Item description for Christ in Song by Philip Schaff...
CHRIST IN SONG: Hymns of Immanuel from all ages is a unique compilation of the best hymns from every branch of the Christian Faith. Philip Schaff, best known for his massive History of the Christian Church, has compiled hymns that center upon the Person and Work of Jesus Christ. Charles Hodge said, "After all, apart from the Bible, the best antidote to all these false theories of the person and work of Christ, is such a book as Dr. Schaff's "Christ in Song." The hymns contained in that volume are of all ages and from all churches. They set forth Christ as truly God, as truly man, as one person, as the expiation for our sins, as our intercessor, saviour, and king, as the supreme object of love, as the ultimate ground of confidence, as the all-sufficient portion of the soul. We want no better theology and no better religion than are set forth in these hymns. They were indited by the Holy Spirit in the sense that the thoughts and feelings which they express, are due to his operations on the hearts of his people."

Reviews - What do customers think about Christ in Song?
An excellent source of little-known hymns Apr 9, 2008
This text-only hymnal gives translations of hymns that come from a wide range of Christian authors and expressions. Schaff's notes are very helpful (see his notes on Toplady's "Rock of Ages") in placing each hymn in its historical and theological context. Rhythmic metres are not given, but it's not hard to figure them out. This book came recommended by Kevin Twitt of Indelible Grace Music (Reformed University Fellowship) in a lecture he gave to a church music class. I would recommend this book just behind GADSBY'S HYMNS and HART'S HYMNS.
