Spurgeon's hymnbook, compiled in 1866, is a treasure of great value, including among over 1,000 hymns many doctrinal and experimental hymns now out of use through datedness of language. All these, however, are precious for personal devotional use.
Charles Haddon Spurgeon was passionate about congregational worship. Arising from devout affection, the frustration he found while using the the compilations of hymns available in his day, spurred him to compile this selection of hymns for use in his congregation. Over 1,000 psalms, hymns and spiritual songs include not only direct praise, but doctrine, experience and exhortation, enabling the saints to edify one another in their singing. Cross–references to Spurgeon’s other works ensure that this will be a valuable addition to any library.
