I was looking for a hymnal that contained my two favorite songs. This hymnal had them and so many other great hymns. The book is full of solid old-time songs we sang at church many years ago, and it also has some of the newer songs that have now become standards at worship services. I am thrilled to have this hymnal and the neighbors can probably hear me playing "Beulah Land" on the piano.
This is a great hymnal! Most of the great old hymns are there with the added benefit of being transposed to a lower key. As the pastor of a small church, I teach adult Sunday school, lead in worship through singing and then preach immediately after singing. I greatly appreciate the songs being in a lower key. My voice hasn't been strained since we started using this hymnal. It has also benefitted the ladies who are no longer straining to "hit the high notes." We purchased the binder for the pianist and the organist and the singers each have a hard copy of their own. Definitely worth buying.
Our congregation is thrilled with our new hymnals, the price, contents and quality, and the short amount of time it took to receive them after we placed our order. Keep up the good work, and God bless you all!
