Then Sings My Soul by Robert J. Morgan
Then Sings My Soul 150 of the Worlds Greatest Hymns Stories
by Robert J, Morgan
This Book is so cute. 307 Pages full of hymns that most people are familiar with, such as Rock of Ages, Jesus Loves the Little Children, and one of my personal favorites The Old Rugged Cross.
This book is more than just a traditional hymnal that we all can find in most churches. It is quite more. One thing that makes it different is it gives the hymn on the left side of the page. and on the right It will have the name of the song, a verse from the Bible that is relevant to the hymn and a brief history of the song. Who wrote it, when was it written and sometimes what happened to have the song written, and it ends with another verse from the Bible to sum it up.
The book has many traditional Christmas hymns such as O Little Town of Bethlehem, Good King Wenceslas and Silent Night.
The Author didn't leave out an American hymn My Country tis of thee and National Anthem of the United States The Star Spangled Banner.
There Are some Songs I was not familiar with and I enjoyed looking them up by Google or You Tube.
The pages were adorable made to look like old torn on the edges paper. I thought that was very creative and took me back in time in my mind.
At the very end of the book the songs are listed in Alphabetical by title, and if that wasn't easy enough to find your song you are looking for,
Also I know the first line of some hymns but have no clue what the name of them are..... well you can look at the back of the book and it is listed by the first line of the hymn and where to find the page. That was so creative I have never seen an author do this before.
