Read by LibriVox Volunteers

(3.6 stars; 4 reviews)

This collection was a joint effort by the chaplains of the US Army and the Navy to meet the needs of divine services conducted in the Army and Navy, and for, in the compilers' words, "the upbuilding of patriotic citizenship."

These 20 hymns from the book were selected by the singers. (Summary by Kevin Davidson)

Thanks to all the singers. Some are our favorite readers give us their performance.from their hearts. If you are wanting professional singers this is not for you,but if you just want to listen to hymns and want a spiritual uplifting this worked for me. Thanks again to all the singers I really enjoyed and will listen many more times.
