I found more than 90 instances of the words "love," meaning love of the Savior or eternal love, in the church songbooks. I chronicled these, giving some of the words, background, and pictures of the composers and authors.

Love is everywhere. It is the overriding principle of success. The so-called “law of attraction” feeds on love. If we exhibit love to others in our good deeds and demeanor, we will be loved and all and our fondest desires will be made manifest and complete.

As you read this book, thoughts of good deeds for your fellow man will saturate your mind. While I was researching, my mind found great peace and more love for the Savior of mankind. I can testify that my feelings for that which uplifts and brings the spirit of Christ closer to us is found in these hymns.

I was edified and made to feel of the spirit of the song writers and composers. It was a cathartic, growing experience. I would recommend to all that they read as much as they can about each hymn. In many churches, the songs have been canonized--meaning they are considered scripture.

So it is essential for all of us to not only sing and contemplate the words of the hymns and their meaning, but to make time to learn the hymns so that each of us can have this abiding spirit with us throughout our days and nights.

Love permeates our lives. Nature testifies of God and we become more loving when we reverence and respect everything God has given us: the sun, this glorious earth, the clouds, the mountains, deserts, seas and rivers, the air we breath, and the heavens including the moon, the stars, and other planets. Think of all of the space in the middle of the earth and in the oceans, sky, mountains, plains, and beautiful valleys. As you read these hymns bring to mind your life and that of others who may not enjoy what you have. Imagine the wonderful gifts God has given us: lush vegetation including trees, grasses, and bushes, the crystal-clear blue lakes, streams and great rivers, the country in which we live and its natural and man-made resources, the tundra of the north and south poles, and the isles of the sea, the moisture from the storms that provide water for existence, all kinds of life inhabiting seas.streams, forests, and deserts, and animals and other forms of life everywhere. It was all placed here by God for our use. If we have the spirit of the Lord in our lives--something that can be enhanced and acquired by reading scripture and hymns--then we will treat all of God's gifts to us with reverence and respect. We will not want to destroy property of others, but to be friends with all peoples.

The above may sound like a simple injunction, but it isn't. When we think of it people are not at peace. They are rioting, killing, burning, bombing, and doing all manner of evil. Some of these riots are done in the name of liberty, but mostly when evil occurs nothing good comes of it. Let us think twice and pray before we enter into this chaotic scene that the world has become.

Editorial Reviews

Horace Foote
I looked at it briefly before it went public and what I do like is all the pictures and background he has provided on hymns--mainly of people throughout the world. Many of these hymns were written by people of all ages and spiritual persuasions.I'll be excited to see the finished product in NOOK format.
