Then Sings My Soul -150 of the World’s Greatest Hymn Stories By Robert J. Morgan
Robert J. Morgan’s lifelong interest in hymns led him to discover the richness of stories behind many of the best-loved hymns. He features 150 of some of the greatest Christian hymns and songs, complete with music and lyrics plus a one-page background of each piece. His goal is to keep these traditional hymns vital and meaningful to all generations.
With more than 1,000,000 copies sold, I’d say it’s working.
These devotional-style stories highlight the people whose faith led them to write these wonderful hymns and the people whose faith was affected by reading, hearing, and singing the songs. These are a few snippets from the book that are historically interesting and inspirational to read.
Father Joseph Mohr wrote “Silent Night” due to the fact that the church organ was broken and something was needed for the Christmas Eve presentation in 1818.
Jesus Loves Me was written by Anna Warner for a book, Say and Seal which became a best seller, second only to Uncle Tom’s Cabin. Miss Warner and her sister conducted Bible classes for cadets at West Point for forty years and were buried with full military honors. They are the only civilians buried in this cemetery at West point.
The book features a special softcover, French flap cover design, ivory paper with brown ink and a ragged-edge paper, giving it a classic feel. It’s a special book to share with family and friends.
