Are you sowing the seed of the kingdom, brother, For a harvest pure and white? Are you sowing the seed of the kingdom, brother, All along the fertile way?

Are you sowing the seed of the kingdom, brother, You must reap at the last great day. Chorus: For the harvest time is coming on, And the reapers' work will soon be done; Will your sheaves be many, will you garner any, For the gathering at the harvest home?

Perhaps his best known song, for which he wrote the words and composed the tune, was produced in when Dailey was living in Philadelphia, PA, and has been in nearly all of our books. Why did He choose a lowly birth? Because He loved me so!

Why did He drink the bitter cup Of sorrow, pain, and woe? Why on the cross be lifted up? Those who favored the innovations became known as Christian Churches and those who rejected them were called churches of Christ. The division became complete and was recognized by the U.

He even authored a book giving Biblical reasons to oppose the use of instrumental music in worship. However, he also wrote some hymns, the best known of which was published in Then on with the armor and dare to do right; Press on in the struggle till Christians are one.

And Paul, in devotion, doth echo the song, 'I beg you, my brethren, to speak the same thing. O shout the glad word, O hasten the day, When all of God's people are one. One result of these meetings is this hymn for which Kurfees wrote the words and Hopkins composed the music.

He wrote about gospel songs and provided the music for nearly by other writers. In he was conducting several singing schools in Hamilton County, TX, and spent the night in the home of a nearby friend.

While leaving in his buggy the next morning to travel to one of the schools, he looked back at the house and saw the sun rising up behind the eastern hills. This suggested a song theme to him, so he stopped to rest his horse and, while sitting on a rock by the roadside, jotted the song down.

There's a home for the soul where no sorrow can come, And where pleasures will never decay. Though the burdens of life may be heavy to bear, And your crosses and trials severe, There's a beautiful hand that is beckoning come, And no heartaches and sighings are there. In , Eiland went to Golden, TX, to conduct a singing school and to see an up and coming songwriter who lived there named Tillit Teddlie.

After graduation from college, McCaleb heard the call to 'go into all the world and preach the gospel' and spent much of his adult life working in Japan, conscientiously doing so without the aid of a missionary society to show that God's pattern will work. He wrote a hymn, which was first published in and reflected his understanding of the need for world evangelism.

Say not the heathen are at home, Beyond we have no call; For why should we be blest alone? The gospel is for all. Received ye freely, freely give; From every land they call; Unless they hear they cannot live: The gospel is for all. Chorus: The blessed gospel is for all, The gospel is for all; Where sin has gone must go His grace, The gospel is for all.

Acuff, who lived from to I've heard that he was a relative of the country music singer Roy Acuff, but I've never been able to confirm this. James often led singing for protracted meetings and produced several popular gospel songs, especially this one.

I am on my way to those mansions fair, Just over in the glory land; There to sing God's praise, and His glory share, Just over in the glory land. What a joyful thought that my Lord I'll see, Just over in the glory land; And with kindred dear there forever be, Just over in the glory land.

With the blood-washed throng I will shout and sing, Just over in the glory land; Glad hosannas to Christ, the Lord and King, Just over in the glory land. Chorus: Just over in the glory land, I'll join the happy angel band, Just over in the glory land; Just over in the glory land, There with the mighty host I'll stand, Just over in the glory land.

Gracious Father, hear our prayer--May we, now, Thy blessings share; Guide us safely all the way To that home of endless day. Let us in Thy love abide.

Lula Klingman Zahn, who lived from to , took two stanzas of unknown origin, supplied a third and provided a tune for the song. But what it thus receives it gives With glad unsparing hand; A stream more wide, with deeper tide, Flows on to lower land. There is a sea which day by day Receives a fuller tide; But all its store it keeps, nor gives To shore nor seas beside.

It's Jordan's stream, now turned to brine, Lies heavy as molten lead; Its dreadful name doth e'er proclaim That sea is waste and dead. Which will it be for you and me, Who God's good gifts obtain?

Shall we accept for self alone, Or take to give again? Along with Samuel H. Hall, also a preacher, he edited several well known songbooks used among churches of Christ, including The Cross and Resurrection in Song.

Not many of Hall's own songs remain in common usage, but he did write an invitation song which achieved some degree of usefulness.

There's redeeming love in Jesus, If you heed His gracious call. To eternity you're going, Fast as time can bear you on; Soon the day of preparation Will for evermore be gone. Chorus: Come to Jesus, dying sinner, O receive Him and be blest.

Come to Him in consecration; He will sweetly give you rest. Come, believing and repenting, And obey Jehovah's word. Be baptized into His kingdom, And be saved through Jesus' blood.

Chorus : A soul winner for Jesus, a soul winner for Jesus, O let me be each day; A soul winner for Jesus, a soul winner for Jesus, He's done so much for me.

In , he was sitting in his study trying to write a new song. Several attempts had been can in the waste can. This book appears to be somewhat popular in the South. In Forrest H. McCann edited Great Songs, Revised for Abilene University Press, but its use among most churches of Christ is limited because it is not in shaped notes.

In R. Stevens published Hymns for Worship, which has been rather continuously amended since then and is currently published as Hymns for Worship, Revised. This is the book that we now use at Haynes St. In John Wiegand edited Praise for the Lord revised in A quick look at catalogs put out by bookstores operated by members of churches of Christ indicates that the oldest songbook currently available is Great Songs of the Church No.

Jorgenson in and since published by Abilene Christian University Press with supplement added in Jorgenson followed seven standards for hymn selection: literary excellence, lyrical quality, appropriateness, reverence, spiritual reality, scripturalness, and unity. As a result, for some thirty years, this book was the benchmark for hymnbooks among churches of Christ.

Forrest McCann notes, "This copying of Great Songs is leading to its demise, and unless something changes it will soon be a thing of the poet Jorgenson's work, which has done much to elevate and standardize our hymnody than any other, is now in its death throes.

Sanderson is no longer around to edit hymnbooks and the Gospel Advocate is no longer publishing them.

Hymns for the Church of Christ (3rd thousand) |

In , just seven years before his death, Sanderson said, "I've spent my life trying to get good music in the church. Howard are both available, although the former is no longer as popular as it once was.

Wiegand's Praise for the Lord seem currently to be controlling the field among "mainstream" churches of Christ. Howard's book contains a large number of the recent "praise songs" some refer to these as "camp songs" and has many arrangements which seem more adapted for trained singing groups. Wiegand's book relegates most of the recent "praise songs" to a special section at the end, and its arrangements are adapted strictly to congregational singing.

Forrest McCann observed, "Some of these songs may well live, but it seems questionable to fill standard hymnals with what may prove to be ephemeral productions.

Stevens's Hymns for Worship seems to strike as good a balance as can be currently found. When it came time for the Haynes St. One of the biggest objections to Great Songs of the Church No. Boll and this influence did show through in some songs. Great Songs, Revised, is not published in shaped notes, a part of our musical heritage which I believe deserves to continue since a lot of our people have come to rely on them for learning how to sing.

The church here had used Sacred Selections before I came and was using Songs of the Church when I arrived, so we wanted something different. At least five hymns are included twice. Musically, there is much that is offensive to those of us who find no scriptural authority for choirs and solos or duets. Optional, syncopated, even jazzy descants are added to many old hymns, including 'Amazing Grace' and 'Rock of Ages.

These arrangements lend themselves to choirs or 'special music' situations with one or more individuals being featured soloists. The ration of new music to standard hymns is probably higher in Howard's new book than other recent hymnals. The new material chosen contains music with syncopated rhythms and stanzas with irregular syllabification, difficult for an unrehearsed group to follow.

Certainly, the adage, 'Keep it simple,' was not applied here. However, the print is rather small. Therefore, we chose Hymns for Worship. Regarding hymnbooks today, Forrest McCann wrote, "At the end of the 20th century, many changes have occurred in American church song.

We are rearing a generation of future church leaders who will be unaware of the historic hymns and therefore, will not care about such.

If this evaluation is correct, we may find ourselves again out of the mainstream of Christian song. References Autry, Philip. Brown, Paul. When you sing the psalms you are memorizing Scripture. An important part of Christian maturity is the ability to recall passages of Scripture at need. Educational circles have long recognized how music aids memorization. This is no accident; it reflects the providential hand of our Creator God.

He wants you to memorize his Word and has provided a mnemonic for easy memory—the Psalter as Scripture that was, and should be, set to music. When you sing the psalms you guard against heresy. Songs drive information deep into our hearts. However, this power can be used for ill means. As long as the church has existed, songs have been used to inculcate heresy.

Psalms are counter-heresy measures. When you sing the psalms you sing with the full range of human emotion. Godly anger, heart-wrenching sorrow, dark depression, effulgent joy, honest questioning, and exuberant praise are just a sampling of the emotional range covered by the psalms. Most churches sense the burden of teaching their people how to think. Very few consider their responsibility to teach their people how to feel. The psalms serve as the tutors of our affections.

When you sing the psalms you praise the person and work of Jesus Christ.


A little stroll through the cross-references in the New Testament should be enough to convince even the staunchest critic that to sing the psalms is to sing of the person and work of Christ. Find a Psalter you can sing. Different Psalters are suited to different musical abilities.

Some set each psalm to a particular tune while others simply provide the suggested meter, allowing you to choose the tune.
