An Arminian pastor said every church should have two hymnals and the Trinity Hymnal should be one of them. While some of the included hymns are difficult to sing and fail to excite like the vapid "praise" songs that is the common fare in far too many churches today, the selections are for the most part meaningful, uplifting, and encouraging. Every family should possess and use this hymnal in their personal and family devotions. The hymnal is available with and without the Westminster Standards. ( )

Contains many excellent hymns. Many were previously unknown to me. Theologically rich. ( )

I've become "at home" with this hymnal in spite of its faults. Far too many 19th century "revival era" hymns. Hint for you pastors - If it says "by Franny Crosby," just skip it. My biggest complaint is the seemingly covert theological redacting of too many Reformation era hymns. At times there seems to be an anti-Lutheran, anti-Christendom ethos to this hymnal. It's odd really. Do an experiment. Get out your copy of The Lutheran Hymnal and place it along side this one. Begin flipping to hymns found in each one (skip the obviously familiar Isaac Watts variety hymns). Begin comparing the words. Note the differences and ask yourself, Why was there a change made here? What teaching found in the Lutheran hymnal is being obscured by this one? Sometimes it's a benign improvment in language for clarity sake, but once in a while it is down right disturbing. (E.g., compare TH #108 with TLH #521. Why would the editors of TH use such an inferior text?) ( )

Prefer the red Trinity hymnal which has the names of the songs instead of numbers.
