This collection of metrical psalms and hymns was inspired by the spiritual riches of Our Own Hymn Book, compiled by C.H. Spurgeon in 1866, and once widely used among Particular Baptist Churches – especially causes pastored by Spurgeon’s numerous students. Although this is an entirely new hymnal, the link with Our Own Hymn Book is emphasised because the ethos and design of that outstanding collection has been keenly imitated, though in modern context.
This book begins with an evangelical psalter – ‘Spirit of the Psalms’ (the first 150 hymn numbers correspond to the 150 psalms of the Bible) – followed by 591 carefully selected hymns.
