A thoughtful housewarming gift, birthday, baptism, holiday, wedding or anniversary gift. This vintage hymn can be a special reminder of the times you spent in church, songs your grandparents sang, or just a reminder of your faith.
Each hymn is vintage. Each on is unique. It is taken from a 1936 hymnal which guarantees it to have all the wonderful character that only something valued and treasured can have. All pages show some wear, as they are over 120 years old. There may be small tears on edges that are glued down so that it will not ruin the hymn, small folds on the corners. Some hymns can be slightly off center as the pages were not precisely printed on the page. Some may still have pencil or pen marks on them.I will do the best as I can to keep them in the condition in which they were found because there is so much beauty in that.

And up from the rocky steep,
There arose a glad cry to the gate of

And the angels echoed around the
