I grew up with this hymnal and we continue to use it in our daily family worship. The care in the organizing of the hymns is evident. The hymns are complete. Many newer hymnals only contain partial hymns so they can cram more titles in one book. What good is a title when it's missing all the stanzas or missing the refrain?! Quality over quantity! All my most loved hymns are in this hymnal, though we did get an insert for 'How Great Thou Art'. Even when I just pass it sitting on the piano, I think, "Hello, old friend".
