Widely regarded as one of the best hymn writers of our time, Herman G. Stuempfle, Jr. wrote almost six hundred hymn texts. In addition to the three hundred previously published in earlier volumes, this collection makes available seventy-five more hymns, songs, and carols. Many of these texts are based on lectionary readings, and all are set to familiar hymn tunes. Stuempfle’s poetic grasp of scriptural images coupled with his impeccable sense of meter breathe modern relevance into the familiar and treasured tune suggestions. These contemporary texts will also delight and inspire composers looking for quality hymn texts to set.
