Excerpt from Life-Time Hymns: A Collection of Old and New Hymns of the Christian Church; For the Use in Churches, Sunday-Schools, Prayer Meetings and Social Gatherings
A book worthy of such a title ought to be rich in hymns and in music. A There is not a hymn in this book that is not worthy to live in our memories for a life time.
There are some hymns that go with us from childhood to manhood and womanhood, and are still with us when we reach the gates of heaven. They never lose their power over us and their charm is never broken. Other hymns come and go, but these abide. Such hymns have been gathered from all possible sources for the enrichment of these pages.
The music is of a high order. Much of it is classical. Many of the best pieces have been thoroughly tested by trained choirs and large congregations.
There is need of a book which will aid in elevating the poetical and musical taste of the people. Life-time-hymns will contribute largely to this desired result.
Acknowledgments are hereby gratefully extended to the composers, writers and publishers who have permitted us to use their valuable copy rights.
For Sabbath-schools, social meetings, and great out-door assemblies, we believe-life-time-hymns is without a peer.
