Laridian Book of Classic Hymns

Available Platforms


Why would someone engage in the publication of hymn texts, especially old hymn texts at a time when "contemporary" Christian music seems to rule the day?

The first and primary reason comes from Scripture. Although the New Testament makes limited reference to music and singing, Paul's instruction in Ep 5:18-20 and Col 3:16 gives them a significant role in the life of the believer both individually and corporately.

While much contemporary Christian music has value, it has not been through the sorting process that time provides. Not all good hymns survive and some inferior ones do, but generally the passing of time weeds out the chaff and allows the valuable ones to remain with us.

Next to memorizing Scripture itself, imbedding solid hymns in your life builds a foundation of truth to lean on throughout life. A skilled hymn writer is able to concentrate God's truth in such a way that it can have great practical impact in the believer's life.

Why should we value highly the great hymns of our Christian faith? They have Biblical foundations, historical value, memorable lyrics, and practical power. This is a great and useful tool to memorize, meditate on and sing the classic hymns to the glory of God.
