This short eBook takes 25 of the most well-loved hymns and describes the story of how they were written. Many of the hymns have special meaning or amazing stories. For instance, What a Friend We Have in Jesus was never meant to be published. It's author, Joseph Scriven, enclosed the words as a poem of comfort to his ailing mother. Discovered by Ira Sankey, it has become a well-spring of comfort to generations of Christians. And that is only part of the story of this great hymn's origins. 25 Most Treasured Gospel Hymns includes the stories of hymns like Amazing Grace, Blessed Assurance, In the Garden, The Old Rugged Cross and Victory in Jesus. Enjoy these stories and grow to appreciate these hymns in a whole new light by reading this fascinating, faith-building eBook.
