The denominational hymnals published during the past generation are now old enough to require major supplementation. Many new hymns, songs and choruses have appeared. Experience has shown that some older treasures were missed when the current hymnals were compiled. Denominational hymnal supplements are being produced to include new music and old favorites. The Faith We Sing has been compiled primarily as a supplement to The United Methodist Hymnal (1989). Nothing here duplicates what is already in that hymnal. Rather, it is an ecumenical rather than a denominational book. It can also serve as a supplement to other hymnals now in use.
In recent years, new music and worship styles have enriched the worship styles have enriched the worship experience, from contemporary worship and praise music to world music. New hymnody offers modern images and refreshing tunes that tell the old, old story. Now churches can continue to sing the hymns they treasure and add newer music to their worship life! All editions come with Cross & Flame emblem on the cover except for the "Cross Only" version of the Pew Edition.
