I learned a lot about the history of hymns in general, with some surprising facts. Such as: Jesus Loves the Little Children actually has 3 verses. We only sing the chorus.
Also, multiple were written by teenagers! I definitely did not have such beautiful, Christ-centered sophistication in my writing as a teen!
Many hymns were born out of great tragedy and are a direct reflection of Scripture.
I had really high expectations for this book because I LOVE hymns. It was definitely good, but I think I would have enjoyed it more if he focused on 50 rather than 150 hymns and allotted more time to each story and author. The stories seemed a little rushed and incomplete.
Aside from the stories, I really enjoyed praying through the rich lyrics of each hymn.
The Love of God, one of my favorite hymns was written on an empty lemon crate in a citrus packing house in California.
“Could we with ink the ocean fill and were the skies of parchment made,
Were every stalk on earth a quill, and every man a scribe by trade,
To write the love of God above would drain the ocean dry,
Nor could the scroll contain the whole though stretched from sky to sky.”
HERE’S WHY: The words and music are presented as sheet music, but each line is a separate image. If I enlarge the first line of words and music so I can read them in Kindle on my iPad mini, when I get to the end of the line I must then close that image and go through the process of enlarging the next line. I find that starting and stopping like that creates frustration and eliminates the pleasure of singing the hymn. I tried enlarging the font, which, predictably, did not affect the images containing sheet music.
AS A CUMBERSOME WORK-AROUND, I just now spent some time fiddling with options for ZOOM under ACCESSIBILITY, which is in GENERAL in the SETTINGS app on the iOS 11.2.0. Within the Kindle app, I switched to one-column view, and then with the ZOOM control, I RESIZED THE LENS to include all images of the desired sheet music, and adjusted magnification accordingly. This way I can comfortably sing the entire hymn without interruption. HOWEVER, since I am not visually impaired, I do not need the “zoomer” active ALL the time, so I will need to turn it on in settings before I use the digital hymnal, and then turn it off again afterward. Not a terribly huge deal, I think, but I feel such gyrations shouldn’t be necessary for someone with normal vision, and it may become more trouble to me than it’s worth. They can do better. I’ll try the zoomer for a while to see what I think of it.
And this is the paperback version. I’m going to have to buy him book #2 for Christmas.
I knew many of the songs but others not so much. Also some of the patriotic songs we sing were written as hymns. If you enjoy music you will like this very much. No gained knowledge, is wasteful.
