Note: These copies contain slight imperfections, including scuffing to the covers, slight spots and etc. In some cases they may contain slight imperfections to the interior pages, but overall the imperfections do not detract from the usability of the hymnal. 

Psalms. Hymns. Spiritual Songs. All are commanded. All are included.

Do you want to reawaken congregational song in your church? Do you desire to hear the voices of young and old alike worshiping together in song? Do you believe the Bible? If so, this is your hymnal.

Psalms and Hymns and Spiritual Songs stands apart as the most usable hymnal available. It is the most unique, most singable, most accurate, most biblical, most logical, and most exhaustive hymnal.

Most Unique:  Psalms and Hymns and Spiritual Songs is unlike any hymnal you’ve ever held. With scripture references beside the systems of musick, historical sketches on hundreds of favorite lines, an exhaustive record of the lyric and tune origins and a format focused on congregational song, it is truly one of a kind.

Most Singable: From the beginning sketches of this publication, it has been tuned for congregational and family use. The keys selected are deliberately targeted for accessibility by both male and female voices. Styling and formatting are focused on clarity of lyrics and vocal part reading, along with notations and dynamics that aid congregational song.

Most Accurate: Using modern technologies and old-fashioned legwork, the editorial team has taken great pains to ensure the attribution of authorship, origins and original lines are authentic. From the libraries of London to the archives of churches gone by, the smallest details have been validated. The result is a book with pristine lyrics as the author intended, returning mangled and forgotten lines to the hands of the redeemed.

Most Biblical: With more than 16,000 scripture references from all 66 books of the Bible, the song selections are cross-referenced to nearly any biblical sermon or theme. In addition, a supreme focus has been made to ensure the lyrics are doctrinally sound and definitively biblical.

Most Logical: Genesis opens with "In the beginning, God...." Appropriately, the hymnal opens with "O Worship the King!" as it introduces the topic of God. Topics then proceed chronologically through the godhead, creation, the birth of Christ, the gospel, the church, Christian living and more. It pinnacles in parallel with Revelation with praise in Heaven. Songs have been placed in their appropriate timeline and both young and mature Christian alike will find encouragement and learning as they proceed through the selection.

Most Exhaustive: With nearly 1,000 songs, Psalms and Hymns and Spiritual Songs is a vast collection of hymnody. Covering more than twelve centuries of past labours and reaching across topics that are omitted from nearly every modern publication, these works transcend numerous peoples and languages handed down for centuries to our present day.

Psalms and Hymns and Spiritual Songs - Blemished

Hefty collection worth singing through

When I hefted the package containing my discounted copy of "Psalms and Hymns and Spiritual Songs," it seemed to promise endless opportunities to praise God. I am not disappointed, for immediately I began discovering songs new to me, and familiar ones set to alternative tunes. The discount I got owed to "blemished," but so far I have found no blemishes at all! My copy seems totally intact and accurately printed and bound. Thanks!

Psalms and Hymns and Spiritual Songs - Blemished

The only negative comment I would have for this purchase is the fact that I was not aware that it was not a shape-note edition (but I could use the practice with regular notation!). Other than that, it’s great to see such a variety of hymns, sometimes with extra verses I’d never seen before, along with scriptural notation and some interesting notes about the composers & lyricists and what happened to bring them to produce their work.

What a masterpiece

We are very pleased with the diligence with which this hymnal has been put together. It far exceeds our expectations. We will be ordering these for our church in the near future.

I very much have appreciated the copies of Psalms & Hymns & Spiritual Songs. Hymns always have so much more meaning when the Christian knows the history behind the writing of the Hymn. As these old hymns are so impregnated with Doctrinal & Spiritual truth, and each line has a scriptural reference to connect the lyrics, the Hymn Book can readily be used as a devotional tool. I have gifted several copies to Pastor friends and intend to purchase several more for the same. In an age when newer more modern so-called Christian music is being written, it is more important than ever to return to the old, as the new so called ‘hymns” are seriously lacking in sound Biblical/Doctrinal truth. In conclusion; how can a Christian truly worship and Glorify the Lord in our music if it is not first and foremost “Scriptural!?”
