Product Description

Abide with Me is a gorgeous collection of images from the sites, sounds, and history that gave birth to some of Christianity's most poignant and revered hymns. You are
familiar with these songs, but do you know:
The hymn specially written for a sister's wedding in
30 minutes
The privileged poet and hymnist who would
die ministering in India
The first British hymn ever written and its original
language.
In the past 300 years, no other collection of poetry and music has been voiced or loved as consistently as have British hymns. Every week during those centuries,
worshippers in churches throughout Britian, Europe, and America have read and sung such verses as "Rock of Ages" and "Abide with Me." These hymns have become staples of our culture.

Vividly portrays the inspiration and history of twenty of the most popular hymns.

Includes a free 23-song CD featuring beloved hymns, in a cappella music.
