Our Hymnal—An Appreciation

Our Hymnal as it is to-day is much more than a mere book of tunes with appropriate words designed to be used only in our churches. It denotes the best aid to public worship and private devotion that a consecrated committee twenty years ago could prepare after long and prayerful endeavors; and now, after years of utility, steps are being taken to enlarge and enrich it by the addition of many new tunes and words.

As stated in the Preface of our present Hymnal, "It is believed that it is representative of the best religious and poetic thought in hymnology;" and as the announcement has been made that the new edition will be completed and ready for distribution sometime in 1932, it is timely that an appreciation of the good the Hymnal has accomplished in its present form should be made.
