Pastor J. Doss, SC
I just wanted to let you all know what a blessing the Psalms, Hymns, and
Spiritual Songs hymnal is to our church. We cannot say enough about it, nor
thank the Lord enough for it. I can give true testimony that the Lord has
certainly used this hymnal to bless our church and bring us closer in our
worship to Himself. I told our church,... ...the Lord has raised up this hymnal in these closing Laodicean
hours as an aide to helping those saints who would, seek and return to
the old paths... ...it is a blessing to have something
that helps saints* get back,* rather than farther away.
I am pleased with the Scripture references included with these hymns. There are not just a few, which shows a thoughtful evaluation of the message of each hymn, which enables we who use this hymnal to read these verses with that same thoroughness and thoughtfulness.
I have often in my reading of commentaries & devotionals by godly men teaching timeless truths, read references to some of these great hymns of the faith but could never find them in our hymnal. There are many of these great hymns with great truths returned through this hymnal.
I am also surprised with the number of verses of hymns that have been excluded over the years, which have now been carefully restored. This allows for a greater selection of verses to be sung in worship services not afforded in most other hymnals that I have used over my years of pastoring.
