The Christian Church has a superb tradition of God-glorifying hymns and choruses suitable for children's worship. Our Own Hymnbook contains both old and new items, chiefly well-known and memorable compositions loved over decades. It incorporates many of the famous choruses produced by the CSSM from the 1930s, excellent examples of how Gospel precision and commitment of heart may be united in verse. Selected by Jill Masters, author of Lessons for Life Sunday School lesson notes, this hymnbook was originally conceived for Britain's largest Sunday School at the Metropolitan Tabernacle, London. Nothing matches the traditional genre of hymn and chorus writing for spiritual accuracy, clarity, reverence and quality. Many of these songs of worship have lived on in the memories of children even to old age, serving as beacon lights of saving truth. May they continue to sow and keep the message of God's Word in the minds of many more young people.
