I found an old hymn book at an estate sale in Greensboro, NC. It is titled “The Hymnal – Army and Navy”. There was no Air Force back then. The book was published by A.S. Barnes and Company Incorporated 1942. The copyright on the book was 1941.
I came across some hymns that I attempted to update. I hope I did not do too bad. The hymns are:
- How Sweet and Silent is the Place. The writer of this song is listed as Alice Freeman Palmer.
- How Sweet the name of Jesus Sounds. The song writer for this song is James Newton.
- A third song not in the hymnal that I came across is “Dear Lord Jesus, Precious Jesus is credited to Watchman Nee.
The are the three song that make up my project called 1942.
Dear Lord Jesus
