List of Hymns[1]

  • Copyright note: Although this songbook is copyrighted in 1923, there is little variation between the list of hymns in this one and the public domain 1919 version. Therefore, it is the opinion of the poster that the changes are not significant enough to make the list in and of itself copyrightable.
