At Melody Publications, we are a team of individuals with a deep love for psalms and hymns and spiritual songs. With over a century of combined experience in congregational music, we believe that songs of praise are essential to individual, family, and congregational worship.
From the morning stars at Creation through the psalm of Moses and to the harmony of heaven, music is one of the few activities that transcends time and eternity. Its lines and melody exact praise from our lips and bury truth in our hearts. It should be in our constant vision, hearing, and meditations.
Our goal is to provide the melody of truth to ready hearts and minds. We hope you will enjoy the resources within these pages and find them to be an encouragement, moment-by-moment.
This is a lovely book! So nicely done, with many old favorites and some new ones to learn, as well.
I love this hymnal! The variety is excellent. The commitment to original hymn lyrics is appreciated. Oh that every home had one of these to bless its members.
I use this hymnal in my daily devotional along with Daily Strength. Two of my daughters (after looking at mine) have also ordered their sets of Daily Strength. I love that there are 980 hymns in the book. All are absolutely Biblically based.
I have just finished my first week in Volume 1 and must say I know I am going to love it. Having taught music for over 25 years, I am loving the hymn aspect of this study as well as all the study that goes with it. Looking forward to going through all 4 volumes.
I love this devotional. It is the best one I have ever used and I am 62 years old. It is a Bible study within a short daily devotional. I meditate and think on the subject through the week. The Lord has brought things to my mind that go along with the weekly subject of study. I also love that it is KJ. The hymn book that goes along with the devotionals is a blessing.
Wonderful deep songs, playable on the piano!
The leather hymnal is great for the song leader. The 5 ribbons that are in the hymnal are great for marking the desired hymns. The soft leather also works well for holding the hymnal open when playing the piano.
My husband and I just love the way this hymnal gives Scriptures references for the songs! Amazing. We purchased one for each of our adult daughters for Christmas. Fast and quality service!
I especially like the scripture references listed on each song where the song is taken from ad well as the short bios of the authors. Good selection of hymns!
Very good devotional and a good value.
Probably the most complete hymnal you can buy. Certainly the most exhaustive collection I have found. Very pleased.
Psalms and Hymns and Spiritual Songs (Shape Note)
Pros: Nice paper stock
I like the color, ordered burgundy, looks great
Love the extra stanzas to hymns
Appreciate the history of the songs
The index is different from other hymnals I’ve used, but I’m getting use to it
Overall, it’s a great hymnal!
I really love this hymnal. It focuses on older songs. They seem to have purposely omitted songs by more modern composers like Ron Hamilton, Bill Gaither, etc The newest was John W. Peterson. And I like that. Leaves room for older hymns that you don’t see anywhere else. Well organized And good quality and fast shipping. Thank you for this treasure.
The variety and depth of the Hymns is perfect. There were many “old favorites” and some I was not familiar with. There is plenty of material here to satisfy any congregation for years to come
