Contents: Foreword: grandmothers and grand hymns --
Preface: songs for the journey --
Introduction: breathing towards heaven --
The hymns --
1529-1699: Still thine angels 'round me sing --
A mighty fortress is our God --
Now thank we all our God --
The lord will come and not be slow --
Now all the woods are sleeping --
Give to the winds thy fears --
Awake, my soul, and with the sun --
Now from the altar of my heart --
As pants the hart for cooling streams --
1700-1799: Let every heart prepare Him room --
There is a land of pure delight --
When I survey the wond'rous cross --
Joy to the world --
Descend from heav'n, immortal dove --
Who are these like stars appearing --
Hark, the herald angels sing --
Rise, my soul, and stretch thy wings --
Peace be to this habitation --
See how great a flame aspires --
I want a principle within --
Come, thou fount of every blessing --
Thou lovely source of true delight --
Amazing grace --
Sometimes a light surprises --God moves in a mysterious way --
Precious Bible! what a treasure --Tho' troubles assail --
Blest be the tie that binds --
City called heaven --
1800-1899: 'Tis the gift to be free --
When spring unlocks the flowers --I love to steal awhile away --
Lord, teach us how to pray aright --
Angels from the realms of glory --
Lord, with glowing heart I'd praise thee --
The perfect world / by Adam Trod --Go down, Moses --
The hour-glass --
O where are kings and empires now --
Nearer, my God, to thee --
Believe not those who say --
A little kingdom I possess --
Simple gifts --It came upon the midnight clear --
Every time I feel the Spirit --
Ring out the old, ring in the new --Good King Wenceslas --
What a friend we have in Jesus --
The voice that breathed o'er Eden --
We three kings of orient are --
Again, as evening's shadow fall --
Eternal Father, strong to save --
Even me --
I heard the bells on Christmas Day --
Shall we gather at the river? --
'Tis winter now, the fallen snow --
O little town of Bethlehem --
Lord, speak to me --
Saved by grace --
America the beautiful --
1900-present: All Christly souls are one in Him --
Lift every voice and sing --
I'll overcome some day --
Be thou my vision --
His eye is on the sparrow --
O God of earth and altar --
Joyful, joyful, we adore thee --
In Christ there is no east or west --
Will the circle be unbroken? --
In the garden --
O God, I cried, no dark disguise --
The prodigal son --
Precious Lord, take my hand --
Now the silence --
As we gather at your table --
Prayer for creation.
Responsibility: foreword by Paula S. Wallace ; preface by Carl P. Daw, Jr. ; edited by Anna Marlis Burgard ; illustrated by Richard Krepel.
