A book review by Julie Pohlman (book 1 and book 2)
What a wonderful reference pair these two books make! Located inside each book are 150 of the worlds’ greatest hymns and their stories. The hymn is on one side of the page and the story of it’s creation on the other. There are hymns in these 2 books that you may remember from your childhood and can’t find them elsewhere—from Shall We gather at the River, The Little Brown Church in the Vale, Jesus Loves me this I Know, to Rock of Ages, Bringing in the Sheaves and Sunshine in My Soul. Between the two songbooks, there are 300 songs. If you are ever looking for some favorite hymn, try checking out the Then Sings my Soul pair.
You can find these terrific gems in the Music and Art section on our library.
