Unique Books of Hymns everyone should know with melodies, all stanza, biography of authors and composers, and devotionals on the meaning of the text.
Our Hymns, Our Heritage
Hymnal, Textbook & Devotional
Our Hymns, Our Heritagewill enable children and youth to learn and know a carefully chosen selection of 120 of our greatest hymns, ancient, historical, and modern. Most adults say the book is beneficial to them as well. “Knowing” means not only the melody and text, but the history of the author and composer. Knowing an event or story that connects to the hymn’s creation is helpful. A brief devotional is also offered under the heading “As you sing this hymn”, It is written to reveal some hidden truths within the hymn text.
Our heritage of Christian saints is of great importance to our discipleship. If you own a family picture album that includes photos of long-deceased relatives, you do not want to remove or destroy the pictures just because they are no longer alive. Neither should a Christian’s knowledge of hymns and songs only include those who are living and modern saints.
This book includes four sections:
1. Hymns from the Church calendar year—including Christmas, Lent, Easter, and Pentecost. 2. A section of hymns on the many attributes of God 3. Hymns of our responses to God. 4. A selection of powerful African-American Spirituals, all of which are prayers.
Many people use these books for private or family worship. Additionally, they can be important for homeschooling families or for worship leaders to quickly find information for use in a worship service.
This is a nice hymnal for our homeschool use. Its design is more minimalist than the previous hymnals released by this company, but the cost effectiveness for a school or group of students is the trade-off. Thanks for another lovely hymn product to help me keep the little humans under my care grounded.
