time or anytime.

    "Then Sings My Soul, Volume 3" by Robert J. Morgan presents the classic hymns of the faith in a magnificent two-thousand year repertoire of music in Christian hymnody that reverberates awesomely through the ages of time. By learning the splendid legacy of our past, we create a beautiful legacy for our future.

    All creation sings God's praise in a magnificent crescendo of sights and sounds.The Lord created us with an extraordinary capability for music and song. We are designed and destined to sing His glorious praises. "God lives in the praises of His people." Our spirits respond to God's truth in a musical form. Hymns are "distillations of the richest truths of God," "bursts of devotional richness,""portable units of praise," and "miniature Bible studies" that lead us to worship and praise God. Hymns have "an indestructible freshness and power." A hymnbook is one of "the richest fountains of edification."

    Sifting through the overarching heritage of our hymnody, we come to the root core of praise. The history of our hymnody is a rich and varied study of inspiring legacies, selfless heroes and astounding stories. The history of the church is recorded in her soul-stirring hymns while the story of Christianity can be read in its inspiring songs. Just like the well-gleaned promises of the Bible, a unique hymn is available for each particular need of ours, covering every single circumstance we will ever face in life.

    God loves music. He recorded a lot of it in the Bible. God loves it when His children sing His praises. Hymns and songs proclaim God's truth. God blesses people in every age and clime with the amazing ability to compose songs and music to glorify His Name in all the earth. God the Holy Spirit sings through the voice of His church. "When we sing to the Lord, it is the Holy Spirit welling up and overflowing in our hearts!" God is praised and honored when we sing to Him! To God alone be all the glory!

    I purchased all 3 of these books to go to our family home. Our family home was always one of music and hymns were a favorite. My cousin showed me her 2 books and told me of the story that her husband used to read the histories at their bible study and they would then sing the hymn.

    I have often wondered where to find a book that tells the story behind the cherished songs we know so well. From time to time, I've heard tidbits of stories about Franny Crosby, Horatio Spafford, and other well known hymn writers. When asked to review Then Sings My Soul (Book 3), I jumped at the opportunity.

    Robert Morgan has done a wonderful job of compiling the history, stories of, and reasons for continuing with hymns in modern worship. While I was only seeking a book of "stories", this offers much more.

    Prior to reading this book, I had never really thought about the age of some of the songs we sing. The first part of this book discusses hymnody in context of Biblical, Ancient, Medieval, German, English, and Gospel/Contemporary Praise music. It's quite the interesting and informative read.

    Most of the history surrounding each hymn is brief (a page long), detailing the song's authorship, area/time written in, and circumstances surrounding said author's life. Each hymn is included (with sheet music). As an added touch, the book itself is constructed so as to resemble old hymnal pages; very nostalgic.

    I look forward to reading Books 1 and 2.
