Praise! has proved to be an invaluable resource for us to use in our corporate worship, breathing fresh life into many good older hymns and bringing together some of the best modern songs of today. We warmly commend it to other churches.
We have found it helpful to reverently sing many well-loved hymns in modern English. It has also been refreshing to learn many new, Christ-exalting hymns.
We have been using Praise! in St George’s-Tron since its publication. Praise! has enabled us to sing consecutively through the Psalms, to our great spiritual profit. Here – at last – is a hymnbook that deliberately tries to give back to the 21st century church – in understandable, singable words – the hymns our Lord Jesus Christ used.
At last some of the great old hymns are made accessible to a younger generation.
We have enjoyed singing familiar older hymns in updated language and learning new hymns and songs, especially from the psalms. All in all it has been a great asset in our public worship.
The best of the old and the new – always biblical, always singable – a great aid for contemporary congregational worship.
