Classic Gospel Hymns is the second hymnbook in a trilogy of classic gospel collections. Classic Gospel Hymns is a collection of 320 all-time favorite gospel songs, expanding the basic hymns to include many hymns written later in the Twentieth Century. We genuinely hope this book will preserve songs that are the very roots of our American Christian heritage and church history. With this intent, the songs have been set in a format of shape notes and four-part harmony to preserve both the appearance and feel of those early days in America. We have also set the songs with larger than normal type for easy reading. We dedicate this fine collection to everyone who remembers those days and those who want to keep the flames of those precious memories burning in the hearts of the next generation.
