Hymn of the Month for September '87 Through June '88
Several people have asked for more advance notice of the songs to be featured in the Hymn of the Month column. The Reformed Worship staff was also pleased to learn that many Christian school teachers are using the program in their classrooms. The following songs are scheduled for the next three issues. Both first lines and tune names are given as combined in the Psalter Hymnal. In other hymnals, the texts may be found to other tunes, and vice versa.
