Book Review: Then Sings My Soul Special Edition [Deckle Edge] By Robert Morgan

Then Sings My Soul (Special Edition) by Robert Morgan indeed is a delightful collection to own, and I am so grateful to to make this book available for review.

It is a collection of 150 hymns for Christmas, Easter, Thanksgiving, general all-time favorites, etc.

Each hymn is presented in a two-page format, the left page is the music score of the hymn, and the right page is a devotional styled story behind the hymn.

The music score is written in an easy to play format, and being someone who enjoys playing piano, this book is really a great compilation to have.

Then Sing My Soul includes some of the hymns that I love the most, for example:

He leadeth me
Be Thou My Vision
And Can It Be That I Should Gain
Come Thou Fount of Every Blessing
This is My Father's World
'Tis So Sweet To Trust in Jesus
It Is Well With My Soul
Take My Life and Let it Be
Amazing Grace
The Old Rugged Cross
I Surrender All
.....................and the all-time classic children hymn, Jesus Loves Me This I Know.

It also includes the newer 'Because He Lives' by Bill and Gloria Gaither. It is so encouraging to read the story on how the Gaithers wrote 'Because He Lives'. It was during the sixties when racial tensions were on the rise in America that the Gaithers were blessed with another newborn that they were not expecting. They were pretty worried for the future of the new baby that Gloria was carrying. As they prayed, God gave them comforting words. In the words of the Gaithers, they said:

While pondering and praying about these things, we came to realize anew that our courage doesn't come from a stable world, for the world has never been stable. Jesus Himself was born in the cruelest of times. No, we have babies, raise families and risk living because the Resurrection is true!
Furthermore, this special edition comes with the deckle or jagged edge with French flap cover that gives the book a classical feel.

I give a 5-star for this book.
