Item description for Hymns for the Family of God
Midnight Blue by Fred Bock & Bryan Jeffery Leech...

Color - Midnight Blue This comprehensive compilation by Fred Bock employed the assistance and recommendations of over 40 pastors, musicians and laymen, and cooperation by scores of authors and publishers. It was also the first-time use of the songs "He Touched Me," "The Lord's Prayer" and "It Is No Secret," now considered hymn standards. Congregational readings contain scripture passages selected from among 20 respected Bible versions and appropriate inspirational writings by Billy Graham, C.S. Lewis, Peter Marshall, Charles Allen and Oswald Chambers, among others. Over 50 optional last-verse harmony or descants add to the beauty of these arrangements. This hymnal serves as a complete lexicon of music for the Church today, inspirational and functional to each member of the diverse family of believers.

Reviews - What do customers think about Hymns for the Family of God
Midnight Blue?

Don't use this hymnal or any like it.  Mar 11, 2008
The church we attend uses this hymnal, and I think it is the worst hymnal I have ever seen. I love hymns, I love to sing them, and I sing all verses of almost all well-known hymns, and many that are more obscure, from memory. I am constantly being unpleasantly surprised by the word changes as I sing these hymns. Did the publisher think we would be unable to understand words such as transient, asunder, laud, sullen, verge, or hundreds of others that have been in hymns for years, but in this hymnal have been inexplicably changed? This makes me feel as though I am being treated like a child, and I deeply resent the philosophy behind this practice. Reducing the eloquent language of hymns to this second-grade level is demeaning to adults, and cheats children of the opportunity not only to enlarge their vocabularies, but also to aquire a feeling for the beauty of the language of hymns. It makes me feel connected to the Christians who have gone before me to be able to continue singing the songs they sang. We are fast becoming a church and a nation where generations are unable to sing the same songs together from memory, and feel that ageless connection. Bill Gaither and his cohorts are at least partially responsible for this, and I say, "fie on them."
A pianist/organist from Minnesota  Apr 10, 2004
For those of you who have used your looseleaf/spiral edition until it has fallen apart as I have, the publisher, Brentwood-Benson has a website ( on which you can order a black, looseleaf edition of this hymnal. Choose "hymnals" on the left side of the homepage and scroll to find "Hymns for the Family of God." You'll have to register to buy it online but you'll be given directions how to do this.
What I wish  Mar 6, 2001
This book, though published in 1976, has hymns that I consider contemporary together with the old established hymns of the Protestant Church. The meditations and Scripture readings in it are very helpful for planning devotional times with groups.

But what I wish is that Hymns for the Family of God could be spiral bound so that I could use it more easily at the piano. I break the spine a little each time I use it, and I wish that were not so.

Exceptional organist/pianist companion!  Nov 10, 1999
As church organist/pianist, I have utilized this hymnal almost every Sunday for the past 20+ years! Hymns from it are suitable for regular worship, at times of meditation (communion/during prayer), for preludes/postludes, as well as, weddings, funerals, and baptisms. To this day I have never found a better compilation of hymns encompassing multiple faiths, all religious seasons, and including all the "old favorites". I'm just ordering my second the cover on my first one (originally purchased as a gift for me by my mother at a Bill Gaither Trio concert-way back in the late 70's) has finally fallen apart! Don't be without this one! I highly recommend it!
This is an extraordinary hymnal.  Mar 7, 1999
All of the best hymns are collected in this one book. Praise the Lord
