The church hymn: A consideration of fundamental and practical nature. This study expresses the conviction that the liturgy, hymns and music of the church serve a necessary function and makes an appeal for their regeneration in the church. Such regeneration would, as a consequence of the relection on and experience of the depth and wealth arising from Biblical songs, foster a deeper love for the hymns and songs of the church. However, at the same time, this study also protests against the tendency, Under the pretext of renewal and in unison with the spirit of the times, to render the ministry, liturgy as well as the hyms of the church supericial. This study wishes to make an appeal: that we, on the grounds of a better knowledge of the songs of the Bible and the hymns sung throughout the ages, arrive at stronger church songs applicable to present times.
