“These 134 songs from both present day and past hymn writers have been arranged in four-part harmony for local church, congregational singing. This songbook is intended to be a supplement to traditional hymnals.”
Each song also includes guitar chords.
You can view the list of the 134 songs here. It includes some of my favorites:
- Before the Throne of God Above
- How Deep the Father’s Love
- I Will Glory in My Redeemer
- In Christ Alone
- The Gospel Song
- O Church, Arise
- The Power of the Cross
- O Great God
Fred writes in the acknowledgments that his wife, Ruth Coleman, “did the majority of the harmonization of the tunes and all of the Finale typesetting. The concept and the song content were my only contributions; she did all the work and made it a reality.”
Our understanding of God and the gospel affects the quality of our worship through singing, and the quality of what we regularly sing affects our understanding of God and the gospel. These rich hymns engage our affections for the Triune God, and I thank God for them.
