As promised in the book, this free downloadable guide provides a template for a worship service for churches. This guide will help you design an evening of song in which you can tell the story of the hymnal and sing through the various epochs of the church.
This is the third installment in the best selling tradition of Then Sings My Soul.
All creation, through all the ages, is designed to sing God’s praises. In providing even more historical context behind many favorites from a 2,000 year repertoire of music, Robert Morgan again sets out to keep the stories and the songs of our Christian hymnody alive for the next generation. You’ll find yourself worshipping your way through this hymnal from ancient to modern times.
The last in the Then Sings My Soul trilogy, Book 3 offers an overarching look across the centuries of Christian song by dividing the story of western hymnody into several major segments:
- Biblical Hymns
- Ancient Hymns
- Midieval Hymns
- German Hymns
- English Hymns
- Gospel Songs
- Contemporary Praise
In addition to gaining a deeper understanding of church history and learning more than fifty devotional-style stories about hymns through the ages, Book 3 also includes six more in-depth hymn stories that Robert Morgan loves to tell. Whether learning the real story behind “It Is Well with My Soul” or how the Warner sisters became beloved figures in the history of West Point Military Academy, your soul will be soothed and you’ll be inspired to share these stories with those you love. By knowing the heritage of our past, we’ll leave a legacy for our future.
