Sing Joyfully. For congregation. This edition: Pew edition (navy blue). Collection. Sacred, Devotion, General. Hymnal. Published by Hope Publishing Company (HP.1502).
SING JOYFULLY represents a large step forward in introducing new gospel songs, hymns, and praise choruses. While maintaining the core-list of best-loved hymns, well over 200 new songs have been included in SING JOYFULLY, when compared with its predecessor, HYMNS OF FAITH. There are 70 songs of adoration, 39 scripture songs, 25 hymns of the Holy Spirit, 34 hymns for Advent and Christmas, 32 hymns for Lent and Easter, and 14 hymns of spiritual warfare, to name just a few of the many categories.
Certain features have been added that hopefully will stimulate creativity in corporate worship. One of these is the distribution of appropriate readings throughout the book in order to complement and amplify the themes of the hymns. The readings, liturgies, and prayers are thoroughly indexed for easy accessibility. Other helpful indexes include an exhaustive Topical Index, An Index of Authors and Composers, and of Copyright Owners and Sources.
In addition to the scriptures interspersed throughout the book, the traditional Responsive Readings are found in the rear of the hymnal, and feature the New International Version of the Bible, except in the case of the most memorable, classic passages, such as Psalm 23, etc. SING JOYFULLY has been organized in a traditional manner, grouping hymns in general categories, such as Worship, Testimony, Guidance, and so forth. Each section is introduced with its own subject-title page. Care has been taken to present a handsome, uncluttered hymn-page, with a readable type.
LOOSE-LEAF EDITION - A loose-leaf, flat opening edition of SING JOYFULLY is offered particularly for organists, pianists and choir directors in a durable three-ring binder. This special edition is slightly larger than the pew edition (making it easier to read) and is available in red. The loose-leaf edition may not be specially imprinted with the church name.
DELUXE PULPIT EDITION - A perfect gift item. This maroon book is bound in GENUINE leather and contains a ribbon marker and gilded page edges. This book is specially packaged in tissue in an attractive gift box.
